Spring TERM IN THE LOWERS

In English we are looking the Anna Hibiscus stories written by

Atinuke         

 where the main character lives in Africa with her Canadian mother. We will be comparing the two continents- Africa with North America.  This will link to our topic of hot and cold places.  After half term we will be doing some non-fiction writing to link to our science unit.

We will also be continuing our work on grammar, spelling and doing some whole class reading using high quality texts. All children will continue to practise joined up handwriting. In phonics children will be learning letter sounds and blending for reading and writing using the Read, Write, Inc programme.

Maths this term will consist of money, and  fractions position and direction.

After half term we will be learning about animals in science. To link with this we will be going on a trip to the zoo.

LEARNING AT HOME

We love it when children continue to learn at home! You can use the Key Stage One Learning Platform to find maths, science, phonics and spellings activities and games. Please ensure that you keep on working with your children on reading, discussing books that your child has read, learn and apply spellings that are given and completing the homework. A variety of spelling activities will be provided as homework to support their application of spellings into their writing.

Every week there will be one piece of homework in homework books. This will be sent out on Thursdays and must be returned by the following Tuesday.

 

Please see our homework policy for further information.
