What are we learning about?
We are brightening up the classrooms with our new topic Let There Be Light! This half term we will asking and answering the following Big Questions:
Should we celebrate Bonfire Night? (History focus)
How do animals keep warm in winter?
Would you use lines or swirls when painting the stars in the night sky? (Art focus)
We have some exciting curriculum activities planned to help us answer these questions. On Monday 6th November we will be having our very own bonfire celebration complete with hot chocolate and campfire songs. This is weather dependant so the date may change at short notice. A big thank you to Mr Waters for helping with this and to Orchards Green for letting us use their land for this. Later in the term we will be visited by the Raptor Foundation and the Space Dome. A separate letter will be sent with more details in the near future.
In maths, we will be learning more about number, addition and subtraction. We will also introduce multiplication and division. We will be learning about time and money, it would be great if you could practise o’clock and half past at home and talk about coins when you are out shopping.
In English, we are learning about similes and using them to write firework poetry. We will also be writing stories based on Owl Babies and the Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark and non-chronological reports about owls.
PE will be on Thursday mornings and Show and Share on Fridays. We will share a theme for ‘Show and Share’ in the newsletter each week. Please ensure your child has a PE kit suitable for outdoor games in this colder weather, thank you. Music sessions with Mrs Allen will continue on a Friday afternoon.
