We have rocketed into a new Learning Theme this term: SPACE. We will let the interests of the children determine where their learning journey will take them over the course of the next few weeks.
Our Big Question is: WHAT IS SPACE?
UNDERSTANDING THE WORLD
The children will be developing their understanding of space by thinking about what is in, and what is not in space. We will draw and label pictures about what we think space looks like and explain why we think so.
Key Vocabulary: Space, moon, planet, rocket, satellite, stars, sun, asteroids.
KW- The World:
To talk about the features of their own immediate environment and how environments might vary from one another.
Answering ‘how’ and ‘why’ questions about their experiences and in response to stories or events.
ART & DESIGN
We will work together in a group to create a space picture collage, using a variety of media and materials to complete our picture. We will also follow our interests to make space related objects such as telescopes, rockets or satellites. We will plan how we will make our model and what materials and tools we will need before setting out on our project.
Children use what they have learnt about media and materials in original ways, thinking about uses and purposes.
They represent their own ideas, thoughts and feelings through, art,
They safely use and explore a variety of materials, tools and techniques, experimenting with colour, design, texture, form and function.
Puffer fish- We will learn new sounds oy (as in boy) and ir (as in girl). We will read new tricky words people, house and about. We will learn how to spell tricky words have and like. We will continue to practise applying all the sounds we have learned so far.
Sharks- We will continue to work through Phase 4. During this Phase the children will practise recognition and recall of Phase 2 and 3 graphemes, as well as reading and spelling CVC words (e.g. big, cat, fit). They will practise reading and spelling CVCC words (e.g. huff, hush, bush) and will practise reading the tricky words. They will also practise spelling the tricky words as well as reading and writing sentences.
Octopus- We will have a review week of all our new sounds. We will be using the sounds to write different words and match them to the right pictures.
Jellyfish- We will spend the first week back focusing on being able to read and write the phase 3 tricky words. We will also practise 'quick write’, being able to write CVC and CCVC words quickly and independently making sure our letters are written correctly, especially b, d, p and g.
Starfish- We will focus on reviewing all the sounds taught and using them to read and write CVC and CVCC Words, for example; hat, top, duck, hill. We will work in supported groups each day to practise different phonic skills.
We will introduce simple subtraction- practising counting back and finding the number that is one less than a given number using groups of objects and a number line to help us.
Key Vocabulary: count back, one less, how many, take away, subtract.
Children count reliably with numbers from 1 to 20, place them in order and say which number is one less than a given number.
This week the children will be talking about the changes in spring time and look into the life cycle of butterfly.We will introduce a story called “Mao mao chong bian xing ji” (毛毛虫变形记) We also will learn a new song which is called “ Mao mao chong biancheng hu die la”(毛毛虫变成蝴蝶啦)
