Curriculum Information








This half term our learning is inspired by our topic:

   'Brr... it's cold!'

 We will investigate the question:

What makes Penguins and Polar Bears different?


We will be reading "Lost and Found" by Oliver Jeffers in our Literacy lessons and will create our own adventure stories about a lonely, lost animal. 

In Maths this half term, the centre of our learning will be on number and place value within 10.

In our Science lessons, we will identify and name a variety of common animals, describe and compare the structure of a animals and explore and answer questions about animals and their habitat, with a specific focus on cold animals.

In our Geography lessons this half term, we will identify cold areas of the world and investigate the South Pole and North Pole, in addition to looking at a world map to locate the Arctic, Antarctic and British Isles.
