Our learning challenge this half term is....Why would a dinosaur not make a good pet? We will have our very own class pet - a rabbit will be visiting from White Post Farm, and will stay for the week in Koala Class!!
We will be reading the texts Jacob O'Reilly Wants a Pet, Tyrannosaurus Drip and If the Dinosaurs came back, and using these to help us to write a list of animals which we think would make a good pet, make a dinosaur 'Wanted' poster and write our very own dinosaur story.
This half term we will be looking at number and place value, length and weight, addition and subtraction and 2D and 3D shapes.
In Science our topic will be All living things and their habitats. We will discuss different animals and their young, identify their basic needs and talk about life cycles of different animals. We will discuss and identify whether animals are carnivores, herbivores and omnivores and find out about food chains.
Our Jigsaw theme this half term is 'Being Me in My World'. We will talk about how we are different from our friends, why we appreciate someone who is special to us and how we feel when we succeeded in a new challenge.
We are at the allotment on Friday 28th September. Children can come in their school T-shirts, wear jeans or joggers and bring trainers or wellies to change into.
We have P.E. on Wednesday and Friday. Children will need a white or green round neck t-shirt, shorts and plimsolls or trainers. Long hair will need to be tied back. If possible, earrings should be taken out. If this is not possible, they should be covered with plasters or micro-pore tape.
Homework will be given out on Friday. Children should bring it back the following week, and they will get a sticker on their homework chart.
We expect children to read every night at home, and this to be recorded in the children's reading diary. Children will get stickers in their diary when they have reached 25, 50, 75, 100, 125, 150, 175 and 200 nights worth of reading, along with a small reward. The number of reads your child has achieved will also be recorded on a chart which will be displayed in the classroom window. Our Open Door day is Thursday. We encourage parents and carers to come into school at 2.55 and share a library book with your child.
