Welcome back and a Happy New Year to you all!.
We hope that you have had a lovely Christmas break, that the children are rested and ready for a busy Spring Term.
This term our topic is ‘Street Detectives’. This topic is learning about our local community, looking at houses old and new and finding out how our streets have changed over the years. We be looking at the historical places within our town, what buildings were used for and talking to residents about their local knowledge of days gone by. We will be creating art work of views from around town, creating large models of significant local buildings, discussing what it means to be part of a community and how we can look after and improve our local area. We have already launched the topic with a local walk and a visit from a local resident.
English – We will be looking at narratives, biographies, recounts and diary entries. In addition, the Jellyfish will be exploring the well known stories of 'Horrid Henry' written by Francesca Simon.
Maths – We will be continuing to work upon the four basic calculations, revising number bonds, times tables and beginning shape, space and measure.
PE – Our PE day has moved to Monday and Friday and we will be focussing upon Dance.
