Our topic this half term is ‘Land Ahoy’. We will be learning about the lives of some famous people, such as Grace Darling, Captain Cook and some famous pirates. We will learn how to read and make maps – hopefully ending our topic by dressing up and following a special kind of map!
English will involve lots of stories involving pirates and lighthouses. The children will write stories, recounts and poetry over the next few weeks. Grammar, spelling and punctuation, along with daily phonics lessons, will feature largely in our English lessons.
Our first R.E. topic is The Chosen People. We will learn about Abraham, Moses and Daniel as special people of God and how God chooses us all.
In Maths we continue to develop our knowledge of numbers and different ways of adding and subtracting. We are learning to count in 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s – and to learn our 2, 5 and 10 times tables.
Our first Science topic is all about the uses of everyday materials. The children will look at a variety of objects, thinking about the materials they are made of and why? What properties do the materials have?
Spellings, reading books and homework will be sent home each week. Please support and encourage your child in completing and returning any tasks set, and let me know if there are any problems with completing any of the work sent home.
Thank you for your support. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
