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 fantastic Summer break!
1/2F's Big Journey
Our first Big Journey this year is 'Superheroes.' We will be doing lots of literacy, science and design & technology work linked to the hilarious story - 'Supertato' by Sue Hendra. In Science we will be exploring different materials and their suitability for a superhero's cape. We will then be using our scientific knowledge to design and create a cape for Supertato! There will also be an opportunity for us to showcase our capes in a Supertato Fashion Show!
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.
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. 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.
