How does that building stay up?
We will use our knowledge of our own homes and buildings in our local environment to start learning about building structures. We will explore the properties of different materials and how to use them best in our work. We will need to write lists, make maps and write letters to find information.
Building will help us use all of our mathematical skills. We will need to recognise numbers on the tape measures, weigh products and measure to see which items are longer, taller or shorter. We will continue our focus on addition and subtraction.
The three little pigs might come and pay us a visit.
This term we will continue our theme
Do Dragons Exist?
We will start to learn our new traditional tale - Jack and the Beanstalk. We will be making story maps and now that we are starting to do loads of writing we will be able to write some words, captions and even sentences about Jack's adventures. When reading we are going to focus on finding those tricky words, diagraphs and trigraphs.
Now that we have started adding - we can't be stopped! We are adding everything we see and practicing using all of that difficult language (add, plus, equals, same, more, less and all together).
We look forward to another exciting term.
Welcome to the New Year and the start of a new term! Our main topic for the next two terms is called..
We have already learnt our first Phonemes:
s a t p i n
With these sounds we have been reading words like:
sit tip sat tap in it is and many more.
There are lots of online resources you can access from home to help practice your phonemes.
We have been counting, looking at shapes and finding out if we are taller or shorter than things around school. We have also been visiting Ten Town where we have finding out what the numbers look like.
We are so looking forward to the term ahead. Starting school should be fun so this term we will be making new friends, thinking about how we treat our friends and learning how to take care of our classroom. We will be learning to listen and pay attention during activities — which can be very tricky!
We will be building on our knowledge of ourselves, talking about our families and sharing what is special about each one of us.
