Our  school year 2018-19

 

Last half term our class readers were:

The Three Little Pigs

Journey by Aaron Becker

We’re going on an Egg Hunt

We really enjoyed reading these texts. We wrote stories, letters, wanted posters and newspaper reports. We also wrote a non-fiction leaflet to link to our topic on India. We used our developing research skills to find information to use in our writing. The children produced some amazing descriptive pieces. We are really proud of the children and how creative they are becoming with their writing.

 

Science

This half term we have been learning about materials. We have been carrying out lots of scientific investigations and experiments to find the best material to build a house with and to make clothes with. We have also been looking at what makes a good quality paper and what makes a good waterproof material.

Maths

In maths this half term we have been looking at money, addition, subtraction, place value, capacity and multiplication. The children have really developed their basic maths skills to start working on higher level questions. We are really impressed with how hard the children are working in maths and how quickly their skills are improving.

Phonics

The children are continuing to try really hard in phonics and all groups are working on RWI set two sounds and above. The children are becoming confident readers and spellers. We have groups working on a range of different coloured book bands, seeing a variety of texts. Some of the books we have looked at this half term are:

topic

This half term we have been learning all about India. We have been learning about changing climate and weather around the world. We have created rangoli patterns, learnt about Holi day and experienced going on an aeroplane to India with a flight simulator. We also had an Indian dancer come into school to do some work with us.
