We have had a fantastic first half term at school and have learnt lots of new and interesting things. We have made many friends and are getting to know the school rules and routines. We have all settled in well and are looking forward to another exciting half term.
This half term we have a fun packed topic called, “Let The World Hear You Roar!” The children will be learning all about Dinosaurs and this theme will form the basis of a lot of our learning.
We have a very exciting day on Monday 26th November where we are having special visitors come to school and the children will get to take part in a ’Life Long Workshop.’ The children will have the opportunity to be archaeologists and dig for bones and fossils using brushes and trowels. A baby Tyrannosaurus Rex will also be visiting which we are extremely excited about. This fun experience will give us lots of interesting ideas and facts to write about.
The children will be reading stories such as ‘Harry & His Bucket Full of Dinosaurs,’ and creating our own stories such as ‘We’re Going On A Dinosaur Hunt.’ This half term the children will continue to practise hearing initial sounds in words and labelling different pictures. We then will move on to writing words and building up to writing simple sentences.
In Mathematics we will be learning how to touch count objects accurately and to match numerals to quantity. We will learn to name 2D and 3D shapes, describe them and use the shapes to make pictures. We will be moving on to solving simple addition problems using counters to help us.
We will be celebrating our school’s 125th birthday in the week commencing 19th November. During this week we will get to experience some of the things that Victorian children did whilst they were at school.
PE will be every Thursday for this half term.
Please keep checking our webpage for more pictures and news soon! It is going to be a very exciting half term that’s for sure!
