This term our topic is Blast Off!
To launch our topic we are very excited to be visiting Magna on the 19th September. The children will be busy learning about the ‘Space Race’ and other astronaut missions. We will be looking at and using similar techniques to the ones used by Vincent Van Gough in the Starry Night in Art. In Science they will be looking at materials and the effect of gravity on them.
In English we will use film, picture books and real life events to inspire writing for different purposes including reports, instructions and stories linking our writing to our topic whenever possible.
In Maths we will continue to learn strategies for the four main operations and use them with increasing confidence and independence.
Class 1 information
Reading - To promote independence the children are encouraged to change their reading book when they are ready each week. To support your child at home we encourage that they read with you for a minimum of 3 times a week. Each week we will look in their home diary and if they have read 3 times at home they will get a remarkable reader sticker on the class chart and in their diaries.
PE - Please make sure that your child has their PE kit in school for the entire week as our PE days may sometimes have to change. Children will need an indoor and outdoor kit.
Homework - Each week on a Friday the children will be set a Learning Log Task which needs to be handed in on the following Tuesday for marking. The task may be either be a Maths, English or topic based and should be an activity that your child can achieve as we will have discussed it during the week.
Marvellous Me - This year we will be continuing to send you good news through our Marvellous Me app. If you have not yet registered for this please see a member of the team and we will be able to provide you with your child’s details.
