                                                                        Our Learning Challenge for this term is...

                       Under and Over the Ocean!


Our Learning this half term will be based around the theme of 'Under and Over the Ocean'. In UTW we will be visiting the seaside to compare it to where we live. We will look at both areas on Google Earth and also use Google Maps to plan our route. 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 based around the seaside and we will create our own ice cream shop! In our focused EAD sessions the children will practise a range of joining skills in preparation for making their own boat that they will then test in our outdoor water area to see if it floats. We will continue to follow our Charanga Music scheme, this half terms theme is Reflect, Rewind and Replay.  In Computing the children will be learning how to use a range of apps on the iPads to support their learning.  In RE the F2 theme is- Our wonderful world. The children will think about how we can care for living things and the Earth. 






In Literacy this half term our special stories are ‘What the ladybird heard at the seaside’, ‘Billy's Bucket’, No Nancy No, A Seaside Adventure’ and ‘The Odd Fish’. We will write a list of what we would need to pack in our suitcase if we were going on holiday. We will be creating some giant seaside pictures in the hall and using our phonics skills to label them. The children will also be writing a postcard to send to someone special! Finally, we will be designing and making an ice cream surprise.  In our daily phonics sessions, the children will be recapping Basics 3 letter sounds and how to blend and segment these sounds in words to read and write. 



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 also be measuring weight and learning how to double and half numbers and talking about the names and properties of 3D shapes. The year 1s will continue to focus on place value to 100, addition and subtraction of two digit numbers and recapping counting in multiples of 2s, 5s and 10s. They will also be learning to multiply and divide numbers using a range of strategies. 







In PE/Physical Development we will be preparing for Sports Day by mastering basic movements including; running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination in range of activities. The children will also be working in teams to create obstacle courses using a range of large scale outdoor equipment. They will the use their courses to practise moving in a variety of ways including; crawling, sliding, hopping, jumping. In class we enjoy our daily wake & shake 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 ourdoor equipment which they can access on a daily basis during free flow. 



Our Jigsaw topic is ‘Changing me’ we will talk about our body, growing up, changes and all the fun and fears we might have as we grow up. We will talk about the change of moving classes and how we feel about that.

We will be recapping all of the British Values that we have learnt about this year. 

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.
