Term 3 - 'Food Glorious Food'
This term, our topic is ‘Food Glorious Food’. We will be focusing on different types of food, where it comes from and how to maintain a healthy lifestyle. We will also be learning about a range of recipes and will get to do some cooking!
In art we will be using clay to create models of fruit from observations. We are sure the children will greatly enjoy getting their hands messy! Science will focus on humans including how we grow, what a balanced diet looks like and how exercise helps us to stay healthy. In PSHE, we will be talking about how to keep safe in other ways such as using medicines safely and understanding that some products can be hazardous including cleaning products.
The children will learn about money in maths and then multiplication and division following this. Our maths lessons are always hands-on as we believe this is the best way for children to learn! It is important for the children to be able to solve problems in practical ways.
Our writing lessons will be focusing on instructions, poems and lists. The children will also build on their skills learnt in Term 2, recognising different word types such as verbs, nouns and adjectives and using them accurately in their writing.
We have a very busy term planned with lots of exciting experiences for the children to get involved in!
