*Our Christian Value for the term*
Our value in term 5 is 'Trust'. Trust is essential to human life and lies at the heart of all relationships. Trust entails vulnerability, putting yourself in others’ hands. We have to trust experts - pilots, dentists, surgeons and learn to be trustworthy ourselves.
Psalm 91:2 I will say of the LORD, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.’ John 14:1 (Jesus’ words to his disciples) ‘Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.’
Trust is a really important value. It must be earned. If we do not trust someone it is very hard to build a good friendship with them. Talk together about:
• people who you know that are trustworthy.
• practical ways that we can show others that we are trustworthy.
*Our Learning for the term*
Walk on the Wild Side!
This term we are learning about animals and places around the world. Our English focuses on fiction and non fiction this term. Look at what we have in store...
This term we begin by reading Handa's Surprise! We will learn about the fruits that Handa carries in her basket, we will draw them and taste them and then learn how to use similies and alliteration to describe them. Then it's our turn to write our own version of Handa's Surprise!!
After we will move on to learn about non fiction texts and the features of a non chronological report. We will focus on writing a non chronological report on animals from the wild.
This term our Maths takes on a very practical twist. We are learning about money, measurement and position. We will be measuring in mass and capacity in non standard measurements and using the correct language to compare two different masses and volume too.
We continue to practise counting in different sequences, our focus is twos, fives and tens.
This term we look for signs of Spring. We will learn how plants change in Spring and will be able to name some common plants and trees found in Spring.
We will use the Springtime to plant lots of flowers and vegetables from seed and observe them as they grow and change.
This term we are working closely with Garry from Lincs2Nepal to learn how life in Nepal is similar and different to life in Lincoln. We will use photographs to help us understand these similarities and differences.
This term we focus on Incarnation. We will learn about how Christians celebrate Christmas and the importance of the symbols of Christmas for Christians and what they mean.
Linked to our Science, we will learn about having a healthy diet and understanding the different food groups that we must eat in order to maintain a balanced diet. We will make our own salads to enjoy!
This term we continue to learn how to be safe on the Internet and will use Natterhub to help us understand the importance of Internet Safety.
This term we will experiment with different instruments - looking how their sounds change as they are tuned and untuned.
