Summer Term 2
This half term our topic is 'Rainforest Adventure.'
In Geography, we have already started planning the questions that we would like to find out about the Rainforest. We will be looking at some of the plants and trees in the rainforest and finding out what animals we may find there. We will also be learning about the UK and comparing it this to Sri Lanka. We will also compare hot and cold places and begin finding them on a map.
In Science, we will be encouraging the pupils to start planning their own experiments. We will be learning how to plan out, and then record our results. Our first experiment will be about plants and we will discuss the best place to grow plants in our results. Next, we will plan an experiment about how to keep ice frozen the longest. The pupils will be making observations and will be discussing their findings in a group.
In Literacy we will be working on editing our work, and trying to improve what we have written. We will be consolidating our knowledge of capital letters and full stops, and using these in our writing. We are also planning to complete some non-fiction writing about the Rainforest as well as story writing around a new story.
In RE we are learning about Hinduism.
In PE we are busing practicing for Sports Day! We will be practicing running and variety of team games. Later in the term we will continue to practice our skills in various ball games.
