Our learning challenge this half term is....Which plants would Little Red Riding Hood find in our locals woods? Our WOW will be a visit to the local woods and allotments.
We will be reading the traditional tale Little Red Riding Hood and then writing a recount to send to her telling her all about our walk to the woods. We will also read Roald Dahls Revolting Rhymes, before making a wanted poster to recapture Little Red Riding Hood for crimes against the Big Bad Wolf!!!!
This half term we will be looking at capacity and volume, addition and subtraction, fractions, position and direction and 2D and 3D shapes.
In Science we will observe and describe how bulbs and seeds grow, and how they need water, light and a suitable temperature.
Our Jigsaw theme this half term is 'Relationships'. We will talk about how to make friends and solve friendship problems, and how to help others feel part of a group. We will discuss respect and how to help themselves and others when they feel upset or hurt.
We are walking to the local woods on Friday 26th April, at the allotment on 10th May and 7th June and pond dipping at Vicar Water on 21st June.
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.
