What We’re Learning
- Speak to older members of your family to find out how their childhoods were similar to or different from yours. Ask them about a range of topics, such as toys, food, home and school
- Use magazines, books and family photographs to find out how humans change as they grow. Look for people at different stages of life, including baby, toddler, child, teenager, adult and elderly
Our topic for Term 6 is “memories”. Can you remember being small? Being a baby and learning to crawl? Do you recall a favourite toy, maybe a teddy bear or a favourite book? Why not look back at family photos of special occasions, perhaps holiday snapshots or a birthday or two. Remember a wedding or a christening and find a funny photo of your parents when they were young. In literacy we are going to learn how to write a diary of days gone by and find out about the days before we were born. At the end of our term we are going to make a special box, a memory box, to keep special things safe. In years to come, you can revisit them and remember how you looked when you were young. Memories are special. Let’s make some more.
Bright Lights, Big City is our new topic this term. This topic teaches children about the physical and human characteristics of the United Kingdom, including a detailed exploration of the characteristics and features of the capital city, London. In Maths we are looking at 2D and 3D shapes and their properties.
