This term we will begin by focusing on recounts for two weeks. We will be learning all about what features a recount needs and writing our own recounts. We will also be recounting some of our favourite stories! After that, we will have four weeks looking at traditional tales. This is a fantastic topic full of exciting activities such as listening to and sharing traditional tales, acting out well known traditional tales and writing our own stories in the style of a traditional tale.
This term in Maths our topic is place value. We will be focusing on counting objects to 100, reading and writing numbers to 100 in numerals and words, understanding the value of 10s and 1s, using a place value chart, comparing and ordering numbers and objects, counting in 2s,3s,5s and 10s.
Please keep up with practising the half termly KIRFS. The first set will sent home shortly.
Our focus this year is to learn the 2, 3, 5 and 10 times table and if you could practise these at home that would be great. We will soon begin learning the 3 times table too and have been using some great YouTube videos by Percy Parker to help us. You might want to take a look at these at home to help with practising these times tables. We are also using the conker maths website which has a lot great resources to support your child in developing their number skills. http://www.conkermaths.org/cmweb.nsf/products/conkerkirfs.html
Our topic this term is 'Living things and their habitats'. We will be learning all about food chains, habitats and what makes things alive. Hopefully (weather providing), we will have lots of opportunities to go outside this term during our topic.
This term our topic is e-safetly so we will be learning all about how to stay safe online. It would be great if you could talk to your child about what they are learning about in computing so that you can reinforce with your child how important it is to be safe online.
This term we are looking at symbols. We will be thinking about why we have symbols and what they represent. We will then move on to look at religious symbols and what they mean.
This term our PE slot is on a Tuesday and a Thursday and we are looking at gymnastics and games. The children will be doing games with Miss Clark on a Tuesday and gymnastics with Miss Russell on a Thursday.
Our topic this term is houses and homes. We will be learning about different types of houses, houses from the past and houses in other countries. We will be linking art activities to our topic too. Our topic this year will also be linked to the activities we do during our Forest School afternoon. This will take place during the last week of each half term.
