Our topic for the spring term is Space. We will be learning about the Solar System and will get involved in lots of creative activities with KS1 such as marbling and using chalks to create constellations. On the 30th January KS1 will have a visit from Mr Starman where we will learn about night and day, the visible night sky and the history of the space race. In English we will be creating our own planets, writing about what we would find in Space as well as writing about our visit from Mr Starman.
In Maths, we will be focusing on numbers where we will learn how to find one more and one less than a given number to 20 as well as adding and subtracting numbers practically. We will also be looking at 3D shape, height and weight.
Our PE lessons are Mondays and Tuesdays. Children need to have full PE kits with trainers. Earrings must be be removed before they come in to school on these days for our sessions and long hair must be tied back for safety.
We ask if you could read with your child at home on a daily basis and record it in their reading diary to support with their learning. The children also have an exciting opportunity to collect certificates in our reading challenge which is carried out throughout the school.
Homework folders need to be in school on a Wednesday. New words will be sent home once your child is secure with their previous words.
At the beginning of term, the children brought home letters explaining their current learning targets. It is really important that they continue to focus on these targets as it will help them to make good progress this term.
