Our new learning this term will be 'Rio De Vida' where we will be learning all about Rio.
We will be comparing Rio to Peterborough and looking at the human and physical features of both places to make comparisons.
We will be identifying the seven continents and five oceans in Geography. For our Science work we will be looking at the seasons and how they are different.
For our Art work will be creating carnival masks and exploring the work of Brazilian Artist Beatriz Milhazes and creating colourful abstract paintings and prints.
English - We will continue to follow 'The Write Stuff' approach in English to support our writing and will be focussing on the fantastic and basics. We will be writing sentences that include capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. We will also be learning how to use 'and' and adjectives to make our writing more exciting! Handwriting will also be a great focus and we will be having daily practise.
We will continue to develop our work on spoken language using our talk tactics and oracy benchmarks.
Spellings - This term we will focus on spelling tricky words. These will be sent home on a Friday with your child. Please practise them at home.
Maths- In Maths we will be focusing on place value to 50. In this unit we will be looking at representing numbers on different ways, counting, ordering and comparing numbers. We will also be counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.
We will continue to use Tapestry as a form of communication as well as Teams. Please make sure you can access both. Please ask if you need any support with this.
PE will be on Mondays and Thursdays. Please ensure your child comes to school in their PE kit. All jewellery must be removed.
Please read with your child at least 3 times a week and record a comment in their reading record. Reading books will be changed once we see 3 comments in the records. Staff will be checking reading records daily. If your child has read then their name will be added to the reading wheel and prizes will be drawn on a Friday.
Miss Taylor will be checking reading records and counting up how many times your child has read. There will be bronze, silver and gold reading awards depending on how many times your child has read at home.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to speak to a member of staff, we are here to support you and your child.
