2nd Half Term


Posted by Sarah | Posted in General News | Posted on 10-11-2017

We have come back from our short half term break ready to learn and find out all of the new topics we will be learning about this half term.  It was really great to hear all of the wonderful things that the children had been getting up to over the holidays and they all seem to have had a good time.

This week on the blog we will be letting you know what we will be learning about this half term.  The overall topic is still witches and we will try to incorporate this into as many lessons as possible.  We will still be having weekly swimming, PE and music lessons as well as phonics sessions where we will continue to develop our skills in these areas.  This half term in crossroads we will be learning:

  • During Literacy we will be using the story of The Worst Witch to practice our reading skills
  • In Numeracy for the first half of the term we will be learning about capacity and making potions to help this.
  • In the second part of this half term, during Numeracy, we will be learning about addition and subtraction focusing on our number skills
  • During Science we will be continuing our learning about light but extending this to look at shadows, colours and using different lights
  • For History we will learn about the Romans
  • In DT we will be learning about houses and construction.  We will be making different houses out of different materials
  • In French we will continue our learning of numbers extending this to 10
  • During computing we will be learning about algorithms, which is instructions, so will be following instructions to make lots of different things.]
  • For PSD we will be learning about choices and practice making choices in lots of different situations
  • During RE we are continuing with our focus on life as a journey with a look at different ceremonies in the Christian faith.  We will of course be looking at the nativity and Christmas at the end of this term.

What a busy half term we will have in Crossroads

Have a great weekend and don’t forget to let us know what the pupils have been up to
