Class Teacher - Mrs Pyman
Teaching Assistant - Ben
Welcome to a new school year. 2020 has certainly been a year like none other BUT how wonderful to have a new crop of kids, back IN the classroom after so many months of online learning. We are loving being 'together in our bubble!' Enjoy having a peep at what goes on in Chiradzulu.........
We have started the year off learning a few of the intricate steps for writing, such as writing ON the line, using finger spaces, sounding out words and getting our ideas down on paper. We are learning how to make lists and labels, beginning to use correct punctuation, especially capital letters and full stops. All this whilst still remembering which way the letter faces AND to keep it on the line. Pure Genius!
We will focus on number and place value, counting across 100 from any given number. We will be learning about more or less, greater than and less than and introducing the greedy crocodile sign to show this. We will partition and identify teen numbers, begin number bonds to 10 and solve single step mathematical problems. We will introduce practical addition and subtraction at a basic level this first term.
Our topic this term is ' Awesome Africa'. We will be learning about our wonderful home Malawi and the continent Africa when we learn all 7 continents. We will be comparing Africa to other continents, learning about different weather patterns, animals, food and traditions. Our theme of Africa will be the basis of our art work, DT activities and foundation subjects.
