We are also practising Fantastic Walking when moving around the school
Our Maths learning focus
We will be extending our learning of place value in Year 1 and then moving into multiplication and division.
We will be learning how to share an amount into equal groups, use repeated addition and use arrays to support our understanding of multiplication. We will also be learning our multiplication tables 2,5, and 10s. We will also look at odd and even numbers.
Our English learning focus
We will be learning “The Gingerbread Man” and comparing this to the “Runaway Chapatti” which is a traditional story from another country. We will be writing our own journey story where we meet different characters, focusing on our expanded noun phases, punctuation, conjunctions and contractions. We will then be writing a newspaper report around the gingerbread man and have a great ‘hook’ to engage the children planned. Spy glasses at the ready!
Our Theme is...
This term our theme is “Around the World!” We will be celebrating Chinese new year and learning music and dances from around the world.
In Science we will be learning about materials and sorting them according to their properties. We will also look at seasonal changes of different places on the globe.
We have a DT week planned and we shall be making a product and be involved in “pitching” our ideas to the ‘Dragons’ in a ‘Dragon’s Den’ style finale.
We will be learning to use locational and directional language and use our coding skills to support this.
We would love it if you could read a range of traditional stories and bake some gingerbread men... or a village.
