For our Spring term we will be learning:
The children will be exploring the Sacrament of the Eucharist. This is the Sacrament of communion with Christ and the Church.
St Mary’s Cathedral live stream Mass every week day at 12.05pm or you can watch a previous day’s recording: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC12EvW0Eqg-cFTh5i2y_EQw

They will also continue to develop their reasoning and problem solving skills.

Our English lessons this term will be based on the text Charlie and the Chocolate Factory; through which children will work on their writing, grammar and punctuation skills.
Our guided reading text is The Secrets of Platform 13.
When reading this text and completing the guided reading activities, children will begin to learn new vocabulary; they will also be developing their inference and comprehension skills. All of which will help them to both enjoy and understand any text.

Children will be learning how to become a scientist. Over the next few weeks they will learn the purpose and importance of scientific investigations. They will discover new scientific vocabulary and learn how to ensure any investigation is fair. These skills will then support them with working Scientifically across all areas of the curriculum.
Our Extreme Earth topic will be teaching the children about the destructive powers of nature, from volcanoes and earthquakes to tsunamis and tornadoes. Children will learn about how and why these natural phenomena occur, and the ways in which they affect people and the environment.
Children will be learning how to develop their drawing skills. They will be trying their hand at different techniques, including drawing different textures, using different tones and creating affects through shading.
For something completely different and just for fun try visiting Muffalo Potato and completing a few of his challenges!
