1 Celebration – Monday Feb 23 rd We have arranged an Educational Visit from ‘Real History Alive’ The children will spend the whole day learning about the Great Fire of London and what it was like to live during the Stuart period. There will be a fun/fact interactive live show which uses technology mixed with live actors to bring the era to life and then the children will take part in a variety of fun hands on workshops for the rest of the day. History – The children will learn about the Great Fire of London. They will be finding out what happened in the Great Fire of London. They will ask: How do we know about the Great Fire of London? Why did the fire spread so quickly? How are houses different now to 1666? How was London rebuilt? The children will use a variety of different resources to help them answers these questions and develop their knowledge and understanding of the past. Literacy – children will continue to be given opportunity to practice and develop their joined handwriting style. Much of this terms writing will be based on non-fiction linked to the theme in the form of reports and recounts of events in history. They will also improve their skills through diary writing (inspired by Samuel Pepys) and poetry. They will be reading, learning, performing and writing their own poems on a theme of fire. Through this the Y2 children will be concentrating on the use of capital letters and full stops and also will learn to use exclamation marks and question marks. Y3’s will continue to develop their sentence construction and use of a variety of punctuation including the above and also speech marks and apostrophes for possession. All Y2’s will continue to have a daily lesson in phonics. Y3’s will be learning about spelling rules in particular how to add suffixes and prefixes to words and they will learn about apostrophes for contraction and possession. Guided Reading will continue to take place every day. We will have a ‘Pudding Lane Bakery’ as our role play area. Maths - Our main focus in number this term will be on understanding, using and recalling multiplication facts. Y2’s will practise counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s. They will learn to recognise multiples of 2, 5 and 10 and odd and even numbers up to 100.They will continue to practise and use their knowledge of place value within 2 digit numbers. Y3’s will continue to developing their understanding of multiplication and the instant recall of the 2,3,4,5,8,10 and 11 times tables. Later in the term we will also look at division and begin to investigate fractions of shapes and numbers. We will take some time to learn about graphs and data collecting, making our graphs and charts and using them to interpret the information we have found. We will also be learning about right angles and rotations. Maths - Our main focus in number this term will be on understanding, using and recalling multiplication facts.

RE- This term we will continue our focus on Worship within the Christian faith and will in particular be looking at different types of prayer and why they are important to Christians. Geography - The children will learn where London is and what it is like today compared to the London of Whilst doing so they will note the physical changes that were made to the geography of London created by the fire. They will also name, locate and identify characteristics of the four countries and capital cities of the UK and its surrounding seas. PE – Gymnastics and dance will continue to be on Tuesdays and Fridays. The FUNDA coaches will continue to help us to deliver the sessions on gymnastics on Tuesdays. Science – This term Art– Inspired by our Great Fire of London theme, our Art will be very cross curricular this term. We plan to learn about primary and secondary colours as we learn to mix paint. We will be using paintings and pictures of the great fire of London to inspire our own sillhouettes of the fire using painting and collage techniques. Art Week - During the first week of this term we have a whole school “Art Week” where each class will be studying a famous artist and using lots of different skills to create pictures and models in the style of the artist. We have chosen to focus on paintings by Gustav Klimt – in particular a Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer, a portrait of Emilie Forge and the Tree of life. French and Music will continue to be taught on Wednesdays by Mrs McElroy and Mr Calvert respectively. Mrs Drinkall & Mrs Kemp Computing – Children will learn to use technology to organise and present ideas in different ways based on the theme. They will practise using the keyboard to add, delete and space text for others to read, to change images using basic cropping tools and to save and open files. They will learn about the world wide web and how to use safe search tools to find appropriate information about the Great Fire of London. Science – This term the children will be learning about materials with a focus on their properties and uses of materials for Year 2 and a focus on fossils, rocks and soils for Year 3. PSHE – we will be spending some of our PSHE sessions discussing the role of firefighters in the present day and our first half term theme is ‘Going for Goals’
