Mathematics and Numeracy:
In this area of learning we will be completing mathematics and numeracy lessons through the week, as well as daily CLIC sessions. Every Friday we have Big Maths tests where we try to beat the previous week’s score. In our maths lessons we will be further developing our mathematics skills of using number bonds and place value to add and subtract. We are also working hard to remember multiplication facts as well.
Languages, Literacy and Communication:
As a storytelling school, we will continue to deliver many of our literacy skills through story. We are starting this term with Three Billy Goats Gruff, and we will be working towards writing our own version of the traditional tale. We will develop our spelling, punctuation and grammar skills too!
We read daily in guided group reading sessions and we are thrilled with the progress made across the class.
Our topic in Welsh and Spanish is the weather (Y Tywydd or El Tiempo).
We will be learning lots of new Welsh and Spanish vocabulary to make us brilliant bilingual speakers! Rydyn ni'n cyffrous i dysgu!
Inquiry Based Learning:
We have recently started our newest inquiry, an Expressive Arts project called ‘Once Upon a Time’. We will be learning how to tell traditional stories through dance. Firstly, we will start to understand what is a traditional story and its features and then we will begin to create movements to express the story. We hope to present our final dances to you next half term when they are ready.
Homework & Online Learning
Homework will be set weekly on Google Classroom on Thursdays to be returned the following Tuesday for marking. Please let us know if you need support logging in!
Other online tools you may want to use at home are:
Please send £1 every Monday for your child's healthy snack for the week. We will provide a choice of fruit or vegetable every day. Send your child to school with a reusable water bottle.
Please ensure packed lunches are healthy. We are a nut free school so please do not pack any form of nuts (including nut spreads like Nutella).
