“Educating our children with the skills they need to live fullfilling lives.”

Autumn 1

 

Our topic this term is Superheroes... we are discussing our favourite superhero to encourage speaking and listening.  We are writing a list of our favourite superheroes and we are trying very hard to remember a capital letter for their name, finger spaces and to begin a new line.  We are reading Supertato, which the children are really enjoying! We are writing a sentence about Supertato using a capital letter to begin our sentence, a full stop to end our sentence and finger spaces between each word.

In Maths, we are trying hard to count forwards and backwards and we are trying to say a number that is one more and one less than a given number.  We are going to work out the number bonds to 5 and understand what number bonds are.  We are ordering numbers from 0-5, 0-10 and 0-20.

We are thinking about our 5 senses in Science and trying to identify which body part is linked to each sense. We will be focusing on one sense per session and exploring each sense in detail.

We have been identifying the human and physical features in Seaton.  We collected some leaves and conkers along the way, which we will go on to count those objects and see how many we collected altogether! 

Autumn 2

Our topic this term is Space... we have been learning about Neil Armstrong, we have discussed why he is famous and we have learned some interesting facts about him! We watched a special video showing us Neil Armstrong on the moon!  The children have been writing their facts into sentences using capital letters, full stops, finger spaces and conjunctions to join our sentences together.  We are also going to be focussing on rhyme, we are going to make rhyming strings and rhyming couplets.  In Maths, we are using addition and subtraction to derive number facts within 10 and 20.  We are looking in our environment to find 2D shapes and we are looking at the properties of 2D shapes.  We are trying very hard to count backwards from 20! We are focusing on light and dark in Science.  We are exploring the 'dark tent' which does have some light sources inside.  We are going to be designing, making and evaluating a space rocket in DT.

This term, we will be working hard practising our song for the Christmas play which we are excited about!

 

Spring 1

 

 

 Our topic this term is Traditional Tales, in particular The Gingerbread Man.  We are reading The Gingerbread Man and in Literacy we are describing The Gingerbread Man using adjectives and some friends are trying hard to use commas in a list.  We have been writing postcards to Mr and Mrs Baker on the computers, we designed our own stamp and created an address for The Gingerbread Man.  In Maths, we are writing addition and subtraction calculations, recognising coins and solving word problems.  In Science, we are exploring materials and finding out what some objects are made from and we are going to be describing the objects and we will go on to group the objects using properties.  We are sewing our very own gingerbread men and we are going to decorate them.  We are very excited to bake gingerbread men later on in the term! 

This term, we will celebrate Chinese New Year by completing many activities, such as designing and creating a Chinese kite, learning to say good morning in Chinese and we will write our name using Chinese symbols.
