We hope you all had a wonderful summer and looking forward to your first classroom in the main building!

Please try to support us with independence by encouraging the children to come in on their own and put their own bags and coats into their lockers.

 

Literacy

In literacy we will be looking at the two books; the day the crayons quit and the day the crayons came home.

From these we will be reading through step by step and the children will be given opportunity to predict responses and talk about emotions of the characters. We will also be writing letters between Duncan and the crayons. En2/ 3.3 

In addition to this we will be learning all about different types of punctuation and understanding when they are needed. En2/ 3.4 En2/ 2.2

 

Maths

In numeracy we will be covering a range of topics including: place value MA2/ 2.1, number bonds to 100, number sequences, partitioning numbers and halving and doubling.

Later in the term we will move on to addition and subtraction understanding that they are inverse. Ma2/2.2 We will also be working on our number bonds to 20 and 100. Ma2/2.2c

 

Science

Our first science topic will be animals including humans. In this topic we will look at the needs of animals and humans sc2/2.3. We will also notice that animals including humans can have babies and that they grow up to become adults. Sc2/2.3a

 

Our second topic will be looking at materials and their uses including building materials, tools, and clothing. We will be learning about properties of materials, investigating stretchiness, effects of heat and how water can be changed. SC2/ 3.1

 

Topic

Our firs topic is ‘Where is all the evidence?’ This topic will focus on history mainly looking at Ancient Egypt and the Egyptians. Hi1/1.1/2 We will be using map skills to see if we can locate the UK and Egypt and then we will be comparing both places. Ge1/ 1.1a/b We will also be looking at the pyramids, clothing, hieroglyphics, pharaohs, and the lifestyle. Later in the term we will be visiting Chester Zoo which will link in with looking at Egyptian cats then moving onto the big cats we will see in the zoo and describing them.

Parental Help

Parental help is always valued and helps the children access a wider range of activities. If you would like to help please come in and let us know how you would like to be involved, whether you would like a regular slot or just to come in on art days or for special events, and we will try our best to accommodate you. As part of our safeguarding review all regular helpers will need to submit a DBS check.

 

Any questions, worries or concerns please don’t hesitate to ask
