Autumn Two: If you go down into the woods, what will you find?
This term is going to be very exciting indeed! We will be looking closely at the world around us and the changes we notice during autumn. We will be learning about different colours and investigating what happens to the leaves during autumn. We will be learning about how animals prepare for the winter, what the word hibernation means and which animals hibernate.
This half term the school focus is collaboration and we will be learning how to work together to be successful in our learning and ensure we are all equal parts of our Bees team. We will also be learning about different cultures this half term in particular, special celebrations such as Diwali and Christmas.
In Maths we will continue learning all about different numbers, how to read and write them but also their value making number sin different ways. We will also learn about repeating patterns and capacity. We will explore different containers using full, empty and half full to describe the different capacities.
In English we will be using a variety of stories to support our understanding of story structure. We will continue to tell 'Helicopter Stories' building our own stories using ideas from stories read. We will also continue to familiarise ourselves with the 'Tales Toolkit' as an approach to story writing.
As well as all this learning and fun we will be getting ready to perform our Natiuvity performance at Blackburn Cathedral! We will tell you more information nearer the time to ensure you don't miss the opportunity to see your child shine!
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 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 Tuesdays, 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.
