Literacy and Numeracy

This term we will be continuing to support the children to improve their reading and writing through daily GGR sessions and weekly phonics sessions. We are having a huge push on handwriting and presentation, encouraging the children to join their letters to form cursive writing.

In maths and numeracy we are focusing on number, particularly place value. We are also moving on from simple times tables (10s, 5s and 2s) by using this knowledge to introduce division. We will also be exploring money (giving change) and units of measure such as time and standard units of weight, length and capacity.

 

 

Long-Term Inquiry

This term our long-term inquiry is ‘Ready, Set …Go!’. The central idea is ‘Forces and energy can work for and against me in my day to day life.’ We will be working towards building and racing our own Go Karts. If you have the knowledge or skills that could support us with our inquiry please let us know – We would love to welcome you into school to share your skills or help us build our go karts! Our physical activity will be following the HSBC ‘Ready, Set, Ride’ scheme which teaches pre-cycling skills and how to ride a balance bike and a pedal bike.

 

                                                 

 

Short-Term Inquiry

Our short-term inquiry this term is based around financial literacy. We will be exploring how to spend money to make money. We aim to introduce children to a budget and further develop their understanding of value.

PE : Wednesday 

 

PE is still taking place each week for your child but these sessions have been adapted in light of Covid-19. To make things easier and to reduce any risks please ask your child’s class teacher on what day they have PE and on that day you may send your child to school in their PE kit. As the months are getting cooler please think about sending them in a tracksuit with a t-shirt and sweatshirt that they can remove.
