Hi all! We would like to wish you a very happy New Year and hope you had a lovely Christmas. Our topic this Spring is 'Up, Up and Away'. We will start off by exploring Flight through Nature, leading us onto the Science of Flight in which we will be learning about Forces. We will then journey through history and learn about key figures such as Da Vinci, The Wright Brothers and Amelia Earhart, finishing our learning with Flight in Space.
We will use this theme within a cross-curricular approach to learning in which Bramble class will transfer their learning of the topic across a range of subjects, developing a breadth of subject knowledge. Please see below our Curriculum map, outlining our learning journey this term.
This term, we are focusing on reaching our highest potential and putting 100% effort into each piece of work. We will be thinking about integral skills such as Perseverance, Resilience and taking Pride in work as well as supporting and motivating our peers. We are striving to improve handwriting in both Pencil and Pen- the children will get many more opportunities to write in Pen when publishing their work and make their own decisions on which tool is right for them.
We are very excited to display our Times Table Challenge wall in which the children will move their names onto the next Rosette once they have achieved that times table challenge. We are using this as an incentive for the children to keep practicing their times table and would really appreciate your continued support with this at home!
This term will consist of lots of fun and engaging activities and experiments in which the children will be provided with concrete experiences to bring their learning to life!! If you have any queries, I am always available at the end of the day or alternatively, please contact Mrs Richardson to arrange a meeting. I am looking forward to another productive and busy first term!
