Welcome to Chestnut class, our Key Stage Two journey begins here!
Spring (2) – Welcome back, Chestnut team hope you have had a lovely time off over the holidays. We hope you are feeling rested and ready to learn!
We will be looking at the book ‘Return’ by Aaron Becker. This is a fascinating wordless book and will allow the children the opportunity to use their own rich and varied vocabulary to write setting descriptions. The children will continue to use expanded noun phrases with adjectives and prepositions to write descriptively. The children will be writing a range of sentence types; questions, exclamations, statements and commands as well as confidently applying a range of punctuation.
In Maths this half term we begin by revising our understanding our British money. We will be adding and taking amounts and working out change. After our money unit we will be looking at statistics, collecting, organising and reading data from a range of charts, tables and graphs.
In Science we will be learning about changing states of matter – we will learn to identify, describe and group solids, liquids and gases. We will also be taking part in British Science Week – this is wonderful news as we have a number of aspiring young scientists in Chestnut class.
The children will be with Tommy on Wednesday afternoons, they may wear their PE kits for this.
Curriculum – ‘What have we learned from the Romans?’
We will be developing our history skills learning about another time period, linking in our geography skills as we learn more about Britain and expanding our map skills as we plan to invade The Celts from Rome!
