This term we will be learning about:

Literacy

We will be looking at stories with repeating patterns, such as The 3 Little Pigs, The Gingerbread Man, and The Billy Goats Gruff. We will also be looking at poetry around the 5 senses and humorous poetry. Children will be given an opportunity to write their own poems using rhyming words.  

Numeracy

In numeracy we will be looking at addition and subtraction. We will be using different resources such as, counting beads, cubes, numicon and number lines to support their working out methods. We will be using these methods with numbers to 20. We will be looking at word problems as well as missing number problems. We will also be looking at place value with numbers up to 50.

Science

In science we will be looking at the seasonal changes between winter and spring. We will be observing and investigating the weather and looking at what happens to the trees and leaves during these changes.   

Project

Every term we will give the children a 'project scrapbook' and a subject for them to research and study at home.  Parents and children can work together over a few weeks and hand in the finished projects on February 12th 2018. The best projects will win prizes!  The aim is to encourage children to be creative and self- motivated as well as giving them further opportunities to practise their key skills, such as reading, writing and maths, at home. The project given this term focuses on where the children live, the kind of house they live in, their family, what kind of places are around them and what they enjoy doing.

PE

  • White T shirt
  • Black shorts or leggings (above the knee for gymnastics)
  • Pumps or trainers

(Long hair must be tied back, no jewellery must be worn at any time and head scarves must be  securely fastened or removed for PE)

We take part in dance, gymnastics and outdoor games every week (depending on the weather of  course!) and children need to have appropriate kit for all PE lessons.  It is easier if PE kits are kept in  school on the children's pegs and only taken home at half term holidays for a wash.

Watch the Olympics gymnasts. Which piece of equipment did you like the most? How do the gymnasts help themselves balance?

We have been throwing and catching.  Click on the image below to watch some videos of great throwers and catchers.
