We hope you've had a wonderful Christmas break and enjoyed lots of time with your family and friends. Let's begin our new term and continue our love to learn!
This term our topic will be
This half term in English we will be focussing upon poetry and creative use of language. We will be enjoying a range of poetry such as riddles, rhyme and acrostics with a theme of animals and other living things. We will continue to use 'Read Write Inc.' once per week to embed key skills such as sound recognition, blending to read, segmenting to spell, comprehension and composition. We will enjoy story-time daily and take part in small group guided reading sessions.
In Maths we will focus upon a variety of ability appropriate skills such as number recognition and counting, addition and subtraction, shape, space and measure, multiplication and division etc. We will use a large variety of resources to engage and support the children.
During topic work we will be learning all about animals. We will be finding out about what they eat, how they move and look, what they all have in common and what their differences are. We will also study the weather and seasonal change and how this can affect living things such as plants and animals, through conditions for growth, hibernation etc. We will continue to explore our creativity through Art and Design Technology, Music and Computing.
