Classes/Dosbarthiadau

Dosbarth Rhossili will be doing lots of different activities based around our theme of 'Frozen Planet'! 

This term, in Literacy, we will be reading a range of non-fiction texts to learn all about our frozen planet! We will be writing Arctic animal fact files, using all our senses to think of adjectives to describe the Arctic, writing post cards home from our Arctic Scientist Base Camp and using everything we have learnt to write a poem about Arctic life. Every week we will also have phonics sessions,  handwriting, spelling, comprehension work and one-to-one reading. This will include our sound of the week and letter of the week!

In numeracy this term, we will be going into our Maths Makes Sense (MMS) groups to work on many different aspects of numeracy including number, time, money and more. 

In science we will be studying reactions. We will be conducting lots of experiments to find out what happens when you mix different materials. We will also record our findings on the iPads by creating lab reports following the scientific method.

We will use incidental Welsh throughout our school day. The pupils ask each other how they are feeling, what the weather is like and say the date every morning in Welsh. In our lessons we will be learning the Welsh words for numbers, feelings and the weather.

The pupils will attend weekly music therapy sessions. They will explore different instruments and learn about pitch and rhythm. We will also attend sing/sign assembly and learn lots of new songs and how to sign along!

In ICT we will cover:

· iPad apps including iBook's

· E-safety

· Use of laptops for research

· Learning how to print, save and open our work

· Creating pictograms

· Finding and saving images

· Creating images

In art, we will be doing lots of activities based around our topic ‘Frozen Planet’. We will be exploring texture by using puffy paint to create 3D polar bears, painting rocks to make our favourite Arctic animal pets, getting messy to create a polar bear scene and using different materials to create cold colour Arctic collages.

In history, we will be learning about famous polar region explorers. We will be writing a letter to Mr Shackleton to apply to be part of his crew for his Antarctic mission!

In geography we will be learning about the Arctic and Antarctic and comparing these places with the UK. We will also be learning about our planet and how we can help to look after it better!

We will be looking at the key features and stories of Christianity and comparing these to other religions. We will be making stained glass windows, collages, baptism candles and Christingle’s.

We will be using junk modelling to make a rain stick and binoculars for our base camp role play area. We will also be doing STEM activities to build our own igloos using different materials.

This term, in PE, we will be focusing on games and sensory circuits. We will be practicing the basic movements of running, jumping, balance, throwing and catching.   

It's going to be a very exciting term!
