Spring 2 Learning: 

Pirates (History/Geography link): 

This term out topic is Pirates! We will look at what pirates are and how they travel on the sea (children could dress up as pirates over zoom when we research them!). For History we will look at the lives of significant individuals (sea explorers) and how they have influenced us today. In Geography we will recap reading maps an learn about the 7 continents of the world. In Science we will look at Plants (labelling plants/growing plants). 

In English we will look at the skills needed to write a non-chronological report. We will use our topic learning on Pirates to write a report about a pirate. After the non-chronological writing we will move onto to letter writing. 

In Maths we will look at 2D and 3D shapes. We will name and label different shapes and identify the shape properties. After shape we will look at fractions and how to find a fraction of a number using the bar model method.
