Welcome to Class 1I
During this half term, we will be learning about trees and plants that grow in our school grounds. As part of our science, we will learn to name parts of trees and flowering plants and will be making movies about our learning. We will try to identify deciduous and evergreen trees by being detectives.
In music, we will explore sounds which we will link to the weather and we will learn about the change in pitch in sounds, linked to our changing seasons.
In geography, we will also learn about weather and we will be learning about hot and cold climates and the North and South Pole. We will learn about the countries of The United Kingdom and our capital city. This will link to one of our story books – The Queen’s Knickers.
In art, we will be learning techniques for printing and will also learn about the work of Andy Warhol, who is famous for his pop-art portraits. We will produce portraits of the Queen as part of our learning and learn about Queen Elizabeth II, Queen Victoria, and members of the Royal Family.
We are hoping to visit Conisborough Castle so that in Design Technology, we can design and make castles which we can use to retell stories and to talk about our visit.
In maths, we will learn more about the value of numbers to 20 and 50, as well as practising addition and subtraction. We will also learn to write series of instructions to create simple computer codes.
In English, we will continue to take part in RWI lessons and will be trying hard to learn our Set 1-3 sounds in phonics. Also, we will continue to retell our stories as part of Talk for Writing. Please ask your children to recite our latest story. The children will be learning to spell key words for their writing and to write in sentences.
Reading: three reads a week, the children will be expected to read their book at home at least three times a week to an adult to ensure secure progress.
Mathletics- 400 points per week. Checked on a Monday.
