Once Upon A Time ...

 

Or first topic this year is all about traditional tales. We came in to school on Monday to find some mystery footprints that led from our classroom. Mrs Harris was worried so we followed them all the way to the library to see who they belonged to. We found an enormous beanstalk so we think they must belong to a giant!

 

 

We have been creating our own beanstalks and castles using different materials ...

In Maths we have been learning new vocabulary ...

We have also been ordering numbers from 1 to 20 forwards and backwards ...

We have been learning all about autumn ...

We enjoyed a little Christmas treat on the last day ...

We have been using tens frames to make numbers up to 20 ...

Supertato

 

This half term is about all things vegetables!! We will be focusing on the story Supertato and following his journey to save the poor veggies from the Evil Pea! We will learn about where and how potatoes are grown and why vegetables are important for keeping us healthy.

Home Learning

We aim to get 4 pieces of homework in their home learning diary a week. This can be anything from reading a couple of pages of their book, practising times tables to attending a club. For each piece of home learning your child will receive a merit. These are counted up at the end of each half term and go towards home learning awards which your child can then use in the homework hut. 

15 merits = Bronze award 

20 merits = Silver award

25 merits = Gold award
