The Brilliant Bonsais
We are GOLDEN and we SPARKLE!
This half term we are learning all about purrrfect pets. We are learning to write postcards, letters and diary entries using 'There's no cats in this book', 'Paddington Post' and 'Can I be your dog?' as our reading hooks. We have an exciting visitor to stay at school for a week and we can't wait to show you who it is!
In maths we will be learning how to solve word problems using all the skills we have learnt throughout Year 1 so far. We are beginning to learn how to divide and multiply, using these skills to understand fractions. We are going to practice our fluency skills to help us defeat our maths superheroes.
English and Phonics
This half term we will be focusing on non-fiction texts to write postcards, letters and diary entries all about our purrrfect pets. Alongside tricky words all children should now have phonics bug books which they can read at home. These are in sets and are linked with the sounds that your child is learning to read in class.
As Scientists we will be learning how to compare different types of animals, including fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals.
As Geographers we will be learning to identify different weather patterns, linking to our science curriculum by focusing on the season of Spring and the changes it brings!
In computing we will be Lego builders and Maze Explorers. We will be following important instructions and use directions to complete challenges successfully.
As Artists we will be using a range of materials creatively to make collage animals in the style of author and illustrator Eric Carle.
