This term we will be focusing on identifying odd and even numbers to 100 and being able to sequencing numbers. We will continue to improve our mental recall of number facts (Learn Its) at speed. This will provide us with knowledge we can transfer between the different areas of Maths. We will also be looking at measurement (capacity, length and weight).
This term we will be focusing on selecting key information and identifying the main events of text. We will complete a variety of reading tasks that are linked to our individual reading books, which will extend and develop reading fluency.
We will be focusing on using VCOP (Vocabulary, Connectives, Openers, Punctuation) to develop our writing skills. We will transfer our knowledge of VCOP into writing recounts and imaginative pieces linked to our Under the Sea topic.
We will start by looking at blends and phonemes. We will also be working on a list of common words throughout the term.
Health and Wellbeing
In the first session of the week we will look at ways we can move and shapes we can create with our bodies. In the second session of the week we will apply this knowledge to games and circuits.
Also see Miss Cunningham’s plans for Health and Wellbeing.
Our topic is Under the Sea.
We will take part in science experiments and learn about sea creatures, create art work, do written work, makes links between topic and maths, and learn about water safety in health and wellbeing. We will learn about oceans around the world, pollution and how we can take care of the environment around us in social studies.
If your child has anything of interest that relates to the topic, that they would like to show the class, I would be happy for them to bring it in.
