This term we will be focusing on number skills. Children will be encouraged to extend their understanding of place value, sequences and ordering by working with larger numbers up to one million and decimals up to 3 decimal places. The children will also be rounding numbers, using their answers to estimate.
This term we will be exploring Creation and Incarnation. The children will be discussing Genesis and asking questions about science and religion. We will explore why Jesus’ birth was a significant moment for Christians and how that moment still impacts us today.
We will cover two units this term; Blood heart and Light up. In the first unit, the children will be investigating what makes the heart healthy and how it functions. The children will recognise the impact of diet, exercise, drugs and lifestyle on the way their bodies function as well as describe the ways in which nutrients and water are transported within animals, including humans. In the second unit, children will investigate how light travels, how we can see objects and explain why shadows have the same shape as their objects.
Our focus this term is Protective Behaviours and No Outsiders.
Children will be encouraged to find ways they can keep them selves safe, how they know they feel safe and unsafe and how to accept others for who they are.
