During the Spring Term we are learning about Queens and castles. We will be looking at the Royal family Tree and comparing it with our own. We will collect key facts about the Queen and paint her portrait. In Science our topic is materials. We will use scientific language to describe objects and how they can change.
In English, we are looking at fantasy stories. We will continue learning to use capital letters, finger spaces, full stops, adjectives and joining sentences with 'and'. We will introduce conjunctions “because” “but” “so” to make our writing more interesting. In handwriting we are learning to join our letters correctly.
In Maths we are working on addition and subtraction to 20 using different methods. We will also use these methods to work on number problems.
Please encourage your children to read every night. Books will be changed on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Children choose a library book on Tuesdays to share at home.
PE sessions are on a Tuesday and Friday. The children must have their PE kit in school for these lessons. We are also completing a 'Daily Mile' several times a week.
