This is our Class Motto:  T.E.A.M.  - Together Everyone Achieves More.

Thank you for all your support over this last half terms remote learning.

      Dear Parents,

 

        2nd Spring half term  - our topic will be:     'Let me tell you a Story'. 

  • English will focus on different Genre of books, the language and 'plots' of the stories and in accordance with 'Vipers' we will be looking closely at the vocabulary, inferences from the text, make predictions, explain our preferences, seek evidence and sequence the order of the stories.
  • Our Maths focus for this half term will be measuring Weight and Capacity followed by Time.  Please encourage your children to 'measure' ingredients for baking/cooking and use 'time' in practical ways whilst they are at home, as you will be able to show the use of these in more practical ways than the oak lessons.
  • In Science we are looking at Teeth and Eating. There will be some activities on the timetable for the children to find out information.

        Shelley has found out that Southend Library are offering some 'online' resources that you can access whilst the library is closed.

        She will send a  link out for this in a separate e-mail.

  • Geography and History in these areas of the curriculum we will be identifying the places and settings through maps and using previous knowledge of continents we have explored as well as the era in which the stories are set.  
  • In French we will explore colours, size, parts of the body, in order to describe.  
  • In Art we will be looking at illustrations and our skills from making volcanoes etc will come into use when we create a monster from recycling for DT.

      Some of the stories that we will be reading and exploring will be stories from other faiths, as well as the Easter story to complete our R.E.

 

 We do hope that you will make some new discoveries with your children

whilst working with them to complete their homework.

Great reading is happening and the children are keen to show that someone has heard them at home - they have their ZPD levels on the front of their reading record and quizzing is going well.
