Term 5- Wriggle and Crawl
We are very excited to be starting our new topic of 'Wriggle and Crawl' where we will building on our knowledge of living things and habitats by looking at minibeasts. Have a look at our curriculum newsletter below to find out about all of the exciting things we will be getting up to.
Please find below the progression of knowledge and skills that we will be covering for each subject over the term.
In Maths these last couple of weeks, we have been focusing on 2D and 3D shapes. We have also practised describing the properties of these shapes using the correct Mathematical vocabulary including; sides, corners, vertices, edges and faces. We then played games with the shapes where we had to guess the missing shape and ask our partner questions to establish which shape had been taken.
Our focus this term in Art are sculptures. We spent some time looking and discuss the Canadian minibeast sculpture called Maman. Maman is a bronze, stainless steel and marble sculpture by the artist Louise Bourgeois. The sculpture, which depicts a spider, is among the world's largest!
Poetry is an enjoyable aspect of English and this week we have recited a poem called 'Caterpillar, Caterpillar'. We added actions to the repetitive poem and enjoyed performing our poems to the class. Later in writing, we had a go at writing our own bee focused poems. Perhaps you have a favourite poem or poem book at home?
