Imagine If...

This week in IPC we are continuing our "Green Fingers" unit.

In Knowledge we will be:
- Learning the parts of a plant (roots, stem, leaves, fruit and flower)
- Learning different different ways seeds are dispersed
- Learning about food chains 

In Skills we will be:
- using a variety of texts to gather information

Our understanding performance will be linked to the Big Questions... "What if there were no....?"

The children will research, with help, what animals and other plants rely on other plants as they deepen their understanding of how life is connected. We will link this learning to being accountable global citizens, and look at the role that humans have on nature and the environment.

This week in Maths:

We will continue learning about Multiplication and Division, sharing and grouping real objects to equally divide and group them. The children will learn to record these using the standard symbols.
We will also be learning to identify notes and coins, using our knowledge of number bonds to make different amounts.

This week in Literacy:

Linked to our IPC unit, the children will write an information text about plants. About the function of each plant part, about seed disposal and about food chains.
