How did the blossom become an apple?
|Week 1||Week 2||Week 3||Week 4||Week 5||Week 6|
What is blossom and why is it so important for the
fruit we grow?
Can you make a presentation to show the
life cycle of an apple?
Could we grow any fruit in this country, if not why
|How can you capture the beauty of the blossom?||What happens to the water that you put into the soil to help a plant grow?||Why is it so important for us to look after the bees in our country?|
This half term the children will begin their Literacy looking at traditional poems. This will involve exploring a variety of poetry, using an online dictionary to find rhyming words, practising writing rhyming couplets and writing their own poem using rhyming couplets. We will then move onto recounts which will involve reading 'The Day I Swapped my Dad for Two Goldfish' and 'Diary of a Killer Cat'. Children will learn about past tense verbs, using adverbs and conjunctions effectivily, predict the ending of stories and write their own diary. In the last two weeks their learning will focus on the story Fantastic Mr Fox. The children will describe characters in the story, create story maps and eventually write their own version of the story with different characters and setting.
Numeracy will begin with place value, children will order numbers to 1000 and practise placing 3-digit numbers onto a 0-1000 number line. They will then practise multiplying and dividing any number by ten and count in steps of 10, 50 and 100. Children will practise adding 2- and 3- digit numbers using partitioning and their 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10 times-table. They will also practise doubling their 4 times-table to help find their 8 times-table and spot patterns. In week 3 we will be looking at fractions, they will learn to identify 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5 and 1/6, realise how many of each make a whole, find equivalent fractions and find fractions of amounts. After that the children will be introduced to angles and perimetre. The children will learn how to recognise angles and how to measure a perimetre of a 2D shape. In the final week we will be looking back at place value, this time focusing on rounding numbers to the nearest 10 and 100, and subtracting by counting up using the counting up frog.
What FANTASTIC work!
This week the children were asked to make a presentation to show the life cycle of an apple. They came up with some super ideas, some of which involved singing and even a play.
This week's child of the week is ...

Both of these children have been super ambitious this week and trying really hard. Emily wrote two fantastic poems independently and Amy-Jaye has been working really well in both literacy and numeracy.
