Class One had a fantastic trip to Lanhydrock, the weather was glorious!
First they explored the grounds, searching for different leaves.
Then, they had lunch in the Servants room.
Next, they walked up to the top garden and went on a scavenger hunt! They especially liked finding horse chestnuts!
Finally, they collect leaves and made dinosaurs from them!
Welcome to a new year in Class One!
Every term I write an overview of what we will be completing within the term, this then gives you a better understanding when your child/children come home!
This term our topic is
about Dinosaurs and our question is- What happened to the dinosaurs?
Reception will begin learning phonics using letters and sounds with jolly phonics actions; they will cover S A T P I N first and begin to learn the first tricky words (no, go, to, I, the, into).They will also be bringing home reading books, with just pictures and then as their phonics develops books with CVC words (Consonant, Vowel, Consonant).
Year One’s will be going back over Phase 3 and 4 initially to make sure they have a concrete understanding of all the sounds and tricky words.
Year Two will be going back over Phase 5 and begin to look at Phase 6 but there will be more of a focus on Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar.
In Literacy we will be focusing on stories written by the same author in particular Ian Whybrow (Harry and the Dinosaurs author).
In Maths we will be covering place value and addition and subtraction.
Reception will be focusing on the numbers 1 to 5.
In PE the children will be doing archery; we also follow Go Noodle and complete a few routines each morning to get our brains ready to learn.
In ICT we will be accessing teach reading eggs/times table rockstars and year 1/2 will be learning about e-safety and using the internet to research.
Homework will be given out each Monday for Reception due in the following Monday and Year1/2 have a homework menu.
Year One/Two Spelling will take place everyday.
Please can Wildtribe gear be left in School, as we will need wellies and waterproofs for outdoor learning.
Children will be listened to on an individual basis at least once a week. If you can support them at home with both reading and spelling it really makes a huge difference!
If you have any resources that link to the topic or junk modelling, it would be gratefully appreciated.
