Welcome to the Sapphire Class page.
Our topic this term is Farming. We will be going on many adventures with our wellingtons. They will take us on a visit to a farm where we will learn about farming. We will explore the answers to many questions including: Are all farms the same? What does a farmer do? We will be looking at how farms and farming have changed through time. In Geography we will be carrying out fieldwork to look at Audlem and the local farms. We will be sharing the story of Harry's Home to help us compare a town and a city.
In Science we will be learning about plants and animals. We will be looking at and comparing a variety of habitats. We will be sharing the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and plant our own magic beans to discover what will happen.
In English we will be sharing many stories and texts related to farming. We will look at Rosie's Walk and Farmer Duck. We will also be sharing Where my wellies take me. This will help us to explore the environment around us. We will learn about suffixes and connectives and use these as we write recounts of familiar stories.
In maths we will be focusing on addition and subtraction to 20. We will be investigating 2D and 3D shapes and their properties. We will also be looking at early multiplication skills.
