This term, we are exploring the history of toys and games. We are thinking about the toys that we enjoy playing with today, and then asking our parents and grandparents about the toys they enjoyed playing with when they were little, looking for similarities and differences.
In science, we are exploring which materials can change shape through the exertion of a force, such as a twist, push or a pull. We will carry out experiments to change the state of some materials from solid to liquid to gas, noticing which changes are reversible and irreversible.
Our geography focus is the United Kingdom, and we will be exploring some of the key features of each country and learn about their capital cities.
In art, we are using a variety of materials to create marks and patterns, and making close observational drawings.
Using the story, Stanley’s Stick, we will explore the school grounds to find our own stick, and then write an exciting adventure story about what our stick becomes, and where it takes us.
In maths, we are learning about place value, comparing amounts, finding one more or less than a given number, and using the greater than, less than or equal to signs.
