LEARNING THEME

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 us over the course of the next few weeks. This week is all about planning for a trip into space… What would you take with you? Why?

Our Big Question is: How do we prepare for a journey into space?

UNDERSTANDING THE WORLD

The children will be developing their understanding of what they already know about space; thinking about what they would need for a journey there. Children will be encouraged to plan what they might need to take with them – what would you wear? What food would you need? How physically fit would you need to be?

Key Vocabulary:  Space, moon, planet, rocket, satellite, stars, sun, asteroids, journey, spacesuit, helmet, boots, food, exercise, plan, before you set off.

Development Outcomes

KW- The World:

  • To talk about the features of their own immediate environment and how environments might vary from one another.

CL- Understanding:

  • Answering ‘how’ and ‘why’ questions about their experiences and in response to stories or events.

PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT

The children will take part in simple movement activities imagining that they are getting ready for a journey to space. They will be encouraged to listen carefully and move according to the music, incorporating simple actions into their routines. They can think about the different ways their bodies might move in space and share their creative ideas with their friends.

Development Outcomes

Moving and Handling:

  • Children show good control and co-ordination in large and small movements.
  • They move confidently in a range of ways, safely negotiating space.

PHONICS

Puffer fish- We will learn the new sounds ue (as in clue) and aw (as in paw). We will practise reading and spelling our tricky and high frequency words and we will apply these words in sentences.

Sharks – We will begin Phase 5, practising recognition and recall of Phase 2, 3 and 4 graphemes as well as learning the new graphemes ay (pay, say), ou (loud, shout),  ie (pie, tie)  and ea (meal, seat) .  We will practise reading and spelling words with adjacent consonants and words with newly learned graphemes.  We will also practise reading and spelling polysyllabic words.

Octopus- We will be practising our writing this week, using diagraphs.  We will also be writing tricky words in sentences as well as spotting tricky words in different stories.

Jellyfish- We will focus on writing CCVC (e.g shop) and CVCC (e.g. back) words using the correct sounds and letter formation. We will also practise reading and writing phase 2 and 3 tricky words.

Starfish- We will continue to practise blending and segmenting  all single sounds through small group games. We will look at the phase 2 tricky words and key words and practise finding them in simple captions.

MATHS

We will recap counting back from 20 to 0 and finding the number that is one less than a given number using groups of objects and a number line. We will introduce the idea of subtraction and create simple subtraction number stories to help us solve subtraction problems e.g. ‘I had 3 torches in my bag. I lost one, I now have 2 torches in my bag’ 3 – 1 = 2.

Key Vocabulary: count back, one less, how many, take away, subtract, subtraction

Development Outcomes:

Numbers:

Children count reliably with numbers from 1 to 20, place them in order and say which number is one less than a given number.

MANDARIN

This week the children will be recapping the vocabulary of spring and we  will introduce the lifecycle of a  frog. Please check the following link  http://kids.beva.com/62/124?from=bao. We will also introduce a song which is called “Five little frogs”( 五只小青蛙)

Key Vocabulary: tadpoles 小蝌蚪  (xiao ke dou)  frog   青蛙   (qing wa)   pound池塘  (chi tang)  turtoise 乌龟(wu gui)  crab 螃蟹 (pang xie)   lotus  荷花(he hua)
