The Hub Learning Leaflet
Information for Parents
Term 3 January to April 2016
This term we are concentrating on continuing to build our knowledge of number bonds up to 10, up to 20 , up to 100 and beyond 100.
Some of our groups will be concentrating on subtracting with exchanging.
Another group will be using their times table knowledge to learn about division.
Our practical Maths will be concentrating on measurement, focussing on weight initially and then centimetres and metres thereafter.
This term all the reading groups will continue to build confidence in reading aloud and tackling unfamiliar words.
We will be looking at how to find information from the stories we have read which will help answer set questions. This will help to develop understanding of what they have read.
In writing we will continue to build on our knowledge of VCOP and work on sentence development.
We will further enhance our knowledge of phonics, covering blends and some of the common words. The spelling sounds will be covered over two week blocks to allow the children to consolidate what they have learned.
Health and Wellbeing
This term we will be exploring a range of emotions and we will discuss how they make us feel. We are looking at friendships and cooperation; how they make us feel and what we can do when faced with a challenging situation. Controlling our emotions and the strategies to help us cope when they go wrong, will also be explored.
Gross motors will also be concentrating on how to control our body movements. This term we will be balancing in a variety of different ways. (Changing parts of the body to balance with and moving in a variety of different ways again using different parts of the body)
Some of the children will be learning all about space and planets. We will cover space travel as well as looking at the order of the planets. They are even helping to build a space station in the hub!
All hub children will continue with music on a Wednesday afternoon and we have some new tunes to learn!
