Spring Term 2020
The topic this term is ‘To Market! To Market!’ The children will use a variety of methods (e.g. maps, Google earth, globes and internet research) to find out about local markets and markets all over the world. They will also visit Oswestry market to buy fresh vegetables in preparation for soup making. They will research where fruits and vegetables come from and look at seasonal weather patterns in such places. They will locate the 4 countries of the UK on a map and will locate the capital cities and google their markets . We will learn about the history of Oswestry market; how it has changed and why. In Music, they will learn songs about markets (Let's go to market... ) and will chant rhymes (To market, to market ...) and will experiment with changing rhymes and songs. In Art they will create a sketchbook and practise using the media of print to explore fruit patterns. They will look at famous artists such as Arcimboldo, Marino Petro and Clina Polloni. In Design Technology, the children will explore vegetable soups and will design, make and evaluate their own soup. The children will regularly use computers and will learn how to stay safe when using the internet, by following the SMART rules.
Homelink books: These must be handed in every morning so that we can receive any important messages or to record if your child has read.
Reading - If your child has read three times or more a week their name will go into a chance box. They will then be in for a chance of winning a Meadows School bookmark and a stamp! If they receive 6 stamps in their homelink book, they receive a pass. This means they can choose an activity that they would like to do. There are lots of activities that they can choose from i.e. bringing in their own toy, taking a piece of work to the Head teacher, playing games on the computer at lunch time etc.
