Our Big Journey

 

This half term, our Autumn Big Journey is- I am a Superhero! What is your Superpower?

Our 'Super Start' is a mask making session as part of an 'imagineering' project!

Our 'Fantastic Finish' is a performance for parents.  We are going to write our own playscripts to perform about our Meta characters!

 

Literacy

 

In Literacy, we will be completing a three week introduction to narrative on our focus story 'The Enormous Turnip'.   As well as completing sequencing activities, descriptive work and story writing, we will also be growing our own vegetables!

 

We would also love our parents to come into school and share some learning with us so we are going to write our own playscripts to perform!  We are going to work in groups to create a play about each Meta character!

 

In our class VIPERs sessions, we analyse a range of stories through different media.  This half-term, we will be working on a short film called 'Caterpillar Shoes'.  Every class also has a chapter book as a daily reader, focusing on authors such as Michael Morpurgo, Enid Blyton and Dick-King Smith.

 

Children take part in daily reading activities in school. We feel that this will help to develop the children's decoding, fluency and comprehension skills. Children have the opportunity to change their reading book every Monday and Thursday. Please make sure children read every night as reading is vital to ensure that children make progress with their learning. There is lots of evidence to show that children who read regularly at home improve their attainment in maths and writing too!

 

Mathematics

In maths, we will be focussing on place value and number skills.  We will work hard to develop our key problem solving skills, in both practical and written contexts.  

 

Computing

E-Safety

The children will learn about how to stay safe when using the internet, including sharing information, gaming, communicating online and learning about the dangers of Cyberbullying and how to report this.
