Welcome to Rabbits!
I hope you all had a wonderful break! I can’t wait to hear all about it!
We are going to continue with our topic, ‘life in the freezer’. The children loved their trip to the Snowdome. It inspired them to write a persuasive leaflet about a winter theme park. Last half term, the children learnt about the Arctic. This half term, they will learn about Antarctica. They will learn about the weather and animals in Antarctica and compare it to the Arctic.
In science, we will continue learning about plants. The children have loved learning about plants so far. They have enjoyed making predictions and planting a variety of vegetables. The vegetables are almost ready to be harvested. The children made some predictions about how long it would take the vegetables to grow so we will reflect on our predictions.
In English, we will be writing a non-chronological report about a made up animal from Antarctica. The children will use their imagination to create a made up animal and will write their very own non-chronological report.
There will also be many reading opportunities for the children. We will have an afternoon a week focused on reading where the children will be able to read one to one to an adult as well as working in guided reading groups supported by an adult and engaging in various independent reading activities. We make sure children are reading their school reading books every day. Please ensure you are reading with your child as much as you can to support the progress that they are making. A variety of books will also be read to the whole class daily. The children will also engage in whole class reading where the children will read a school reading book together as a class. Phonics will be taught twice a day every day apart from Thursdays where it will be taught once in the day and we will be following the phonics scheme, ‘Sounds Write’. Children will have phonics cards come home with them every Friday so please read through the words with your child.
Mathematics will primarily focus on measurement and geometry. The children will learn about measuring and recording volume. They will then move onto learning about the properties of 2D and 3D shapes.
In RSHE, the children will move onto economic wellbeing where they will learn about looking after money and saving money. The children will also have a few lessons on transitioning to year 2 so that they feel ready for the new year.
PE will take place on Monday mornings and Thursday afternoons. The children will have dance lessons on a Monday morning and will have multi-sports on a Thursday afternoon. Children will need to come to school in their P.E kit on a Monday and a Thursday. On a Thursday afternoon, the children will have a P.E lesson with one of our P.E coaches and will have an R.E lesson with Mrs Hart for the second part of the afternoon.
