Our learning challenge this half term is....Why are humans not like tigers? Our WOW will be a visit to Yorkshire Wildlife Park.
In English we will start by writing about our favourite memories of the school year for our report front cover. We will then write an informative leaflet about our favourite wild animal to take to Yorkshire Wildlife Park. We will have fun writing riddles about animals to entertain our friends, which we will make into a class book, and towards the end of term the children will write a letter to their new teacher to tell them all about themselves.
This half term we will be looking at time, multiplication and division, addition and subtraction, and number and place value.
In Science we will identify, name and label the basic parts of the human body, and say which part of the body is associated with each sense. We will also identify and name a variety of common animals including fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals.
Our Jigsaw theme this half term is 'Changing Me'. We will talk about how changes happen as we grow and that that is ok and discuss some ways to cope with changes.
We are at the allotment on Friday 7th June, pond dipping at Vicar Water on Friday 21st June and visiting Yorkshire Wildlife Park on Thursday 4th July.
We have P.E. on Wednesday and Friday. The children will be learning how to play cricket, and practising for Sports Day. 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.
