Dashing Defeat


As Readers we will be immersing ourselves in the story of ‘The Paper Bag Princess’ to allow us to get the best writing outcomes. We will be exploring a world of literature relative to our new topic.

As Writers  we are going to have fun writing monster poems, invites to parties and setting and character descriptions. We will be using imperative verbs and alliteration in our writing.

As Mathematicians  we are going to be focussing on measurement: mass, volume and capacity. We will also be using our mathematical reasoning skills to complete maths investigations linked to our science topic.

As Scientists  we will be continuing to focus on the human body and animals. We will be planning experiments and investigations. We will be writing predictions and recording data. We will also share and analyse this data together. We will continue to broaden our scientific knowledge and also research famous scientists.


As Historians  we will be learning about the Tudor Period, in particular Henry VIII. We will be learning about the Tudor timeline and what life was like back then.

As Artists  we will continue to expand our artistic vocabulary and build on our artistic techniques. We will be looking at still life drawings and creating some of our own.

As Geographers  we will build our knowledge around Countries and the Capital Cities around the world. We will continue to revise our learning about the Continents and Oceans.

As Religious Educators  we will be learning about Hinduism, including Diwali and their worship.

As always we will be continuing to develop our personal, emotional and social skills through working in pairs, groups, activities and circle time. We will be building on our resilience and preparing ourselves for the transition into Key Stage 2.
