Our Spring 2 Topic is called Mighty Metals. This is a Science-based topic, with a focus on materials, magnets and forces.
The linked text in English is 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes.
The children will be writing a story based on 'The Iron Man', then we will focus on the features of explanation texts and link these to our exciting project in Mighty Metals...
In Maths, the children will be developing their number skills, looking at place value and formal written methods for all 4 operations. They will also be practising mental skills, such as number bonds and times table knowledge. We will also look at fractions, shape and time. The cross-curricular links will grow through measures, data and use of directional vocabulary.
At the end of the day, we will read books by Jeremy Strong, starting with The Hundred Mile An Hour Dog.
