Our enquiry question for this half term is:

 

'Why are carrots orange?'

 This is an exciting half term for the children as we have lots of exciting activities and interesting topics to learn about. This half term will allow children to explore fruit and vegetables and where they grow. Children will also be creating their own soup and writing a recipe for it. Children will be trying a range of fruit and vegetables that they might not have tried before and discuss their favorites. 

 

We will be introducing this topic to the children by transforming vegetables into superheros! Children will plan, design and make their own vegetable superhero by using lots of different resources and material. Children will then use their own characters and create a story.  Following on from this the children will be introduced to the story of 'Supertato.' This will allow children to explore different characters, settings, problems and the solutions of a story. They will use tales toolkit to be able to change and adapt their own story. The children will be looking at at story which explore another culture, Handa's Surprise. 

 

In Maths we will be using our knowledge of number to begin to understand and make number bonds using lots of practical resources. We will be looking at problem solving using these number facts and developing our reasoning within these problems. Children will be exploring pattern and symmetry.

How you can help at home :)

 

Read with your child every night, talk through and discuss the story and characters. 
Counting regularly with your child, both forwards and backwards. If they read every night they will get dojos in school as a reward.
Ask your child about their day, we do lots of different activities throughout the day and they will love to share.
Ensure your child's book bag is in school everyday.
Complete the homework given out on a Friday with them, this reflects the learning throughout the week.

 

Please use the handwriting sheet given on Parent's Evening to practise handwriting daily with your child at home. If you would like a sheet please ask at the door.

 

Please ensure your child brings in their book bag every day. Also make sure that you check these bags every night for any messages or letters that might have been given out. Please can you make sure that you label all of your child’s clothes, this includes all parts of their uniform, PE kits, coats and shoes, as this helps us to find the owner of the item much faster!! We have PE on Wednesdays, please ensure your child's PE kit is in school.

 

You will receive newsletters and information from school regularly, however, if you have and questions or queries please do not hesitate to speak to me.

Thank you

Miss Oxendale
