THIS TERM AT A GLANCE - Spring Term

Spring 1

We can’t wait to set sail and explore our new topic ‘Land Ahoy!’ This half term we will be sailing around the United Kingdom learning as we go! In Geography, we will learn all about the four countries of the United Kingdom. We will locate each of country on a map then focus on their human and physical features. In Science, we will be learning all about living things and their habitats; investigating why different animals live in different places. We will practise identifying and classifying whether objects are living, dead or have never been alive. We will also complete an exciting design and technology project as we weave our own glittering pot of gold! We will begin by exploring weaving techniques. In Computing we will begin to understand pictograms using the 2Count program on Purple Mash. The children will practise collecting data to answer a question and then show what they’ve learnt using a pictogram. Throughout English, we will explore lots of exciting pirate texts.
