Summer Term First Half
Can party food be healthy?
This half term, Class 1 and 2 will be finding out about healthy eating and ways to stay healthy. They will conduct their own research into their favourite foods and identify the benefits of having a balanced diet. Once they have identified ways to maintain a healthy lifestyle and discussed the benefits of each food group, the children will be planning and organising their own party in readiness for the Royal Wedding. They will be responsible for designing a healthy menu for their celebration and inviting some very special guests to enjoy the celebration with them.
In English they will be looking at Fairy Tales, the children will have many opportunities to retell Fairy Tales that they already know and enjoy, which will help them to identify the familiar and interesting story language that they will then be able to use in their own stories. By the end of the half term they will have written their own Fairy Tale. The children will become more aware of and learn to use direct speech, contractions and apostrophes in their own writing.
In Maths the children are consolidating their knowledge of number and place value through all of the challenging activities that they are set each day. The main topic of this half term is fractions. By the end of the topic the children will be able to identify and find non-unit and unit fractions. Year 2 children will be expected to find ½. ¼, and ¾ of amounts. Throughout the half term we will also be looking at different measures; length, mass, capacity and time. The children will be comparing and ordering, as well as reading scales accurately to measure in centimetres, meters, grams, kilograms, litres and millilitres.
Our RE we will be focussing on our question; Who is a Muslim and what do they believe?
