Have a lovely holiday, relax, celebrate, stay warm, happy and healthy. Merry Christmas from us all.
- Tuesday 9th January 2018 – first day of term.
In Literacy we will begin a two week unit on non-fiction, specifically fact files. Our topic this term will focus on different geographical locations. We will discuss and sort facts based on Antarctica and we will then learn how to place these facts in to simple sentences.
Non-fiction, fiction, true, false, fact, sentence
In Maths we will return to number bonds within 10 and 20. We will also recap addition and subtraction sentences. There will be a focus on children using resources within the classroom to support them in answering questions with independence, such as number lines and number squares.
Addition, subtraction, add, take-away, number bonds
Our theme across the coming weeks is ‘Around the World in 80 days’. We will venture to locations far and wide as we look to develop knowledge of where different locations are on a map, their key features such as climate, population and traditions. Our continent focus this week is; Antarctica.
Journey, World, map, location, geography, place
COMPUTER PROGRAMMING AND DIGITAL LITERACY
We return to coding for the coming weeks. The children will now look at inputting information with an increased independence. Within the unit the children will be looking at the developing the movement of an object operated from the instructions that they decide.
Coding, code, input, directions, buttons
This term our new PSHCE / well-being program will begin. The first core value covered is collaboration. This is the ability to work constructively with others, and children will learn to negotiate, to resolve conflicts, and to support agreed solutions. In doing so, they will strengthen their sense of teamwork and realize where they lack certain skills; which they can later hone.
Collaboration, groups, teamwork, skills
