Welcome New Penguins!
I hope you all had a wonderful summer break and are ready to start back at school.
This term our topic is ‘Growing’. We will read a variety of fiction and non-fiction books based around the story of ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ and other well-known fairy tales. Reading is very important and it would be great if you could support your child at home by reading at least three times a week. Everyone will be trying to read as many of the keywords as they can on their reading snakes in class.
In handwriting the focus is on letter formation, making sure all letters are formed correctly before moving on to beginning to join. We will continue learning the use of correct punctuation and using Fred Fingers and spelling rules whilst writing independently.
In Maths we are developing our knowledge of place value of numbers up to 50 and beyond, addition and subtraction with the numbers we know and the number bonds to ten and twenty. We will be continuing to learn our 2,5 and 10 times tables through fun games and using Times Table Rockstars. Logins will be sent out at the start of week 2.
In science we are finding out about seeds and plants; where they grow, the different types of plants, how they disperse their seeds and what each part of the plant is called alongside its function.
We are lucky to have PE with Coach Ash on a Monday and a session on a Friday so be prepared to work hard!
If you have any questions, please ask.
