Welcome to Tigers!
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!
PE Days: Wednesday (Children should arrive to school dressed in their PE kit on Wednesdays. If your child has earrings please remove them or provide your child with plasters).
Homework will be available on Tapestry and half termly challenges will be set. These will then be assessed at the end of the half term.
Reading Books: Your child's reading book will be changed once a week. Our class reading chart will be displayed on our classroom window and filled in when your child reaches one of the milestones in their reading diary. Children are also expected to read a book on Bug Club each week which will contribute to their number of reads.
Our Learning Challenge for this term is...
Our Learning this half term will be based around the topic of 'Food Glorious Food'.
Our Understanding the World learning will focus on past and present. We will start by talking about our families and how we have changed since we were babies. Then we will be learning about Mr Cadbury and how how he created his chocolate empire all those years ago.
In Expressive Arts and Design we will help to set up our class home corner where children can use their imagination to recreate roles and experiences. Our outdoor role play area will be a Superhero Lair where we can dress up and pretend to be superheroes saving the day! We will also design and make our own superhero masks. The children will be working on their pencil skills to help them to draw a superhero version of themselves. We will also be making our own chocolate lollies with the help of a 'Chocolate Expert' who will be coming to visit us.
In Computing we will be learning how to use the iPads, including how to take a photo and draw a picture using the Glow Draw App.
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 begin to appreciate their uniqueness and what makes them special.
In PE we will be taking part in ABC fundamentals lessons with our sports coach which will help us master the key skills needed for our future P.E lessons. We also enjoy our daily dough disco and Yoga sessions to help us to develop our finger strength, balance and co-ordination and core strength.
In Literacy this half term our special stories are Superkid, Supertato and Run, Veggies, Run. The children will design and make their own Supertato. They will draw themselves as a superhero and think about what their superpower would be. They will also be sorting healthy and non-healthy foods and thinking about what letter sounds they begin with. In our daily phonics sessions we will learn the Phase 2 & 3 letter sounds and how to blend and segment these sound in words.
We take a mastery approach to maths. Focusing on a number over two weeks to gain an in-depth knowledge and understanding of each number. We will be counting, recognising and ordering these numbers. We will also be finding numbers that are one more/less using practical resources to help us. Children will be learning to understand and use positional language. We will also be sequencing our daily routine.
Our Jigsaw theme is ‘Being Me in My World’. We will learn about different feelings and how to manage them to help us to self regulate. We will also learn how to work together as a team (e.g. listening to adults, tidying up, playing nicely with our friends).
Our British Value focus is Democracy. We will learn how to vote and debate our thoughts and ideas.
