Photographs from our visit to St Ives - 20th July, 2021
Our focus text is Beegu. We will be looking at character development and story setting. There will be lots of writing opportunities such as letters, instructions, descriptions and poetry. Our focus will continue to be sentence structure, spelling and punctuation.
This half term we will be focusing addition and subtraction within 20 and learning number facts to improve our fluency. In provision we will be measuring weight and capacity.
In Science we will continue our topic on plants. We will be observing the changes as our sunflowers grow. We will be learning about trees - the different parts, the difference between deciduous and evergreen trees and how deciduous trees change throughout the year.
Our history topic continues to be 'Explorers' and we will be learning all about Neil Armstrong. We will be comparing his achievements to those of Christopher Columbus.
Our PE day is Friday - the children will need to come to school in black jogging bottoms and trainers that are suitable for outdoor PE. Please wear a school t-shirt and jumper.
On all other days the children need to wear practical black shoes, preferably black trainers, as we will be spending more time on the running track and outdoors in general.
New spellings will be put in planners every Wednesday to be tested on the following Tuesday.
- Reading book
Please encourage your child to read every day - this doesn't have to be the whole book, just a few pages each day. You will have the book for a week - please read it more than once for confidence and fluency. Ask your child questions about what they have read to check their understanding. Reading books will be changed every Friday.
New homework will be put on Teams and emailed weekly on Wednesdays to be completed for the following Tuesday.
DON'T FORGET YOUR WATER BOTTLES!!
