Termly Information Spring 1 2020
In English the children have been reading traditional Chinese folktales and writing their own. They have also written poems based on images from China. In amongst all the interesting context, we have been learning more about the features of good writing and are getting better at incorporating a range of literacy features into a variety of text types. The children particularly enjoyed some cross-curricular writing in science when they wrote the journey an animal goes on through its lifecycle.
Broad areas of the curriculum have been covered in maths this half term, including: adding, subtracting and multiplying fractions; area and perimeter of rectilinear shapes; estimating capacity; parallel and perpendicular lines; and symmetry.
“I enjoyed English most this half-term which is a first for me. I specifically enjoyed writing the lifecycle of a frog and working hard towards my pen licence.” Jessica K
“This half-term I really enjoyed what we did in maths, specifically geometry. Also science was very interesting and as a result I found it very fun even though I have never ever enjoyed science in my whole life. The golden time activities would be fun to do and I hope next half-term will be even better.” Claudia
“I enjoyed learning the meaning of the flag and about the terracotta army.” Kacper
“My favourite part was learning about the terracotta army and making my own terracotta army soldier.” Alana
