Summer 1

Please ensure that you are practising your spellings at home ready for your weekly spelling test on a Friday.

This term our topic is Paws, Claws and Whiskers. We will be completing lots of work on animals with claws, paws and whiskers within our wider curriculum lessons.

Reading Gems: This week’s Reading Gem is ‘enjoy’. We will be visiting the library to choose a book that we love and completing activities in class to encourage our love of reading.

Phonics: We are following the Read, Write Inc scheme of work. We are working on the blue book ‘Barker’.

Science: This term we will be looking at classifying animals, habitats, life cycles and looking after pets.

Geography: This term we are learning about the United Kingdom, the continents and oceans of the world and finding out where different animals live.

History: This term we will be looking at David Attenborough and Mary Anning.

Art/DT: This term we are creating collages using natural materials, creating posters, creating a meal for an animal and designing a tin of dog food.

Maths: We will be looking at the properties of 2-D and 3-D shapes, fractions and length and width.

Below is an overview of some of the things that we will be learning about in our topic of Paws, Claws and Whiskers. An overview has been sent home with ideas on how you can support your child’s learning of maths and english at home too.
