Hello to all from the fantastic Poldark Class!

 

Can you believe it is our last term?   Well done to all of the Year 2 children who did so brilliantly in their SATS quizzes. We are all extremely proud of your effort, perseverance and enthusiasm.  The children in Year One have also been working very hard toward their phonics screening check assessment and have really impressed all of KS1 staff with their willingness to improve and growing confidence. Keep up the great work!

 

Our theme the final term is  is Amazing Africa and we will be basing lots of our new learning on one of my favourite films The Lion King. Please open our topic medium term plan below in the link section to find out more.  In Geography, we will study Human and Physical features comparing the UK to Africa.  We will also continue to explore Living Things and their Habitats in Science. 

In English, will be writing poetry and riddles based on African habitats and different animal species. Then, the children will read stories from African cultures and watch an animation as a stimulus for diary writing and a case study based on Kenya.  The children will write setting descriptions as well as recount the story of the Lion King in their own words. Finally, the children will use the Chromebooks to research their favourite African animal and write a non-chronological report/information text.
