We will begin our PSHE lessons by focusing on physical health and wellbeing - what helps me choose. We will learn about making healthy choices around food and understand what influences our choices around food and healthy eating. We will then look at the importance of physical exercise and the impact that this has on our bodies. We will then move on to exploring radicalisation and how this can affect people. After this, we will focus on water safety, how to assess risks and what to do in an emergency. Finally, we will look at online safety and the effects of cyberbullying. Alongside this we will have one emotional literacy lesson per week focusing on skills such as motivation, empathy, self awareness, self regulation and social skills.


To start with, we will concentrate on SPAG (Spelling, Punctuation, and Grammer) and the different sentence types we use within school. We will then move on to poetry concentrating on free verse poems. After this, we will then focus on our shared text, The Hodgeheg by Dick King Smith. We will begin by using our imaginations and writing a sequel to the story. Next, we will create an explanation text all about hedgehogs. Finally, we will create an itinerary for our Filey trip.


At the beginning of the half term in maths we will be focusing on time. We will try to tell the time to the nearest minute. After this, we will move on to decimals including money, where we will recognise and convert between fractions and decimals. Alongside this, we will continue to regularly practice our times tables.


In science this half term we will be learning about living things and their habitat. We will begin by looking at the characteristics of different living things and grouping them in a variety of ways. After this, we will focus on environmental change and how this can affect living things.


During geography this half term, we will be focusing on hills and mountains. We will begin by locating the highest hills and mountains in the UK on a map. We will then look at the features of hills and mountains. Finally, we will learn about the lake district and how tourism affects it.


This half term in RE, we will be answering the key question: How are important events remembered? We will be considering which events are important to us. We will then study an event in Islam, Sikhism and Christianity.
