Carry on reading together!
For English, the single most important thing that you can do to help your child progress, is to hear your child read. Good readers make good writers because they are exposed to a greater variety of vocabulary, syntax, grammar and style. When you listen to your child read, there are a number of things to remember:
In Maths we will be covering place value, addition, subtraction, division, times tables, number, shape, data handling, money, time and fractions. As well as covering these topics we will be carrying out speed times table checks and skills checks weekly. This will help the children to apply their knowledge and skills.
This will be following the Jigsaw theme of 'Work'. I will also be looking at the children's emotional wellbeing and settling into a new classroom and class.
Our art will be focused around our topic of the stone age and we will look to create our very own cave paintings, as well as designing our very own woolly mammoths and creating tools to help us survive in the stone age.
Our focus this term is the stone age, we will be looking at how people in this Era managed to live, looking at where they lived, how they survived, what they ate and so much more!
Music is taught by Miss Newton who will teach the class new songs, dances and how to use instruments.
We will be focusing on football during games this term, looking at how to effectively dribble and pass the ball and work as a team. In PE we will be focusing on Gymnastics, how to move effectively and complete their own sequence.
In R.E we are looking at Hinduism and the story of Diwali, looking at Rama and Sita and the meaning behind the story.
