Our learning challenge this half term is....How have toys changed? Our WOW will be a visit to Mansfield Museum to find out about toys from the past.
We will be watching Toy Story and creating our very own film review to send to Pixar!! Hopefully they will take our ideas on board for their new Toy Story film!! We will also be reading the book Lost in the Toy Museum, and of course writing our letters to Santa.
This half term we will be looking at number and place value, capacity and volume, fractions, money and time.
In Science we will be investigating materials. We will discuss the different materials which toys can be made of and establish the different properties of materials before designing and making our own toy car. We will then test our cars to see which will roll the furthest.
Our Jigsaw theme this half term is 'Celebrating Difference'. We will talk about how we are different from our friends, understand what bullying is, and understand how bullying might feel.
We will be visiting Mansfield Museum during the week commencing 19th November. Exact date to follow.
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 by the following Wednesday. They will get a sticker on their homework chart, and a stamp on their Bear Hunt sheet.
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.
