This half-term our topic is

Dinosaur Planet!


In Maths we will be learning:

  • Multiplication                                              We will be learning how to count equal groups - i.e. 2 + 2 + 2 = 6 /     3 x 2 = 6 
  • Division                                                        We will be learning how to share a group of objects – i.e. 6 ÷ 3 = 2     
  • Fractions 

    We will be learning how to divide shapes and quantities in to halves and quarters – i.e. half of 10 = 5.                                                             


We will be learning how to write riddles and producing similes for dinosaurs. We will be focusing on the text ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ and writing our own adventure stories with a focus on using adjectives. We will also be learning how to use non-fiction books as a research tool.


In Science we will be learning about different plants and animals and classifying them (herbivore, carnivore and omnivore).


IArt and D.T we will be designing and creating our own dinosaur puppets. This will involve developing the children’s fine motor skills through sewing.  We will also be developing the children’s observational sketching skills through applying line, pattern, texture and shape techniques.   


In History we will be learning about events beyond living memory (dinosaurs), Mary Anning (fossil collector) and comparing life in the past to now. 


In P.E we will continue to develop our gross motor skills through different throwing and catching skills.


In PSHE we will be learning about relationships and how to communicate our feelings


In ICT we will continue to develop our skills using 'Purple Mash' and create moving animations relating to dinosaurs.
