Our topic for Summer Term 2 is: Blown Away
This term we will be exploring the world around us with a particular focus on weather and different weather patterns.
In literacy, the children will be writing poetry based on the text, 'The Wind Blew', by Pat Hutchins. Following the Talk 4 Writing framework, they will innovate their own poems about weather using 'The Wind Blew' as their model text.
In geography, we will be learning about the world's continents, The United Kingdom's four countries and capital cities. The children will create their own weather station where they will apply their learning to forecast the weather around the world.
We will aslo be learning about the artist 'John Constable' and his artwork, 'Study of Clouds'. The children will then use a range of materials to replicate and create their own cloud pictures.
At the end of last term, the children discussed what they would like to find out about weather. Here are some of the questions we will be answering: 'How is rain made?' 'How hot is the sun and why is it so bright?' 'Where does wind come from?' 'How is thunder and lightning made?'
Here are the homework grids for this half term. There is separate learning for reception and KS1.
