This half term our topic is ‘Hot and Cold’.The main focus for our topic is to compare climates in hot and cold parts of the world with our own in the UK. As part of this we will develop our knowledge of the world map, naming continents and oceans. In English, we will be reading stories from different cultures and also developing our story telling skills using Talk for Writing techniques. This involves learning the story and being able to confidently retell the story, including using detail to interest the reader. We do this by creating story maps using pictures. Later on in the term, we will revisit recounting our personal experiences. Children will write about places they have visited and their family holidays in the past. In Science we will be describing weather in the UK and finding out about seasonal changes. In Numeracy, we will explore the four operations, particularly multiplication and division.
