Form One’s letter writing. Yet again Form One have amazed us with their skills. This week we have looked at the features of a letter. We discussed the layout, the words used and the purpose of an address. As a class we planned a letter to Julia Donaldson before the children had a go at writing their own. We were so delighted with the finished pieces that we will be posting them to Julia Donaldson, we are keeping our fingers and toes crossed that she replies.

 

 

Our fabulous portraits. We started the lesson by looking carefully in mirror and exploring our facial features. There was lots of poking and squidging! We discussed how our features looked, is our nose really a traingle or do our cheeks really have pink, round circles? In the morning we practised  drawing our features before moving onto sketching and painting in the afternoon. We looked at brush control and using different size brushes for different lines. Mrs Houseman and Miss Johnson were so pleased with the results that they are now displayed on the board outside our classroom.

THIS TERM'S TOPICS:

In Literacy we will be looking at connectives and how we can use these to make our writing interesting. We will continue to work on punctuating sentences and developing our handwriting. Our genres for this half term will be ‘Stories by Julia Donaldson’ and ‘Information texts.’ Through these topics we will develop our understanding of characters, story writing and the structure of information texts.

In Numeracy we will continue to develop our understanding of multiplication and division. Children will use their understanding of place value to add and subtract two and three digit numbers. By half term children will feel more confident completing column subtraction with borrowing and will be revisiting previously taught methods to ensure a sound understanding.

As Scientists we will be looking at materials and their properties. We will plan and carry out a number of experiments and use our understanding of adjectives to describe materials.

As Historians we will be studying Ancient Egypt. The unit will begin by learning about where Egypt is and facts about daily life in Ancient Egypt. We will then move onto studying mummification, which is always popular with children! Children will then explore the pyramids and hieroglyphics in addition to gods and goddesses.

As Creative Technicians we will be studying Healthy Eating. Through this topic the children will learn more about the different food groups and understand why a balanced diet is important.

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 understanding of the language and our pronunciation.
