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 topic of ‘Our Wonderful World. In UTW we will be learning about London, Australia and China and comparing these countries to where we live. We will also be exploring our local area further by going for a ride on a big red bus! In Expressive Arts and Design the children will have access to the home corner where they will be using their imagination to recreate roles and experiences. Our outdoor role play area will be a London Bus and then an aeroplane where children can travel around the world! We will also be practising our painting skills, including colour mixing. We will then apply these skills to create some aboriginal art. We will continue to follow our Charanga Music scheme. In Computing we will be learning what an algorithm is and will practise our pre-programming skills. In RE, the children will learn about special places.
Our special stories are ‘The Naughty Bus’, ‘The Koala Who Could’ and 'The Great Race'. We will draw and label giant maps of where our naughty bus will go. We will then write our own naughty bus story. We will also be having a special visit from someone we will need to look after! He has come all the way from Australia, and we will need to write some questions to find out more about him. Finally, we will be learning to sequence and retell the story of The Great Race.In our daily phonics sessions, the children will either recap Basics 2 sounds and some will begin the Basics 3 letter sounds and learn how to blend and segment these sounds in words to read and write.
We will be taking a mastery approach to maths. Focusing on a number over two weeks using Numberblocks as a stimulus, to gain an in-depth knowledge and understanding of each number. We will be counting, recognising, forming and ordering these numbers. We will also be finding numbers that are one more/less and the children will learn to represent and partition our focus numbers using a range of resources.
Our Jigsaw theme this half term is ‘Dreams and Goals’ and the children will be discussing how to set themselves targets and goals for the year ahead.
Our British Value focus is Rule of Law. We will learn about this through a range of stories and by discussing our school rules in more detail.
We will continue to take part in our Well-Being Wednesday sessions to help us to learn how we can look after our well-being and mental health.
