Welcome to the Spring Term.
What a wonderful start to the school year we have had. We look forward to continuing our successes this term.
This term, our topic will be, 'Once Upon a Time,' and 'Into the Wild.'
We will start the term by looking at a range of fairytales; including Hansel and Gretel in our Active Read sessions and Jack and the Beanstalk in our English lessons. We will be introducing a new character to the story in our writing and writing a Care manual for plants. This knowledge will be further acquired as we plant seeds for our outdoor planter in Science. We will be investigating the best conditions for growth.
Within Into the Wild, we will look at animal poems and researching animals.
In mathematics, we will be looking at numbers within 20: using addition, subtraction, one more and less, number bonds to 10 and within 10. We will learn about length, height and capacity.
We have lots of fantastic activities to complete over the next two terms: learning about animals around the world, making 3D arts and puppets. We will continue to play and learn, applying skills learnt in lessons, team work, role play and problem solving to enhance our daily lessons.
Our R.E lessons will focus on Christianity and in P.H.S.E we will be learning about our Dreams and Goal and what makes us healthy
