Welcome to the Spring Term!
During the first half of this term our Science topic will be I’m Alive. We will be exploring things that are alive, things that used to be alive and things that have never been alive. We are looking forward to the children sharing the photos of themselves as new-borns. We will also be investigating the human body and our senses, as well as the animal kingdom e.g. fish, birds, amphibians, reptiles and mammals.
In English, we will be starting the term with instruction writing. We will be learning why instructions are important and writing our own instructions to trap different creatures. After half term we will then be looking at different fairy tales. We will be writing letters to different characters from the stories and also write our own versions of the stories.
In Maths, we will be continuing to develop our number fluency to 20. We will also be looking at addition and subtraction within 20 (using the part whole model), language and problem solving and counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. Later on in the term, we will be looking at developing our understanding of combinations of money up to 20p. We will also be learning about simple standard and non-standard units of measure.
In RE, we will be looking at the concept of ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ within the Christian faith. We will also be learning about Easter towards the end of the term.
This term is action packed and we’re looking forward to all the learning that the children will be doing.
