Welcome to St. Lorenzo’s Class

Teacher: Miss Buttarazzi

The Advent Term- What will we learn?

In English we are focusing on Stories with Familiar Settings where the children will write an innovated story based on a Traditional Tale. Following this, our next learning topic focuses on creating a Non-Chronological Report linked to an aspect of the Local Area. Our final learning topic is Poems on a Theme where the children will construct their own innovated poem.

In Maths our learning begins focusing on Place Value, followed by Addition and Subtraction.

In RE we will start with exploring the topic of Beginnings, focusing on The Creation Story from Genesis. We will then focus on Hinduism learning about using the Puja at home, followed by the Shabbat in Judaism.

Our Science topic focuses on exploring the Local Environment Plants using Nature Diaries.

In Geography we are focusing on learning about the place where children live (and play) – Loughborough.

Our History learning will focus on significant places in Loughborough (including schools and playgrounds).

In Relationship and Sex Education (RSE) we will be learning about Emotional Wellbeing.

We will be incorporating Art and Design alongside other subjects to ensure children have opportunities for:

  • Observational drawings
  • Rubbing/texture
  • Shading
  • Printing

In PE, the children will be doing gymnastics.

You will see below our timetable for this next half term along with the knowledge organiser for our new Geography topic: The Place Where I Live.

Look out for up-to-date messages and homework on Class Dojo.
