All about Tiger Class

In Tiger Class we always try our best and have a go even when it's tricky. We love a challenge and understand it's ok to make mistakes, that just shows we're learning! We are kind to all our friends in Tiger Class and we like to help each other. We're all superstars!

                                        

 

                                                                        Our Learning Challenge for this term is...

                                      

                                                                    

Our Learning this half term will be based around the theme of 'Where the Wild Things are' with a focus on Minibeasts! As part of our UTW learning, we are excited about visiting our Wildlife Area to look at the different minibeasts and their habitats. We will learn the names of different minibeasts and discuss why they are suited to different habitats. We will be creating our own wormery and learning how to take care of our worms. We will also be taking care of some baby caterpillars and watching them grow and change into beautiful butterflies. We are also having some minibeasts come to visit. We will also look at where our school is on Google Earth. We will also be visiting Vicar Water and using Google Maps to plan our route.  

In Expressive Arts and Design the children will be learning about colour mixing and printing skills. In Computing we will be exploring a range of apps on the iPads. During Music sessions, we will be following the Charanga Music scheme. We will listen and respond to different styles of music and explore and create (pulse, rhythm and pitch) using voices and instruments. 

In RE, the children will learn about ‘Belonging’. We will discuss the different groups and communities that we belong to. The children will also be learning about how and why people celebrate Ramadan. 

                                                  

                                                                                                                            

                                                         

                                              

 

Our special stories are 'Superworm’, ‘Mad about Minibeasts’ and ‘Twist and Hop Minibeast Bop’. We are very excited to continue our Drawing Club Journey. Each week we will read one of the stories and then create our own characters and adventures based on them. We will use our phonics knowledge to write labels, captions and codes linked to our drawings. We are excited about making our own wormery. We will write a list of what resources we need and then a set of instructions to help another class to make one too. The children will learn what a riddle is and we will be writing our own riddles based on one of the minibeasts from our focused text- Mad About Minibeasts. We will also be learning about rhyming and creating rhymes. In our daily Supersonic Phonics sessions we will continue to learn the Basics 3 letter sounds and how to blend and segment these sounds in words. 

       

                                      

We take a mastery approach to maths. Focusing on a number over 2 weeks to gain an in-depth knowledge & understanding of each number. We will be counting, recognising and ordering these numbers. We will be learning how to partition the numbers to help us to add and subtract them using a range of resources such as 10s frames, part-part whole templates and numicon to help us. We will learn about doubling and halving. We will also be exploring capacity and time. 

 

                                                                     

In PE/PD the F2 children will continue taking part in weekly lessons in the Balance Ability sessions. In class we enjoy our daily wake & shake, dough disco and Yoga sessions to help us to develop our balance, co-ordination, and core strength. The children also have access to a wide range of outdoor equipment which they can access on a daily basis during free flow. 

                                                           

 

Our Jigsaw topic is ‘Relationships’ we will talk about making friends, falling out and being the best friend we can be. Our British Value focus is ‘Individual Liberty’. We will listen to a range of stories to help us to understand what this mean.

We will continue to take part in our daily yoga and Well-Being Wednesday sessions to help us to learn how we can look after our well-being and mental health.
