STEAM  

 
 
 
 

This term our STEAM focus is Maths and we will be answering the question is ‘Can I create, carry out an experiment and present my data in a variety of different ways?’ and we will be presenting investigations showing: frequency and properties of materials, comparative tests for waterproofness, considering the different stages involved in creating a poncho (for example designing, making and evaluating) and developing knowledge of stitching and joining.  

To help with our STEAM project we would like to ask for a voluntary contribution of £2 per child to help us fund our exciting STEAM project. Your donations will be used to buy materials for the children to design, test and make their own rain poncho for Barnaby bear to wear while travelling around the world.  

 
 
 
 

Maths 

 
 

Within our Maths, we are exploring multiples of 10 up to 100. This will involve thinking about:  

  • How 10 ones and one 10 are equivalent.  

  • How multiples of 10 can be represented using names and numbers.  

  • What multiples of 10 may look like in an expression or an equation.  

We will then begin to build on this knowledge by exploring:  

  • What positions numerals of 10 have on a number line and how we can estimate where they will go.  

  • How we can use our knowledge of the composition and place value of 10 to add and subtract ten to a multiple of 10.  

 
 
 
 

Writing 

 
 

This term we will begin our English journey by re-writing a simple narrative. We will be focusing on the structure of a simple sentence and how to compose these using the correct punctuation. We will then start to explore how to use a small range of grammatical devices including:  

  • First and third person pronouns 

  • Time conjunctions  

  • Appropriate adjectives.

Music 

 
 

As part of our South African ‘Afropop’ unit we will be exploring the song ‘Hands, Feet, Heart’ by Joanna Mangona. We will be taking an integrated approach to music where games, elements of music (pulse, rhythm, pitch etc), singing and playing instruments are all linked. As well as learning to sing, play, improvise and compose with this song, children will listen and appraise other similar tracks.
