Autumn Term 2019

The topic this term is ‘Animal Magic!’ The children will use a variety of methods (e.g. maps, Google earth, globes and internet research) to find out about animals and zoos all over the world. They will also visit Chester zoo. They will explore climate in different places and learn that animals’ physical appearances reflects their habitat. They will learn the 7 continents of the world. In November, we will learn about Bonfire Night by learning about The Gunpowder Plot. In Music, they will learn songs about animals and will experiment with changing rhymes and songs. In Art they will create a sketchbook and practise using a range of media to explore animal patterns. They will look at famous artists such as Henri Rousseau, Franz Marc and Pablo Picasso. In Design Technology, the children will explore moving books and will design, make and  evaluate their own animal themed book. The children will regularly use computers and will learn how to stay safe when using the internet, by following the SMART rules.

PE: All children need to make sure they have their P.E kit in school fro Tuesday. Their PE kit will be sent home on a Tuesday in preparation for their second lesson, starting at 9 am Thursday morning. Children will need to come dressed in their PE kit. They should bring their uniform to school in their PE bag. Please make sure that all of their P.E kit is labelled. This includes a pair of plain, white socks , pumps or trainers, plain navy shorts and a plain white t-shirt. Navy tracksuit bottoms are optional to wear during colder days when outside for PE.
Tuesday- Invasion games
Thursday - Games (outdoors when possible with the PE coach)

Swimming: This will take place during the Summer term only.

Homework: We always give out new homework on a Friday. To give us the opportunity to mark and look at their homework, we ask that all children need to hand in their homework by the following  Thursday at the latest. Please return in the plastic bag labelled 'Homework'.. 
                                                       
Spelling Test: Thursday - Children will be given 10 spellings to learn every week. They will follow the LOOK, COVER, WRITE, CHECK method to help them learn their spellings. You will be notified about their score via the homelink book

 

Homelink books: These must be handed in every morning so that we can receive any important messages or to record if your child has read. 

Reading - If your child has read three times or more a week their name will go into a chance box. They will then be in for a chance of winning a prize. Ideally, children in Year 1 need to read daily in order to reach the expected standard and prepare them for Year 2. By the end of Year 2, children are expected to read books fluently; reading words on sight.

 

 

Many Thanks
