This term Brazilian Parrots’ topic has been ‘Misty Mountains Sierra’. We have learned about mountain ranges around the world and famous mountains such as Mount Everest. We have become more confident with using atlases and have begun to explore how mountains are formed.  

 

English:

In English, we have been reading ‘Running on the Roof of the World’. The children have found it interesting finding out about life in Tibet and the challenges faced by Tash and Sam. The class worked well in groups to story map what has happened so far and used these story maps to retell the events in their own words. We will continue with our text in term 2.

Linking to our topic, the class researched the life of Edmund Hillary, the first man to climb Mount Everest. We discovered how he persevered and worked hard to achieve his dream of climbing the highest mountain in the world. We used all of the information we researched to create some brilliant biographies.

 

Maths:

In Maths, we have been focusing on place value. We have concentrated on understanding the value of digits of numbers up to 10,000. We have used different resources to represent the value of digits, such as place value counters and base 10 equipment. The children have practised rounding, comparing and ordering numbers. We also regularly practise our times tables and are trying to get faster at recalling them!

Science

In Science this term, we have studied states of matter. The class have sorted materials into solids, liquids and gases. We have looked into how particles behave in these different states and enjoyed acting it out. The class particularly enjoyed investigating whether gases had weight and experimented by removing the gas from fizzy drinks. We have begun exploring the processes of evaporation and condensation and will continue with this next term.

 

Topic

Our topic, ‘Misty Mountains Sierra’, runs over two terms. The children have enjoyed learning about various mountain ranges and the features of mountains. We used atlases and maps on learn pads to identify mountains around the world and closer to home in the UK. In Art, children enjoyed developing their drawing skills to sketch mountains such as Everest, K2 and Ben Nevis. We have been discovering the different types of mountains and how they were formed. We will continue with this in more depth next term.
