Welcome to Sycamore Class!
We have a very exciting term ahead!
Our Topic this term will be 'Local Landmarks' and we will be exploring the question ' What makes our area unique'. To begin we will focus on where we are in the world and investigate what geographical features can be found in the area surrounding school and our homes and identify whether these features have been created by humans or whether they are part of our natural earth. We will further our understanding of our area and what makes it unique by looking at the term 'Landmark' and what this means. We will discuss the well known landmarks within the UK before pinpointing the landmarks that we recognise within our own town. We will use our computing skills to research and discover the Landmarks that can be found within our county of Lancashire. The information we gather will be used to create an information based text to share with our chosen audience.
In English we will use a range of digital and text based sources to work on and build our sentence structure skills. We will begin the term with the digital stimulus 'For the birds' where we will create simple well structured sentences to match the narrative. We will then use the fictional text 'No-Bot the Robot' to showcase our use of different conjunctions before focusing on the use of adjectives to describe nouns. We will also use the text 'The disgusting sandwich' to apply our descriptive writing skills. Towards the end of the term we will focus on the non fiction texts and their purpose to before creating our own explanation page to showcase our Project Based Learning.
In Maths this term we will begin by focusing on number and place value and begin to apply what we know to support our addition and subtraction. We will use concrete resources and pictorial jottings to support our learning before moving on to abstract methods. Throughout our maths learning we will be solving a variety of number based problems and using what we know to give reasons for our answers.
Homework will continue to be uploaded onto Seesaw on Fridays and is due to be completed for the following Thursday each week.
Sycamore Class have PE on Wednesdays. Please ensure your child has a kit in school.
Children are expected to read at home each night and reading books will be changed on Tuesdays and Fridays. Please note that the children's reading records must be signed at least twice before their book is changed.
