(click on the image to listen to the story)
Can you use a variety of materials (wood, plastic, metal, fabric, etc) to create your own Traction Man?
Please bring in to school W/C 27.01.20.
Please complete your weekly homework on Education City.
The usernames and passwords are stuck in communication diaries.
We will be rewriting the story of Traction Man. We will be focusing on using exclamation sentences, questions, commas in a list and expanded noun phrases. The children will also be making up their own adventure that Traction Man and Scrubbing Brush go on.
They will be using their own imagination and innovation skills.
At the end of the half term, we will be looking at toys and writing a non-chronological report comparing toys from the past and toys today. We will also be writing a set of instructions on how to make a Traction Man.
Using our super "Power Maths" scheme, this half term we will be exploring multiplication and division, statistics, length and height, properties of shapes and fractions.
This will include solving word problems, recording information in tally charts and pictograms, measuring, ordering and comparing lengths, recognising, sorting and drawing 2d shapes, finding quarters and halves of shapes and numbers.
Finding out how the shapes of solid objects made from some materials can be changed by squashing, bending, twisting and stretching.
This half term the children will be completing orienteering. This will include:
- Listing different points on a compass.
- Understanding a key on a map.
- Find where they are on a map and which way they are facing.
Art & Design Technology
The children will design, make, test and evaluate their own Traction Man toy. This includes deciding the materials that they would
like to use, creating a fair test and writing up an evaluation.
The children are also going to design their own playground.
