Welcome to the home of The Eager Elephants! We work extremely hard everyday but we have lots of fun along the way!
This Half Term
Welcome back! We hope you all had a lovely half term break!
1/2F's Big Journey
This half term, our Big Journey is: Fire! Fire! Friend or Foe? Our 'Super Start' will involve the children predicting and observing what will happen to a teabag once it is lit. Throughout the topic we will be doing lots of History and Art work linked to the Great Fire of London. For our 'Fabulous Finish,' we will be hosting a 'Fire Festival!'
In Literacy we will be reading 'Little Beauty' by Anthony Brown. We will be developing our vocabulary to describe how the gorilla is feeling throughout the story. We will then be using this vocabulary to retell the story through writing diary entries.
As part of 'Anti-Bullying' week', we will also be reading 'Mr Big' by Ed Vere and writing character profiles.
In Maths we will be focussing heavily on the place value of numbers; numeral and word recognition and counting in 1s, 2s, 5s, and 10s. We will also be introducing addition and subtraction as well as multiplication and division.
Maths Weekly Skills Test
Every Monday the children will complete a Maths Weekly Skills test. There are 20-25 questions which focus on all aspects of the KS1 maths curriculum. Each week the children will be given their score and will have the opportunity to take it home and work on those questions that they found difficult. The aim is to keep improving and beating their personal score on a weekly basis!
This term our indoor PE lesson will be on a Wednesday and our outdoor PE lesson will be on a Thursday. We will be creating a Fire Dance during out indoor PE slot and completing the Golden Mile every Thursday during our outdoor PE slot. Please ensure that both indoor and outdoor PE kits are brought in to school on a Monday and stay in school until Friday.
We would like to try and encourage children to read their book at least 3 times. We feel that this will help to develop the children's decoding skills, fluency and comprehension skills. We will therefore change our reading books on Mondays and Thursdays. Please make sure children read every night as reading is vital to ensure that children make progress with their learning.
