Class Teacher - Mrs Pyman
Teaching Assistant - Caroline
Welcome back! It's hard to believe that we are already in Term 3. Once again we have a great term of busy learning planned as well as finishing off on a very busy note last term with our KS1 show. We were incredibly proud of the students and all their hard work which culminated in an extremely successful production of the Bee Musical.
We finished off last term with a global art day and we made Chinese dragons. We were delighted with the end result.
This term we will continue to enjoy a variety of reading and writing tasks focusing on factual and instructional texts. We will increase the content and vocabulary of our creative writing. In phonics we will encourage good spelling choices and continue working on Phase 4 and 5. We will memorze a favourite poem and begin using dictionaries to consolidate our alphabetical understanding.
We will continue to develop number skills and quick recall of number facts. We will build on mental and written strategies for addition and subtraction.We will consolidate counting in steps to and across 100 as well as partitioning numbers. We will continue with practical activities in multiplication, division and measuring. We will be adding 2 digit numbers as well as lots of practise with the various ways of handling data.
We will complete awesome animals in the first few weeks of this term. Our topic after that is marvellous materials and early explorers, with the main focus being on transport. There will be activities linked across the curriculum especially in science, history and art.
