Summer 2

In English we will be reading a story about a bear (title to be revealed). We are continuing to use adjectives in our writing and lengthening our sentences by using 'and'. We will also use comparative language by adding 'er' or 'est to words. The children will continue to use the prefix 'un' changes the meaning of words. By now we should be consistently using capital letters and full stops correctly. We should be sitting our letters on the line with clear finger spaces to separate words. We will recap plural and when to use 's' or 'es'. 

In Maths we will finish our learning on fractions, finding one half and one quarter of shapes and quantities. We will be learning about positional direction. We will learn different turns (half turn, quarter turn, full turn), clockwise, anticlockwise, left, right, forwards, backwards, above and below. We will also learn our ordinal numbers. We will then move onto learning numbers to 100. Finally we will look at Money and the Time, learning the different coins and o'clock and half past.

In handwriting we will be continuing to learn joins. 

In Art we are looking at printing using different medium e.g hands, feet, fingers, toys.

In Science we will learning about plants.

In Geography we are learning aboutmapping skills using a key and compass directions.

Our PSHE topic this half term is: Changing Me.

In RE we have posed the question: Why should we care for others?
