Autumn 2


This half term our topic is 'Healthy Humans'.


In Science we will be looking at the 'Eat-well plate' and discussing what makes a healthy diet. We will also look at each of the food groups and how they help our bodies.


In Design Technology, we will be looking at picnic food that is available to buy e.g. premade sandwiches and evaluate them. We will then design our own sandwich for a picnic.


In Art, we will be doing some observational drawings of fruit and vegetables and creating our own clay sculptures.


In English we are starting the half term by looking at Fables. We will be reading lots of them and discussing the morals, we will innovate one and eventually write one of our own. This half term we will also be learning about Poetry and writing letters.


In Maths, we are continuing to work on addition and subtraction, with a focus on written methods. We will then go on to look at multiplication and division.


Please see below for our Half Term Bulletin.



As part of our Science topic, we made shadow puppets to investigate shadows.

Making slime for our Big Write instructions.
