Happy New Year
It has been wonderful to welcome the children into 2024 with some wonderful discoveries in the Amazon Rainforest through our new book, The Great Kapok Tree. This is leading to some beautiful descriptive language and giving the children the chance to explore the beauty of the rainforest.
After Half Term we will be reading Billy and The Beast and this will give us the inspiration for our writing.
In Maths we have started to learn about money. How we can make the same amounts, how we can give change and which amounts are bigger. Please help your children with this as much as you can at home because it is such an important life skill. We will then move on to telling the time.
We are continuing to use Little Wandle and have begun our journey on becoming better spellers. Please see the Little Wandle website here if you want any initial support with these.
We use White Rose Maths and we'll start this term with work on Place Value, ensuring that we are confident with using numbers to 100. We will then move on to some Addition and Subtraction, followed by work on Shape at the end of the term. We will also be having a focus on telling the time across the term.
Our Geography topic is based around the rainforest and we will be comparing the environment that we live in to that of r. Thinking about how people live, buildings they live in and the the weather.
The children will be outside as much as possible this term because we love using the amazing space that we have here at Marton. Please make sure that your child has a coat in school and the correct PE kit for Thursday. If there are any changes to PE or if the children will need PE kit on any additional days, I will let you know.
