Term 4 - The Stories People Tell

Welcome back to Term 4! We hope you have had a restful half term break and had chance to relax and spend time together with your family. We are looking forward to an exciting term ahead.

 

This term our topic theme is mainly centred around History and Art knowledge and skills. It is called, 'The Stories People Tell'. Through stories from the past, we will learn about some of the people in the past and their crafts and traditions. We will be able to compare how our lives are similar and different. For those of you keen to investigate Art and History skills further there are a some useful websites you might like to explore:

This term our PE days will remain as Wednesdays and Fridays. The children in school will continue to wear their PE kit on these days. Please be mindful that the children may do PE outside when in school, and should therefore have something warm to wear.

 

As always should you have any queries or need support with anything, please contact the office team who can then arrange further contact with the class teacher. 

 

With very best wishes for a successful term ahead.

Term 3 -Push Me Pull You

Welcome back to term 3. We hope you had an enjoyable Christmas and wish you a very happy new year. 

 

This term our main topic theme is Science based. In ‘Push Me Pull You’ we will be using our Science investigation skills to find out how things move. At home you might want to look at how some of the toys and games you have move, and which are powered by pushes or pulls. To further develop your Science skills you might want to carry out some fun experiments and tell us all about them. There are some great ideas on the following website:

Make sure you let us know about your discoveries on Showbie.

 

This term in English we will be learning the story of The Three Little Pigs. Hopefully the children will be able to show you the actions and tell you the story. If you are able to, read some traditional tales at home and talk about some common themes and characters.

 

As always we look forward to sharing the milestones in our reading rainbow challenge - we are so proud of how many certificates we were able to award last term. Don’t forget to log any reading on the Go Read app (this doesn’t have to be reading from the school book - please include details of my other reading activities you do at home). 
 

 Don’t forget to keep logging in to Mathletics too, it has been great to hand out some of the bronze and silver certificates last term. I wonder who could be the first to achieve gold...?

 

Our PE days will remain on Wednesdays and Fridays. The children will continue to come to school in their PE kit. As it will be cold please ensure the children have a warm jacket to wear as they will be outdoors for many of the sessions.

 

Our homework and home learning will continue to be on Showbie. You can upload any photographs and examples of activities you have done. This is also an easy way to contact us with any queries. We look forward to seeing and hearing about the things you have done. Should there be a need for an absence from school you will also find our home learning here. 
 

We look forward to sharing more of the term ahead here and as always thank you for your continued support.

Kind regards

Key Stage One team.

 

 

 

We have been using scientific skills to find out which material will make a good boat and sail. We have made predictions and tested these out.
We have looked at art on a similar theme and talked about the different styles used by the artists in their paintings. We talked about the parts of the paintings; foreground, middle ground and background. We have used mixed media (pencil crayon, oil and chalk pastel and felt pen) to create our own versions. We added lines and patterns to show the artists painting styles.

Term 2 - From A to B - Part 2

This term continues 'From A to B' from term 1this time with a History focus.

 

We started the term becoming aviators. We made and tested paper aeroplanes. We then thought about changes we could make to the design of our aeroplanes to see if this might change the distance they flew.

Term 1 - From A to B - Part 1

We looked at different types of transport and created collages sorting them into groups of land, sea and air.
We had a super start to our topic, ‘From A to B’, looking at different types of transport and talking about similarities and differences.
