This week as writers we will be using the story of Penguins in Peril by Helen Hancocks. We will be using active literacy to retell the story, focusing on different aspects of grammar and then rewriting the story.
Our Place on Earth
This term we will be finding out about our local environment and the community that we live in. We will be investigating Trimley St Mary and exploring the local area on foot. We will be learning geographical vocabulary linked to maps. We will be using google maps to look at Trimley, Felixstowe and the UK.
This half term as Scientists we will be investigating plants. We will be exploring the parts of a flowering plant and where different plants like to grow. We will be researching what plants need to grow well and planting a selection of seeds. We will also be caring for our class sunflower and potatoes.
This term as Mathematicians we will be investigating money. We will be using money in problem solving and calculating how much change we will need.
