This term in Blue Class...
Summer Term 1: We will be jetting off into the Summer term with our new topic 'Hooray... Let's Go On Holiday!' In Geography, we will be finding out about the places that people go on holiday, how they travel there and the different geographical features of these holiday destinations. Our focus will be on Brighton as well as further afield and we'll think about why tourists might like to visit these different places. We'll be capturing our favourite holiday destinations using Art and writing post cards inspired by Emily Gravett's 'Meerkat Mail'. In History, we will be thinking about holidays that we may have been on in the past and how holidays have changed over the years. In Computing, we will create and debug our own transport themed programs. Our focus in P.E. will be developing our skills to play net games and practicing for sports day! In Maths, we will be adding and subtracting one and two digit numbers to 20, learning to recognise 2D and 3D shapes, exploring patterns and exploring how to measure length and height.
We are very excited to have Miss Ransley covering Mrs Mannion's PPA time. With Miss Ransley, we will be learning how to create a soundscape to match a beach scene and in Spanish we will be learning about the Spanish flag and how to hold short conversations including how to say how old we are. For R.E. we will look at precious books, both personal and religious, how they are handled and read and how they influence people and h ow religious beliefs and ideas can be expressed through arts.
