Spring Term Information
I hope you have all had a good Christmas and New Years.
This term our topic will be ‘How things are made’ and we will be looking at Toys and The Great Fire of London. We will be going to the Build a Bear factory to make our own class bear and have an old fashioned toy maker in and we will get the chance to make our own toys. We will be looking at different materials and how things are made in Science.
In English our fiction stories will be ‘This is the bear’ and ‘The Three little pigs’. Our non-fiction work will focus on a recount and instructions on how to look make a toy. Our poetry will be ‘On the Ning Nang Nong’ and Fire poems.
Maths we are starting by looking at place value to 20, counting, reading and writing numbers to 20, forwards and backwards in numerals and word one more/ one less/ equal to and most/ least/ fewer. We will then be looking at addition and subtraction to 50. Then moving on to at place value to 50, counting, reading and writing numbers to 50, forwards and backwards in numerals and word one more/ one less/ equal to and most/ least/ fewer and counting in 2s and 5s. We then will look at length and height and finish on volume and weight.
In RE the children will learn about Parables and all about Easter.
In PSHCE the children will be looking at hurting no living things and kindness to animals. We will also be learning how to tie our shoelaces!
PE will be on Tuesdays. Please send your child in in their school uniform. We recommend brining in your child’s PE kit on a Monday and taking it home on a Friday so if they need it at any point in the week extra it is already at school. Please make sure that all PE kit is named.
We will be swimming on Thursdays this term. Children will need to bring swimming costume, towel and goggles if they want them.
Homework will be sent home on a Monday and needs to be returned, completed to a good standard, on the Friday of the same week. Homework will consist of either an English or Maths piece plus some spellings that must be learnt each week ready for a spelling test on Friday. Please do support your child with their homework, especially their spellings, as this will help their learning enormously (but please don’t do it for them!).
Please also regularly read with your child at home. Your child will be given a reading record for you to write in when you have read with your child, plus a book from school (please keep this safe and return to school), but feel free to read other books from home or the library in Winsford as well. If you have any problems or concerns with reading with your child then please do let us know.
Each day your child needs to bring in:
