Class Information

What are we learning this term?

Book week, followed by "Marvellous Machines!!"

This term we will be starting the term with book week and will be using the story of the "Three Little Pigs" as a basis for our classroom learning during the week..  We will then be moving onto our new theme for the term, "Marvellous Machines". This is the children's choice and they are keen to learn about a variety of vehicles and appliances, both inside and out!!  This will include several stories related to the theme, such as "The train ride", "The naughty bus" and "Rosie Revere, engineer".  In worship we will be thinking about forgiving others and during our class RE circle times we will be considering events in the Bible leading up to Easter and the importance of the cross.

We will be continuing to encourage the children to extend their own personal goals and learning, alongside teaching them the key skills and knowledge in Maths, Writing and Reading.  They will be consolidating their number knowledge and will begin to add and subtract numbers within 10.  They will learn their number bonds to 10.  In phonics they will continue to become more proficient at blending and sounding out when reading and will be learning the tricky words, no/go/was/to/saw The children should now be writing their names confidently and using a comfortable pencil grip, they should be controlling their pencil, pen or brush, forming most letter shapes correctly.  In class we will be practising writing the 'zig-zag letter family'.

We have already sent home your child's phonic assessment.  We have also completed the Maths assessment- we will notify you if your child needs to work on anything at home.  Please continue to reinforce and practise at home with your child- it makes a HUGE difference to their understanding at school, now and in the coming terms.
