Welcome to Class One. Mrs Woolley, Mrs Clacy and I are very excited for this half term.
Below is what we will be learning about...
Our topic this half term is 'The Rainbow Fish'
In Literacy, we will be basing our writing around our topic. We will be writing using a variety of styles including, lists, captions, and stories. I cannot stress how important it is for the children to be reading and practising their phonics at home.
In Maths, the children will be building on their work, continuing to practise accurate counting, sequencing of numbers, adding up and taking away. They will also be learning about money, the value of coins and how to give change.
This half term in Science we are studying animals. We will be looking at the different parts of the body and the functions that they perform. We will also be learning about the different classifications of animals that there are and what characteristics animals need in order to be classified in a certain category.
Our topic work will all be based around the ‘Rainbow Fish’ theme. Our Art work will be based on ocean pictures, how we create them by mixing different colours and we will then evaluate our finished piece. In Geography, we will be locating the oceans and looking at where different animals live.
For PE, we will be focusing on gymnastics using both the floor and wall apparatus. Please make sure that your child has their full PE kit in school.
