This half term we are going to be answering the question...'Would you go down to the woods today?' We will be exploring our core text "Little Evie in the Wild Wood" and learning about the way wolves are portrayed in stories. We will be using the setting of the story as a starting point to learn more about the countryside and what it is like there. We will compare this to other places we have learnt about, thinking what is the same and what is different. In science we will explore different micro-habitats and what species live there. In art we will be using different resources to create our art work using the British countryside as our inspiration. We will then be able to give an expert opinion of whether we should go down to the woods!
This half term we have got lots of exciting learning planned linked to the question Why do humans have pets? We will continue to follow our curriculum planning and make sure that our learning can be delivered successfully at home and at school.
We will be learning about the different animal classes, how to group objects/ animals. We will also learn about the life cycles of different animals.
We will be talking about our own pets and animals we have looked after and what animals need.
Click on the icon next to the correct week to find the learning we have prepared for you to complete at home. There will be a pack of work and some information to support you with your learning.
While you are supporting your child's learning at home we have produced some parent guides for you to help you. Please do get in touch with any other queries or support you would like and we will put out further information to help you ensure that home learning is successful for everyone.
This gives you an overview of what we cover in our English Grammar, Spelling, Phonics and Punctuation sessions. We will be delivering these live during our blended learning time. Your child will need paper and a pen or pencil. We will be exploring different spelling rules and strategies this half term for adding suffixes to root words.
Below is the phoneme mat that we use in class with the grapheme choices for each sound. There are some rare ones on here too that we will be teaching the children this year. This will really support the children when writing to choose the correct grapheme and checking that words look right.
