Our big question for Term 2 is
What happens when I fall asleep?
Twinkle, twinkle, little star. Why are there stars in the sky at night? Does everyone go to bed at the same time? It’s time to find out more about night time.
This half term, we’ll be exploring the dark and mysterious universe and finding out what happens while we are fast asleep. Snuggling up with comfy cushions and blankets, we’ll listen to bedtime stories and nursery rhymes. Zzz... Wide awake once more, we’ll learn about people and services that work at night, the Hubble Telescope and nocturnal animals. We will be using our imaginations to think about what other life we might find in the universe and learning about why it is dark at night. We’ll also find out more about how good bedtime routines can have a positive impact on our health. Ready, steady, brush your teeth! Getting creative, we’ll make constellations out of battery-operated tea lights, and star mobiles out of silver sequins and glittery pompoms.
Below is our termly topic map as well as our topic specific vocabulary. If you have any questions, special skills or interesting subject knowledge linked to any of our topics please let us know; we would love to invite you in.
Mild chilli words are words that your children should know the meaning of and use them in everyday conversation.
Hot chilli words are words that your children may have heard but perhaps don't yet fully understand their meaning. They are words that would be in an adults everyday vocabulary.
Spicy chilli words are very topic specific and may require discrete teaching. It is our aim that your child will be able to use them correctly and in context by the end of the topic.
