Fantastic Mr Fox
Summer Term – 2nd Half
This half term our focus will be on Fantastic Mr Fox and learning about animals. Below is a brief account of what we shall be covering and some important information for the rest of the term.
We will begin by creating our own wanted posters and also create a debate of why fox hunting should be banned or not. Once we have been on our trip to the Owl Sanctuary we will then write a recount of our visit.
A spelling sheet went home at the end of last half term but if you need another one, please just ask. The children are tested every Friday.
We will begin the half term by working on time and concentrate on telling the time to every five minutes and comparing durations of time. We will then cover capacity and temperature and finish the term by carrying out our own investigations.
The children continue enjoy the challenge of 99 Club and trying to better their score each week. Please continue to keep up the practice at home as being able to compete mental calculations quickly can really help children with many aspects of their math’s work. Any questions please ask.
This half term we will be looking at animals and their habitats. We will learn about their food chains and what all living things need to stay alive.
We will look at the continent of Antarctica and compare to our early work in the year on Africa. We will learn why some animals can survive there and how they have adapted to their environment.
Textiles – We will design and make our own finger puppet of a fox. We will learn how to thread needles and create stitches.
PE days will continue to be on Monday and Friday’s so the children can wear their PE kits in on these days. Our focus this half term are Throwing and Catching and Core Strength.
This half term we will look at how we belong to different groups. We will look at the Christain ceremonies of marriage and baptism and make comparisons to Judasim and Hinduism.
This half term we will focus on ‘Making Relationships and Feelings’ We will explore feelings within the context of our important relationships including family and friends. We also aim to develop knowledge, understanding and skills in three key social and emotional aspects of learning: self-awareness, managing feelings and empathy.
This half term we will learn how to use ‘Scratch Junior’ and how to create a set of instructions to get Sprite to move.
