Our school's Learning Challenge this term is 'Why are humans not like tigers?'
In Literacy our special stories are 'The tiger who came to tea', 'Rumble in the jungle' and 'The very hungry caterpillar'. We will enjoy retelling the stories, describing the characters (focusing especially on the tiger), looking for familiar words in the stories, and listening out for words that rhyme (especially in 'Rumble in the jungle').
In Maths this term we will recap key counting and number recognition skills, including counting groups of objects, knowing when there is the same number, counting the total number, linking the numeral to the number of objects, and putting numerals in order.
Understanding the World
In this topic we will be focusing particularly on animals, particularly animals that live in the jungle. We will learn a little about them through our special stories, and also by watching video clips of the animals living in the wild.
In our outdoor area we will be caring for the plants and watching them grow.
We also hope to have caterpillars that we can watch grow and change into butterflies, just like the Very Hungry Caterpillar!
