Welcome to Oak Tree Class!
This term our topic is "SUPERHEROES" In Science we will be learning about the five senses and the human body; how animals including humans have offspring which turn into adults. The children will also find out about and describe the importance of exercise for humans, eating the right amounts of different types of food, and hygiene. The children will have lots of opportunities to investigate using their senses to see whether wearing a hood has an effect on hearing and why.
In Maths we will continue to learn about Place Value to 50 (Year One) and multiplication and division (Year One and Two) and measurement .
In English the children will be exploring a wide range of texts including Nat Fantastic and will have a go at writing their own story about a super Hero. We will also be exploring comics and how the story telling is mainly through pictures and speech bubbles.
Our Literacy and ICT will link with History as the children will write a report about a chosen real life super hero from the past.In RE we will think about the questions " Why is the word ‘God’ so important for Christians? What do Christians believe God is like?"
Our PSHE lessons will continue to focus on relationships and friendships in particular.
