Magical Worlds.



In Science this term we will be learning all about Habitats, the ecosystem and adaptations.



In Art this term we will be focusing on shading and the skills needed to blend colours together and learning how to use colour to create an painting of our imaginary world.




In PSHE the unit is inspired by the idea that we live in a diverse, multicultural and democratic society and that this is important and brings many benefits. It aims to enable the children to identify that they should be respectful of difference. In this unit, children learn about British people, rules, the law, liberty and what living in a democracy means. They also learn about the importance of being tolerant of differences within their society.


In R.E we will be learning about Islam.

We have been researching and finding out facts and information about Islam.



In Topic this term our key question is: What makes your magical kingdom unique or diverse? To answer this question we will also be learning about animals in our local area and comparing it to an alternative location.

We looked at underwater animals in oceans here in the U.K and an alternative location and recapped some prior learning about food chains.


In Math's, Year 2 will be learning about money followed by multiplication and division.

Year 3 will be learning about multiplication and division followed by length and perimeter.

Year 4 will be learning about multiplication and division followed by length and perimeter.

The children used lolly sticks to help them with division and remainders.

In English we will be reading Frindleswylde and children will begin exploring the characters, settings and plot of the story. They will write messages in role to Granny to describe what Frindleswylde has done to the cottage and take part in a decision alley to help Cora decide whether she should follow him through the ice pond to the world below. They will explore the author’s use of figurative language and develop this to write poetry. As they continue the adventure into the frozen kingdom, children will practice how to show feelings through dialogue and write birds-eye view descriptions in role as the stork. Stepping into Frindleswylde’s frosty boots, they will write persuasive speeches using figurative language to convince Cora to stay with him. Finally, after unpicking the themes of the narrative, children will plan and write their own sequel – Frindleswylde Returns.
