What is life like in Africa?


Our current topic focuses on life in Africa. We will be focusing on Science to explore and compare the differences in living, dead and never alive things, identifying habitats and what suits different animals and identifying a variety of plants and animals.  In our English, we are also looking at stories set and written in parts of Africa.

Mark Making


For the first three weeks of Term 1, our whole school completed a mark making project which built upon fine motor skills, creativity, team work and presentation. The project ended with a museum around the school to showcase all of the children's learning.





In Maths, we are getting better at our understanding of place value with numbers from 0 to 100 and adding and subtracting numbers. We will explore different combinations of tens and ones, adding, subtracting and explaining our thinking. A good understanding of this topic will support trickier learning throughout the year.



In English, we are reading and exploring stories set in different parts of Africa. We are continuing to focus on using cursive handwriting, capital letters, full stops and adjectives. Over the unit, we will be writing stories, poems and non-fiction.




In RE, our first topic is Creation where we will be finding out more about the different parts of the bibles and stories that we are not yet familiar with, such as Amos.
