Wow! This year has flown! Can't believe we are already well into Term 3.
This term we will be focusing on letter writing using The Jolly Postman as our class book. We will explore the different genres of writing, mainly rhyme. We will also be looking at non fiction books to link in with our Topic of Materials. We will be discovering and comparing books written by the same author - Julia Donaldson. We will learn how to use a dictionary and we will continue to focus on correct punctuation, adjectives and start using connectives and adverbs for more exciting writing. We will promote neat handwriting with correct formation and spacing.
This term we will continue working on number, place value, time (both digital and analogue, and money. We will also be looking at data handling, fractions and continuing with simple, practical multiplication and division. We will practice number stories and bonds within 20 and work on the speed of our mental recall in maths, as well as using a variety of addition and subtraction strategies to find the correct answers.
In Science, we will be kicking this term off with learning about our senses and keeping healthy, before moving onto learning about materials and their properties. We will carry out simple scientific experiments and use the shapes of curiosity to record our observations and results.
In History/geography we will be learning about compass points, mapping and polar region explorers.
