Miss Parveen- Class Teacher
Miss Begum supports us in class
In maths our main focus will be number, counting up and down from any number to a 100 and beyond, number bonds up to 20 e.g. bonds to 7, 8, 9, 13 etc. Understanding the value of digits in a 2 digit number and making sure we can confidently count in 2's, 5's and 10's ready to learn our table facts. We also need to focus on written calculations to help solve tricky problems.
We are getting competitive with learning our timetables! Each class has a special timetables mountain, children need to aim to reach the top of mountain but they must be able to learn their bonds up to 20, count in 2's, 5's and 10's and then learn the timetables fluently to reach the summit! Children can aim to get to the summit at any point in the year once reached children must be continue to learn their times tables!
This term our writing topic is going to be based on 'Whatever the Weather' we will be reading the story 'Cloudy with a Chance of meatballs,' and innovating this when we create our own.
Children will be involved in many activities such as reading and responding, they will be immersed in roleplay to further embed ideas gathered and written tasks. Children will practise writing good, quality sentences that include adjectives, verbs, conjunctions and the use of correct punctuation and grammar.
This term our topic is called,'Whatever the Weather!' In science children will be exploring the best materials to use when creating a boat for Paddington bear. Children will also be engaged in learning all about the seasons and creating a simple information text linked to this.
Homework will be given out on a Thursday and is due in on the following Tuesday. Please make sure they are handed in on Tuesday so we have enough time to provide new homework and reading books!
PE is on Monday and Wednesday this half term but P.E bags must be kept in school every day so that if the timetable does change we are still able to do PE!
Swimming will take place in the Summer Term-further details will be given out closer to the time!
If you have questions or queries, please do not hesitate to speak to me and the start or at the end of the day!
