SPOTLIGHT ON...

Save
Isabella, Isaac and Rafi for their excellent working out in maths this week. We have been learning about money and giving change and these three impressed us with their enthusiasm and quick working out.

THIS TERM'S TOPICS:

In Literacy we will be looking at punctuating sentences with a range of punctuation including capital letters, full stops, exclamation marks and question marks. Our writing genres this half term will be ‘Stories with a familiar setting’ and ‘ Letters’. Through these topics we will develop our ability to describe characters and scenes using adjectives and write a story with a clear beginning, middle and end.

In Numeracy we will be focusing on multiplication and division, beginning with the 2,5 and 10 times tables. In addition to this we will be learning to recognise and describe the properties of 2D and 3D shapes and recognising half and quarter of numbers and shapes. We will continue to develop these further through word problems and real life situations.

As Scientists, we will be studying Materials. We will learn to describe materials and to sort them based on their properties. We will complete a number of experiments and will learn about fair testing and working as a team. In addition to this we will look at recycling materials and why this is important.

As Historians we will studying Toys From The Past. Through this topic children will be working with their parents and other family members to take a trip down memory lane to discover how toys have changed over time. In class we will be designing new toys for Santa and looking at the top selling Christmas toys from the last 30 years.

As Creative Technicians we will be celebrating winter by looking at bonfire night, Halloween and advent. We will be continuing to explore different media and manipulating materials for effect.

As Athletes we will continue to develop our fine motor skills and sporting skills through different team games.

As Linguists we will continue to develop our vocabulary through the topic ‘ The Classroom’.
