Welcome to Spring 2!
We hope everyone had a great half term holiday. This half term we will continue with our topic ‘What can we learn about our world from stories?’ which is a DT and Science based topic. We will be fining out about stories from different countries and also investigating floating and sinking by making boats. Later on we will be starting the topic 'Starry Night' which is an arts based topic.
In Maths we will be focusing on place value. We will be ordering numbers and also representing numbers in different ways. We will be using lots of different resources including objects, Numicon and tens and ones. Later in the half term we will be moving onto measuring which will include length, height, weight and volume. We will be using non-standard units and then moving onto standard units, such as, cm, kg and ml.
In English we will be focusing on writing linked to our topic work so we will be finding out about a variety of different stories from around the world. We will be focusing on using capital letters, full stops and finger spaces. We will also be trying to make our writing sound more interesting by using adjectives, question marks and exclamation marks.
We continue our Read Write Inc phonics sessions which take place daily. We will also be continuing our weekly spelling tests with a focus on the Year 1 common exception words.
