Spring 2

Spring 2


Our Spring 2 Topic is called Mighty Metals. This is a Science-based topic, with a focus on materials, magnets and forces.  The children will have the opportunity to investigate friction by testing toy cars on different surfaces, as well as conducting a Science experiment about magnets. They will then apply these skills to create a mechanism for a game...


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...

The children will continue to develop their number skills, especially working on multiplication and division using the short method. They will also look at shape, with a focus on 2D shapes and properties, such as right angles, perpendicular lines and parallel lines. We will also continue to work on mental recall of number facts and times tables.

At the end of the day, we will read books by Jeremy Strong, starting with The Hundred Mile An Hour Dog.
