Message from the teachers:
Welcome back after the Christmas break. We would like to say an enormous thankyou for the kind words, cards and presents we received. They were beautiful!
This term we will be inviting parents in to our Dinosaur presentation - we will share more infomration via letter or Class Dojo.
We cannot wait to begin our new term.
This term's learning:
During our grammar work we will be learning about apostrophe's for contracted words e.g. don't and for possessive e.g. Mrs Smith's shoes were untied. To develop our story writing, the children will be learning about different sentence types e.g. exclamation, question, commands and statements.
Our first Literacy unit is Letters and then we begin learning about Fairy Tales this term.
The children be learning about the features of these two different text types. They will read a variety of letters and tales and will use these to help them create their own.
This term we will be continuing to investigate 2D and 3D shapes, identifying, sorting and grouping shapes. The children will be using the language corner/vertices, edge, face to talk about 3D shapes - cuboid, cube, sphere, cylinder, cone and pyramid. They will also hunt for circle, square, quadrilateral, rectangle, hexagon, pentagon and triangle shapes within the environment.
We are continuing our work on addition and subtraction and we will begin to look at simple multiplication in relation to the 2, 5 and 10 times tables.
As well as this, the children will investigate time - o'clock, half past and some will look at quarter to and quarter past.
We love Dinosaurs! This term we will be learning about dinosaurs. The children will be investigating the past using books, the internet, fact sheets and posters. They'll create timelines and fact cards which they will be encourage to create into a poster, which will be presented to the whole class.
As well as this, the children will be creating junk models, clay models and using their art skills to make skeletons of dinosaurs.
