Spring Term - 2020
I hope you have all had a magical Christmas and a Happy New Year! I cannot believe we are already in our Spring Term 1. I am looking forward to another fantastic term.
This term we will be continuing with our class novel ‘Lost and Found’ by Oliver Jeffers. We will be writing instructions using imperative verbs, writing a non-chronological report about Antarctic animals and sequencing key events from the story.
We will be researching the Antarctic, looking at the differences in the climate and finding out about the animals that live there, especially one of our main characters in our novel – a penguin. Additionally, we will be creating igloos using papier-mache and a snowy diorama scene using a shoe box during our D&T lessons.
In maths, we will be learning about 2D and 3D shapes and recapping all the skills we have learnt during our Autumn Term such as place value, addition and subtraction and applying them to numbers to 20.
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 Tuesday Afternoon 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.
