We hope everyone had a great half term holiday and is looking forward to the Spring 2.
This half term we are continuing our topic ‘Stories from Around the World’ with a focus on Australia. We will be learning about different animals from Australia and also completing some Aboroginal art work. We will then move onto 'Starry Night' which has a focus on the Van Gogh painting. We will be learning about the artist and his work. We will be learning about colour and mark making.
In Maths we will be learning about place value which will include comparing and ordering numbers and also finding one more and one less. We will be working with numbers up to 50 and beyond. We will also develop our measuring skills with weight, length, height and volume.
In English we will be focusing on securing sentence writing. We will be writing recounts using the children's own experiences and then moving on to narrative. We will also be looking at using prefixes eg un and suffixes eg er. We will also be continuing our work on daily reading and phonics while developing the children's knowledge of sounds.
