St. Patrick's Catholic Primary School - Our Learning!

Across the Spring term will complete a variety of learning. In English we will be building on our phonics knowledge, practising our Sight Words and new spelling rules, looking at sentence structure and punctuation and we will be learning completing a variety of writing, in a range of genres, based on several wonderful books. In Maths we will be looking at odd and even numbers to 20, numbers to 50, addition and subtraction within 20, 2D and 3D shape and weight, height, length and volume. In RE we will be looking at Special People and Special Symbols and Objects. Our computing focus for this term is using Purple Mash and PE we will be covering yoga, sending and receiving, dance and invasion.

For the first half term we will be attempted to bring some sunshine into the winter months with our 'Oh I do like to be beside the seaside' topic. As part of this we will be looking at the Isles of Scilly in Geography, the history of the seaside in History, seaside landscapes in Art and Musical Vocabulary: 'Under the Sea' in Music. Our English will be linked to our topic too as we study the books 'The Strom Whale in Winter' and 'The Pirates Next Door'.

For the second half term our topic will be changing to 'Into the Unknown'. As part of this topic we will be looking at map making in Geography, the history of flight and space travel in History, using everyday materials in Science, mechanisms in DT and pitch and tempo in music.  Our English will be linked to our topic too as we study the books 'Astro Girl' and 'Sidney, Stella and the Moon'.
