Our topic this half term is tourism and holidays in our local area.
In English we will be producing a poster about Great Yarmouth tourism and holidays; we will be learning to identify textual features. We will be continuing to develop our grammatical knowledge for example; writing in the present tense, using conjunctions, capital letters and full stops.
During our topic sessions we will be focusing on History. We will be looking at and comparing changes in living memory to beyond living memory (an enrichment visit to the Time and Tide Museum is planned). We will also be looking for children to be using common words and phrases relating to a passing of time, e.g. in the past, long ago and many years ago.
In Art and Design and Technology we will be making 3D posters, reviewing techniques and exploring how to make them eye catching. We will be designing and making our own 3D posters advertising holidays in Great Yarmouth by collaborating our writing from English.
In Science we will be identifying and naming a variety of common animals including fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals.
It would be really helpful if you can ensure you are reading and practicing their spellings three times a week at home with your child.
