Our Homework projects for Spring 1 are due in by Friday 4th February! I really hope you all enjoy being creative and discovering things about The Great Fire of London! :)
Welcome back Rabbit class! We hope you have had a lovely winter break and are ready for an exciting, jam-packed term!
In English we are exploring the book 'Paddington' by Michael Bond. We will be learning all about where Paddington is from, his appearance and how he ended up living with the Brown family. We will be learning to tell stories orally and writing our own postcards.
In our mathematics lessons we are revising our numbers to 20 by using number lines, exploring number bonds and using part-whole models. Going forward we will also look at numbers to 30 and even 50!
If you're looking for some extra learning, why not look out for door numbers - what is the largest number you can find? Can you remember what number Paddington lives at?
We have spent a lot of time this half term developing talk, reading stories and delivering our daily phonics program, as part of our teaching of reading.
We are pleased with how the children are progressing in learning to become a reader and in learning the phonic sounds. We are grateful for the support you give by reading with your child at home.
The children will now be bringing home a book they can begin to read fluently and the second book will be an instructional text that they may need more support with.
If you want to know more about our phonics programme - how it is organised and how you pronounce sounds, please follow the link below. We would recommend the video in particular, where you can hear a child saying each of the sounds in our phonics program.
We are very excited to start science again! We are going to be identifying parts of the body and what we use them for. We will recap our senses and take part in some exciting sessions exploring our senses in different ways.
- taste food
- identify interesting smells in pots
- touch different materials
- listening to sounds and identifying what they are
On Wednesday in Rabbit class we continue to do PHSE and Music. We have enjoyed learning about different styles of music and appraising them.
Our PE day this year will be on a Friday. The good news is that you can come in your school PE kit in the morning and stay in it all day. You will need to wear a plain white T-shirt and black jogging bottoms; you might need a black sweatshirt to keep you warm in the winter. You can wear black trainers or plimsolls.
- To minimise the risk of lost property, we ask that all clothing items are clearly labelled with a name, including PE kit.
- Please remember to send in a named water bottle every day, we know how important it is for children to stay hydrated.
- Thank you for providing book bags, please send them in every day with the reading books and reading record book
Best wishes from Miss Holloway
