Our Spring 1 topic is called Urban Pioneers.
This has a focus on art, looking at street art, graffiti, urban landscapes and statues. The cross-curricular English focus is on the book 'Emil and the Detectives'.
The children will be writing a story based on 'Emil and the Detectives', then we will focus on the features of an autobiography and write a piece as a character we will create.
In Maths, the children will be developing their number skills, through formal written methods for all 4 operations. They will also be practising mental skills, such as number bonds and times table knowledge, and applying their problem-solving skills to money and measures. The cross-curricular links will grow through shape investigations in art.
At the end of the day, we will be reading The Julian Stories by Ann Cameron.
