Our Literacy learning will begin with two weeks focusing on poetry before moving on to non-fiction texts. We will be using our imaginations to explore and recreate our own free verse poems and continuing to build on our vocabulary. We will continue to build on and use our phonic knowledge to create our own sentences, stories and poems throughout this half-term. In Maths we will be consolidating our knowledge of 2, 5 and 10 times tables as well as solving practical problems relating to these. We will be focusing on ensuring we have mastered our fluency with numbers to 100. In RE we will be exploring different faith stories and sacred texts as well as the International section of our IPC topic. We are looking forward to lots of lovely Science experiments linking to our IPC topic and DT to create our own transport!
If there is anything you need to ask or find out then we are here to help so please contact the school to arrange a time to chat.
We look forward to working with you all.

In Murphy Class we always help each other and enjoy working together. We love learning outdoors and in our amazing tipi where we do stories, circle time and other activities. We like to get outside as much as we can and experience our environment.
Here are some photos of our fabulous learning!
