We will using these two books throughout our curriculum. In our English lessons we will be will be creating character profiles, role playing stories, sequencing, writing stories and so much more!
In maths we will be exploring place value within 10, introducing addition and subtraction within 10, exploring shape and then move on to place value within 20. Throughout these areas of learning we will be using a variety of resources and making it practical where possible.
Our PE lessons will be on a Monday and a Friday. Throughout these lessons we will be understand why exercise is important and how we prepare our bodies for exercise. We will also be exploring balancing and different ways we can move by co-ordinating our bodies.
History will be a main focus for us this term where we will be using our non-fiction text book in order to deepen our understanding of lives of significant individuals in the past. We will also begin to understand how to find and answer questions about people of the past by using different resources to help us.
During our Science lessons we will be exploring different materials, including sorting, grouping and comparing similarities and differences.
In our Art lessons we will be observing, painting and creating our own superhero. We will draw a superhero using a step-by-step guide, paint the drawing using our colour of choice and then create a background so our superheroes will stand out!
In RE we will begin to explore and understand what Christians believe about who made the world and the creation story.
Our PSHE lessons will be a lot discussion based activities where we will talk and understand feelings, learn to communicate our feelings and also recognise people important to us. In addition to this we will use Gooseberry planet to help us understand how to stay safe online.
