Our Guiding Question this half term is: How has the landscape in Barnsley changed over the last 100 years?
To help us answer this question we will be thinking about the following things:
Where do we live?
What did Barnsley look like in the past?
What does Barnsley look like today?
How has Barnsley changed?
How did they move coal?
To help us answer this question we will be visiting the National Coal Mining Museum for our fieldwork.
We are learning all about and writing our own:
Narrative Stories about Cinderella
Recount about our visit to The National Coal Mining Museum
Diaries linked to the story Boy of the Deeps
We will be learning about multiplication and division, statistics, shape, length and height and fractions.
We have been learning to count in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s. It would be useful to continue practicing counting forwards in 2’s 5’s and 10’s to 100. Children also need to practice their number bonds to 20 and be able to recall these rapidly.
We will be learning about plants.
We will be learning about where we live.
We will be learning about how Barnsley has changed in the past 100 years.
We will be learning all about E-safety and exploring Purple Mash. Children can practice these skills at home using their purple mash logons. (These are stuck inside your child’s planner)
We will be designing and making our own moving vehicle.
We be developing our throwing and catching skills.
We will be exploring the key question: Is it easy to be kind to everyone all of the time?
