Our Class Text

How to Hide a Lion by Helen Stephens

 

Wider Curriculum

This half term we are learning about the countries in the United Kingdom in Geography, where they are located, their capitals, flags and key facts. In Music we are starting to look at tuned instruments and learning how to play and compose music using glockenspiels. In Art we are investigating the colour wheel, mixing different shades and using this to create our own interpretation of Mark Rothko’s work. 

 

In PE we are consolidating our skills in throwing and catching before moving on to learning how to play Matball. We will learn the rules of the game as well as teamwork skills to compete against each other in tournaments within the class.

 

Ways to help your child at home

Read, read and read some more! Your child should be reading to you at least 4 times a week in addition to you reading to them. Try to also ask them questions about what they are reading to check their understanding.

 

If your child finds the spellings easy in any week, try asking them to put them into sentences as well. We will be continuing to develop the cursive script with a focus on the size of the letters being appropriate so please use the guide in the learning log to support this.
