The Secret Life of Animals
Our topic in Leopard class this term is: The Secret Life of Animals.
During our English, we will be exploring the books: 'Rainbow Fish', 'Handa's Surprise and 'Rumble in the Jungle'. For our Maths, we will be covering addition, subtraction, multiplication and division as part of our calculation lessons. As well as this, we will be learning place value (1 more/1 less), fractions (halving and sharing by 2) and measurement (heavier/lighter).
Linking to our topic, for science, we will be identifying and naming common animals, looking at which animals are carnivores, herbivores and omnivores. We will be describing and comparing the structure of a variety of common animals, as well as identifying, naming and labelling the basic parts of the human body.
For Geography, we will be using an Atlas to locate places and we will be exploring the different seasons and weather conditions in the UK. We will also be comparing Bristol to Kenya, looking at different living conditions (nutrition, health and education).
For RE, we will be exploring what it means to belong to a faith/community.
For Art and Music, we will be designing and making animal masks, as well as exploring instruments and music from around the world.
I am looking forward to a fun and busy term!
