Welome back to the Summer Term. 

Our new topic for the term is 'The Wonderful World of Wheelock'

The children will be exploring maps, both present and past to look at how Wheelock has changed over the past century. We will look at the different places of worship within the vilage and how the canal was used to transport goods from the Salt Mill in the vilage. We will study photographic evidence from the past and see if the children can recognise some of the more established buildings in the village. 

In science we will continue to look at classification, widening our research to all invertebrates and vertebrates. We will look at habitats and food chains. As part of our biology studies we will look at the function of teeth and the human digestive system. We have some great investigations lined up.

In literacy, We will studying a story called 'Leaf' by Sandra Deickmann. The children will be writing a story about a polar bear who has found himself adrift at sea and lost in an unfamiliar place. They will also be researching polar bears to write a non-chronological report. Later in the term we will be reading and writing poetry based on the ocean.

In maths we have a huge focus on time, learning to tell the time on an  analoge clock and converting between 12 and 24 hour clocks. The children need to be able to solve time related problems, reading time tables to find information and understanding the link between days, months, weeks and years.

 

Things to remember

PE is on a Wednesday afternoon and Woodland activities this year will be on a Friday afternoon.

Children will need warm, waterproof clothing and outdoor shoes for the woodland.

For PE, a white top, dark shorts, warm tracksuit bottoms or leggings, warm top and trainers or pumps. 

PLEASE COULD YOU LABEL ALL PE KIT, WOODLAND KIT AND SCHOOL UNIFORM WITH YOUR CHILDS NAME, IT IS MUCH EASIER TO MATCH LOST ITEMS WITH THEIR OWNERS IF THEY ARE NAMED.
