We have an exciting term ahead of us

This year we are learning how to be super readers and writers! Our topic this spring term in Literacy is Julia Donaldson. We will be looking at her fiction stories to help us write our own fantasy story focusing on using adjectives, conjunctions, exclamation and question marks to make our writing more interesting.

In maths we will be looking at picture graphs. We will then move on to learning our two, five and ten times tables to help us add and subtract numbers to 40.Keep practising your number bonds to 20 and your times tables. Sing our songs to help you remember!

During our topic lessons we have been learning about physical and human features in the United Kingdom. We have learnt a song about the seven continents and five oceans to help us understand planet earth. In D.T we have been making a spaceship moon car. We will then be moving on to learn about Christianity. Reverend Brae will be conducting a Baptism to help us learn all about our Christian faith.

In science we will be exploring the outdoors to look at everyday materials. We will be looking at the properties of different materials and looking why objects have been made using these materials. We will also be carrying out an investigation to find out how materials can be changed by squashing, twisting, bending and stretching them.

Computing- In computing we will be making our own audio books. We have planned what we would like to include in our books. We have looked at different sound effects and different types of audio books to help us with our planning.

RE trip to the Church

Thank you to Reverend Brae for inviting us into his church and conducting a mini baptism for our baby doll. After learning about the Christian ceremony of Baptism in Religious Education, the children got to see in real life how a baptism is conducting in a Church and understand the messages and reasons for having a Baptism.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Welcome back to Spring term 1.

 

Literacy

This term we will be looking at the author Anthony Browne and his writing style. We will be spending time focusing on the story The Gorilla.

 

We will also spend some time learning how to write a recount/letter.

Who could you write a letter to?

Do you write letters to anyone?

Have you ever received a letter?

 

 

 

 Maths

This term we are learning about different units of measure. This involves looking at cm, m, g and kg and identifying what apparatus we will need to use. We will spend time learning how to read a scale at various intervals in order for us to determine the weight of a range of items.

 

We are also learning our 3 and 4 times tables. Any extra practise at home would be brilliant!

 

This term we have started using Times Tables Rockstars- please use your login details to play at home and increase your rock star status! These details are on the letter and stuck in the front of your reading diary.
