In term one we have been learning to count in 2, 5 10, number bonds, addition, subtraction and 2D shape. In literacy we have been writing a wishing tale and an invitation. Our grammar focus is capital letters, full stops and finger spacing. We have been using connectives and adjectives to make our writing more exciting. In our topic work we are focusing on pirates, life and times of famous people and learning about human and physical features. In art we have experimented with collage materials and in DT we have been using construction toys to build pirate ships. The focus of our PE lessons are balancing and spatial awareness.
During term 3 we have been learning about the Gruffalo as our core text.  Our grammar focus is; finger spaces, capital letters and full stops. We are learning to use adjectives to make our writing more exciting and connectives to extend our sentences. In Numeracy we have continued to learn our 2, 5 and 10 times tables and ordering numbers to 100. We are also learning to use money and understand the values of each coin. This week our unit is 3D shapes where we are learning to identify, name and describe their properties. Every week we will be doing an investigation relating to our weekly unit. In science we are learning about animals including humans where we will be using the outside forest school environment. Art work will focus on Andy Goldsworthy and in CDT we will be creating different animal homes. Our topic work will be the wonderful world around us.
Term 4 we have been using the story Bog Baby as our core text. Firstly we all went out in the school grounds to find the Bog Baby as he had gone missing. We looked on the school field, around the pond, in the forest school and eventually we located him in the mud kitchen hiding in a saucepan! During this term we will be using time connectives, asking questions and exclamation marks. In numeracy we are using multiplication and division, addition and subtraction. This week we are working on time, days of the week, months of the year, seasons, telling the time to an hour and half hour. In science we are looking at habitats and why they are important to creatures and how we must not disturb them. Also we have identified common British birds, categorizing, size, colour, diet and habitat. We have sorted common animals by their diet, carnivore, herbivore or omnivore. Today we have looked at the life cycles of a frog and ordered them correctly by their stages. In art and design we have used collage materials, paint and pattern.
