Welcome to Class 1I
This term through our topic of ‘Who lives in a place like this?’ we will be learning about homes and buildings and familiarising the children with our local area and finding out all about castles.
We have lots of stimulating activities planned for this topic including learning about everyday materials, designing and building a house for the three little pigs, finding out all about how homes are built in real life and creating our own artwork inspired by Paul Klee. We are excited to be researching kings and queens and how they lived.
In English we will be developing our phonic knowledge through the Read Write Inc scheme. We will be using ‘talk for writing’ immerse ourselves in the worlds of the Three Little Pigs and Castles. We will focus on the skills of being able to re enact, retell and write more independently.
In Numeracy we will be developing our maths skills of counting, partitioning, calculating, securing number facts and representing numbers in various ways. We are really excited to be incorporating our Numicon and outdoor maths resources into our lessons.
In RE we are learning about God’s Love for us through our topics of ‘Families’ and ‘Belonging’.
In Design Technology we will be designing and making our own buildings. Our Art will focus on Paul Klee’s ‘Castle and Sun’ picture.
Our Geography focus will be to find out about the different buildings in our local area.
Our PE also takes on an movement theme with the children practising balance skills, in addition to developing gross motor skills outdoors.
