In our poetry unit, we will be looking at the poem ‘What is Pink?’ Children will be creating their own free verse poem about different colours and what represents them. In our fiction writing, the children will be reading The Tiger Who Came For Tea and writing a journey tale. This journey tale could be about a different animal that came for tea and have a different ending. In our non-fiction, the children will be creating their own leaflets all about tigers.
This unit introduces pupils to data and information. They will begin by using labels to put objects into groups, and labelling these groups. Pupils will demonstrate that they can count a small number of objects, before and after the objects are grouped. They will then begin to demonstrate their ability to sort objects into different groups, based on the properties they choose. Finally, pupils will use their ability to sort objects into different groups to answer questions about data.
