Autumn 2

Our new IPC topic is 'Treasure Island'.  Have a look at the class galleries to see us dressed as pirates...

 

This topic involves learning about the United Kingdom, maps and compasses.  We will be looking at some other countries around the world and talking about whether they are hot or cold and why.  Again we will be contextualising our learning and making it cross curricular. 

 

We will also be learning about different fruits and vegetables and how they can be part of a healthy diet.

 

Some of the key words we will be using this term are:

 

Country United Kingdom Wales Scotland Northern Island
Compass North South East West
Weather Temperature Climate Hot Cold
Healthy Seeds Pips Ingredients Peeling

 

Try to use these words at home to discuss daily activities.

 

 

 

 

Autumn 1

We learnt all about 'The Earth: Our Home'.  It was a science based topic that we contextualised into all areas of the curriculum.  We also learnt about ourselves and our five senses.  We learnt about living things around us - particularly different groups of animals.

 

Some of the key words we used in class and you can use at home are:

Mammal Reptile Amphibian
Insect Fish Bird
Carnivore Herbivore Omnivore

 

Why not ask parents and carers to give you a spelling test on these words?  Remember to show them the overview you were given.
