Summer Term 1

 

Our topic this half term is 'In The Garden'. In science we are learning about plants. This will involve lots of growing experiments and trips to the allotments. Our art this term, will involve creating art from natural materials. 

Our literacy will be based on stories associated with plants, growing and in the garden. We will also be covering the key grammar needed in year 1 & 2, along with spelling contractions and adding suffixes (ly & ful). 

 

For geography we are comparing plants, habitats and life in the UK to deserts around the world. This will also involve our plants topic, as well looking at which animals live in the dessert, and what life is like in this hostile climate. 

 

In maths is term we will completing lots of reasoning tasks. We will be working on questions such as: how many more, how do you know, and explain why. We will also be continuing with missing number sums.
