Michael's Class 2023 - 2024

Spring Term 1

 

Hello and a very warm welcome back to all children, parents and staff! We hope you enjoyed the winter festivities and are ready for 2024!

In Michael’s Class this term our topic is ‘Weather round The World’, which stems from this term’s Geography topic. The children will be exploring all the different types of weather that can be found across the world’s continents and focusing in on extreme weather conditions such as tornados and tsunamis!

This ties in nicely with our Food Technology topic of ‘Desserts Around The World’, in which the children will be learning about delicacies from foreign lands, before creating their very own!

In PE this term we begin our journey to becoming Team GB’s next Olympic gymnasts! The children will learn a multitude of balances, rolls and jumps before putting them together to create a fluid gymnastic sequence.

Our focus in this term’s Science lessons is ‘States Of Matter’, in which the children will be learning all about solids, liquids and gases. The pupils will firstly learn about their properties and particles, before putting on their lab coats for some state-related experiments!

Our focus in English is ‘Myths and Legends’. The children will learn of such tales like ‘St George and the Dragon’ and mythical creatures such as the minotaur and cyclops, all while improving their own descriptive writing skills.

Meanwhile in Maths, the children shall brush up their calculation skills by exploring different ways to add and subtract. They will then learn all about volume and capacity, before moving on to fractions and statistics.

Please come back soon to see what we have been up to!
