Where Do I Belong?


Our key text in literacy is Big, Bad Owl by Steve Smallman. We will use the text to write character descriptions, focusing on using adjectives to describe nouns and describe the setting of Cupcake Wood. Our final written outcome is to retell the story. We will publish our own books to share with our families and friends. We will also make a video using green screen technology to bring our story telling to life.

We are enjoying reading more of Steve Smallman's books in story time. We think he is a very funny author! Here is a link to his website:


In maths, we anre learning about place value, addition and subtraction, measuring length and mass and shape. We will work practically and pictorially to practise our skills and solve problems using efficient methods.


In Science, we are investigating growth in humans - discussing how humans change as they grow. We have investigated our bodies, measuring different body parts, and found that the oldest people are not always the tallest!

To investigate the spread of germs, we have set up an experiment involving touching bread with clean and unclean hands.

We will investigate and describe what happens to our bodies when we exercise and learn about the importance of healthy eating.


We are studying two artists this half-term - L.S. Lowry and Paul Horton. After looking at their work, we have compared their styles and looked at the different colours they use in their pictures. We will look closely at the buildings in their pictures and replicate the lines and shapes they use. We have practised mixing and blending the colours of the two artists in our own artwork. Eventually, we will create our own artwork, inspired by Lowry and Horton. 

Follow the links to find out more about the artists:

We have explored our local area to find human and physical features, recording the things we found along our route. It was very interesting to look closely at the buildings that we walk past regularly but never have the chance to study carefully. We will learn our addresses and talk about where we live in relation to school using online maps. We will create our own maps that show the human and physical features in our area. 


Mrs Brunton is working with us to teach us a new song, 'Hands, Feet, Heart.' It is an Afro-Pop song. We have practised call and response and put actions to the lyrics. As an introduction to rhythm and tempo, we have practised tapping out words using African drums. We will learn how to play xylophones and glockenspiels individually and as group, making sure we play in-time with each other.

We also join in with our singing assemblies, learning the songs 'Sunshine' and 'We Run the Show.'


Our area of focus in PE is athletics. We will practise and develop our running, jumping and throwing skills using a range of equipment. We will take part in relay races and practise passing a baton effectively, and make sure we react quickly to a starting whistle or shout. We will practise using our arms to create momentum to help us jump from a standing position. When throwing a javelin, ball or bean bag, we will make sure we stand in the correct position and let go at the most effective point.
