Our learning in school
During Term 5 our curriculum topic is Land Ahoy! Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum! Get ready to take to the high seas and set sail in search of treasure! Our science skills will help us to understand how boats float and stay waterproof. Our map reading skills will help us to identify different seas and oceans, and we’ll learn about famous sea explorers. Stories of pirates will inspire us to make pirate flags, treasure maps and fact files. We’ll even find out how to talk and sing like a pirate! Shiver me timbers; it’s going to be good!
Our guided reading and writing activities will be linked to our topic and we will continue to follow the Letters and Sounds programme in phonics.
In maths, our Year 1s will be learning multiplication and division, finding a half and a quarter, and position and direction, while our Year 2s will learning about length and measure, position and direction, and time.
