Term 6

This term our learning theme is "Where shall we go today?". During our learning theme we will be finding out about some of the natural wonders of our world and where they are located and how we can look after our natural world. We will be exploring floating and sinking and the properties of different materials. We will also be looking at some similarities and differences between things in the past and now with a focus on pirates and the seaside.


Here are some of the stories that we will be using to support our learning.

Week 1 Update

We have had a busy first week back at school. In our phonics we have started work on phase 4. The purpose of this phase is to consolidate children’s knowledge of graphemes in reading and spelling words containing adjacent consonants  such as 'nd', lk', 'lp', 'md' and words that have more than one syllable. We have enjoyed sharing our new class text 'The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch". As part of this learning we became scientists for the afternoon and were exploring different materials to protect Mr Grinling from the rain. This week we have also introduce the children to Rekenreks which they have enjoyed using to build their number sense and understanding of number relationships.

Week 2 Update

This week we enjoyed a visit from Geoff from the RNLI . We enjoyed dressing up as lifeguards and learning about how to stay safe at the beach. The Beach Buddies talked to us about;

-life guards that we might see at the beach and how they can help us

-the different flags at the beach and what they mean

-the importance of learning to float

-to take our rubbish home with us

- to stay away from the sinking mud
