Our topic this half term is:

Seaside Explorers


This half term our topic is called ‘Seaside Explorers’.

We will be learngin all about the seaside this half term. we will be looking at the animals that live in and around the seaside, the different habitats that fish live in and looking at the impact of pollution on sealife.

We will be reading non-fiction books to learn about what is happening in the real world and also learning how to use this type of book. We will learn about the contents page, page headings, labels and captions. We will look at what a glossary is and how the index system works in a non-fiction book.

For our fiction books, we will be reading lots of lovely seaside inspired stories such as Sharing a Shell, Barry the Fish with Fingers, The Rainbow Fish and The Snail and the Whale. the childrne will be learning about how to identify an author and illustrator of a book. We will be looking at blurbs and how they help us to get excited about a story and looking at the structure of a story, using the beginning/middle/end to define the main events.

In maths, we will be focussing on mass, volume and capacity. This will be the first time they children will have been formally taught these topics, so it would be helpful if they were able to compare the concepts of heavy and light, full and empty at home with real life objects. The children will also be learning about money, adding coins together and giving change.

Then we will spend some time looking at data collection before recapping the skills we have been learning through the year by solving some problems using what they know.
