Spring Term - 2020
Hello everyone and welcome back! I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas break and looking forward to the new term ahead. I am sure the children will be excited to share what they have done over the Christmas holidays and they will have opportunities to do so in our English learning. The children will write a diary entry about their favourite part of Christmas and their favourite toy. The children will be introduced to their new class novel ‘Paddington Bear’ and will write about the journeys that Paddington takes in the story. In mathematics, the children will represent and use number bonds and related facts within 20. They will add and subtract and explore calculation strategies within 20. The children will begin a new science topic by looking at seasonal changes across the four seasons. They will observe and describe weather associated with the seasons and how day length varies. In art, the children will be excited to start our new topic ‘pop art’ and lots more fun art and design activities related to Paddington Bear.
We are looking forward to a fantastic term of amazing new learning!
Your child will receive times tables and spellings practice sheets every Friday which need to be completed by the following Thursday. They are also expected to read at least 5 times a week which needs to be recorded in their reading records by an adult. This is also expected during school holidays too. They have PE on a Monday morning so are expected to bring their PE kits into school on a Monday and it will be sent home on a Friday. The children who complete all of these will gain a raffle ticket for the chance to win a prize as part of our whole school ‘In it to win it’ challenge. Come on 1/2H, we can do it!
