We will be looking at architects this term with emphasis on Sir Christopher Wren; who rebuilt St Paul's Cathedral after the Great Fire of London.
In literacy we will be looking at a range of fairy tales and changing them to create our own. We will be developing our use of adjectives to describe characters and the setting. The children will also be looking at poetry and rhyming words.
In maths we are working from the new national curriculum and we are looking forward to developing our knowledge of time. The children will be learning to tell the time to the hour and half past. The children will also be learning about direction and we will link this to map work in Geography.
In science we will be looking at sound and light. In computing we will be learning about the world wide web. In P.E we will be developing our feilding and striking skills using the throwing and catching skills we developed last term.The children will also have indoor PE, continuing to develop a range of moves through dance and gymnastics.
Importantly, this term we will be continuing to develop our independence in our work and reflection. Please encourage your child to be independent with their choices at home and this will pay dividends in the classroom. I hope your child will have lots of fun and be happy and enthusiastic in their learning this term.
If you have any questions please don't hesitate to call in and see me after school or call the office to make an appointment.
Please keep checking back for updates.
Please read regularly with your child and help them to learn their tricky words and also comment in your child's reading diary each time you read with them. (At least 5 times per week)
Reading books will be changed every Monday and Thursday, as long as a comment has been made. Tricky words will be checked once through out the week, so please ensure these are kept in your child's book bag every day.
Homework will be sent home on a Friday. The homework will be an activity that the children will have been working towards that week.
