After a fantastic enrichment week we are now excitedly finding out about our new topic ‘Frozen Footsteps’. This is a fabulous topic packed with Science and Geography. A range of high quality texts will be used to help engage and enthuse our learning. The children will benefit from reading and writing a range of fiction and non-fiction books to develop their written stamina and comprehension skills and Immi, a character form our first story will help lead us through our learning journey.
This topic lends itself to habitat and classification of animals. We will also be using polar bears and their habitat to help the children understand how many animals natural habitats are under threat. We will use Dear Greenpeace to help us gently tackle this global issue.
In Maths we will be recapping on some of our learning from the Autumn Term but also moving on to multiplication, division and fractions.
Reading at home is vitally important in developing and nurturing the children as readers. Ideally we would love for you to be able to listen to and read with your children everyday however we understand this is not always possible so we would recommend a minimum of reading three times a week. For any family wanting more homework each child does have a Home/School book for spellings and this year reading records have been replaced with reading journal so the children can write reviews , describe characters, draw pictures and complete other reading related activities.
If you have any questions about the topic this term then please do come and see me. Once again I would like to thank you for your continued support.
