In Term 1, we are starting off with a poetry project based on 'The Lost Words' by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris. We will begin by identifying kennings in a poem and will go on to write our own kenning poem.
As our history project this term is based on Stone Age, we will be experiencing a day in the Stone Age and writing newspaper reports alongside this. Later in the term we will be reading 'Stone Age Boy' and basing our writing on this text We will be exploring the features of narrative writing and instructional writing with specific skills identified.
Our first topic in Maths this year is Place Value up to 1000. We are starting off the term by building our understanding of number representation and how the same number can be built by using different amounts. This will lead onto counting in 100s, 50s and creating opportunities to learn to count in multiples of 3.
This term, our project title is 'What was new about the New Stone Age?' This is a great project, and gives us the opportunity to begin developing our knowledge of history for us in Britain. We will be connecting our learning with our class texts. In DT, we will be designing and building our own Stone Henge. In Art, we will be using a variety of drawing equipment to create our own cave paintings.
This term, our first RE topic is Domestic Church and Family where we will be exploring how God is present in every home. This is expressed in the love that binds the family together within the home through good times and bad times.
Scripture: John 13: 34 ‘And now I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. If you have love for one another, then everyone will know that you are my disciples.’
