Welcome back and Happy New Year!
Our topic for this term is "Skin, Fur and Feathers". We will be thinking about ourselves and other animals, how they live and what they eat. We will also be investigating some of the characteristics of different varieties of animals.
In Literacy, we have read "The Owl who was afraid of the Dark" and have been thinking and writing about all of the wonderful and exciting things that Plop, the baby owl, gets up to at night!
In Numeracy, we have started our investigation of half and quarter of shapes and numbers, and identification of 2D shapes. Counting in 5's and 10's and counting up to 100 is also part of our lesson each day.
We have had a super start to this term, busy and working hard.
Our topic for this half term is 'Pole to Pole'. Our literacy work will be based around the story 'Poles Apart'. We will also be using non-fiction books to help us find out about the animals in the story. We will be writing stories, poems, postcards and lists, as well as investigating the features of non-fiction texts and doing our own information writing.
'Poles Apart' will also be linked to our Geography curriculum, through fact finding about places in the story and locating places on a world map.
During Art sessions, the children will work in groups to produce an igloo out of papier mache, which they will then paint in tones of a colour to demonstrate their understanding of colour mixing.
In Numeracy, we will continue with our learning and understanding of numbers, shapes, space and measure and telling the time.
In Science, we will continue with our investigation of 'Everyday Materials', moving onto finding out about 'Light'.
Add to this the Christmas fair, pantomime, parties and Nativity plays, it is going to be a very busy half term!
