Welcome to Monet Class
Mr McKay and Mrs Simpson
Please see below for our long term learning plan for the new school year.
Just before half-term, we are studying Britain since WW2. We will be finding out about how the lives of people were changed by events and significant trends in society. What was life like in the 40s, 50s and 60s?
In Art, we will be designing and creating our own poster of iconic images from the 1940s and investigating the work of Monet. After half term we are experimenting with the theme of ‘Pop Art’, which came to prominence during the 1960s.
In P.E. we're developing our skills in striking and fielding games such as Cricket and Rounders. In addition, we will be practising athletic activities involving running, jumping and throwing.
In Literacy, we are studying how flashback is used in fiction to recreate past events and reveal more about characters. We are identifying different moods and feelings that authors create in stories and will be using role-play to explore alternative scenarios for stories. We will be writing our own short stories with flashbacks.
In Numeracy we are investigating the properties of 2D and 3D shapes. This will include using the full co-ordinate grid to reflect shapes and examining the area/perimeter of shapes. Later in the term, we are interpreting and constructing pie charts and conversion charts.
Our ICT work involves using the internet effectively in order to research information for our topic and creating Powerpoint presentations of our findings. We shall also be using sequence, selection and repetition when creating our own programmes.
Our work in Science, will involve examining the impact of diet, exercise, drugs and lifestyle on the way our bodies function.
We are looking forward to attending the Church Schools' Festival at Lincoln Cathedral at the end of May and travelling to PGL for our residential and activity weekend towards the end of term.
