*Our Christian Value for the term*
Our Christian value in the final term is 'Justice'.
Justice means giving all people - particularly the poor and oppressed - what it is right and fair for them to have: life, health, freedom and dignity.
It is about acting out of a concern for what is right and seeing right prevail. It is about social justice, especially for those who suffer most and are least able to protect themselves.
Justice is all about being fair and kind and ensuring that whatever we do we know it is morally right for everyone.
'For the LORD is righteous, he loves justice; upright men will see his face.’
*Our Learning for this term*
Our Topic this term is Around the World
Through Science and Forest School we will have the opportunity to continue our learning about animal groups such as mammals, amphibians, reptiles, insects and birds! We will also focus on the season of summer in our outdoor learning and look at how day length and temperature changes throughout the year with the different seasons.
We will be creating some great dances themed from dances around the world in PE, as well as taking part in golf with Synergy on a Thursday afternoon. Our Computing unit this term will continue to focus on internet safety and through the use of Natterhub the children will learn about personal information that we should not share with strangers online. We will be locating the seas and oceans around the world in Geography, as well as spotting weather patterns around the world. In DT this term we will learn about where our food comes from - from Farm to Fork, as well as which countries different types of food originate from, for example, pasta. In PSHE we will be finding out what to do when we feel anxious or worried about some things and be practising some mindfulness techniques.
Our Talk for Writing in English text this term is The Big Blue Whale. Through this non fiction unit we will have opportunities to write a non-chronological report about an animal, using features of a fact file including headings, subheadings, hook questions, alliterative titles, similes and comparative language. There will be lots of learning opportunities to explore the use of adjectives effectively as well. Of course we will continue to focus on our handwriting, capital letters, full stops, finger spaces, exclamation marks and question marks.
In Maths the units for this term in maths include fractions of shape and number to the half and quarter, money and time.
