This half term our topic is Tanzania
This half term we will be learning about Tanzania and answering the question: What is it like for a child living in Tanzania?
During Literacy we will be learning about story writing and how to use punctuation correctly including how to use speech marks. We will also be looking at different ways to write poems such as an acrostic poem, poems which rhyme or riddles to describe animals found in Tanzania. We will continue our work on non-fiction writing by creating an information poster all about Tanzania.
As mathematicians we will be learning how to measure correctly using a variety of measuring tools. We will measure the actual size of animals in Tanzania by choosing and using a variety of measuring equipment. We will also be looking at position and direction and using the correct language to programme a Probot around a course.
As scientists we will be learning about animals that can be found in Tanzania and their habitats. We will be looking more closely at materials and their suitability for different tasks e.g. carrying water or blocking out sunlight.
As Geographers we will be learning about continents, locating Africa on a map and comparing it to the equator and other continents. We will compare and contrast the UK with Tanzania through the use of photos, books, the internet and videos. We will use a range of different media to look at the human and physical features of Tanzania as well as to find significant places and landmarks there.
Please take a look at the Tanzania plan below for more information.
PE days for Class 8 are Mondays and Thursdays. Please make sure that children have a PE kit and appropriate shoes for outdoors activities.
In Year 2, children will be going to the woods as we would like to do this when it links with learning in class. We will always give you notice before hand and would love any helpers to join us.
