This term in Blue Class...
We are blasting off into the summer term by building and launching our own rocket models! This will start our learning journey, From A to B, which focuses on travel and transport and how these have changed over time. We will immerse ourselves into all things transport themed; finding out how we travel to school, about different modes of transport in the past, how to create their own futurist painting to capture the speed and movement of transport, about the sounds different modes of transport make, how to cross roads safely and how children around the world travel to school. Part of our learning will take us on a walk around the local area. Here we will look at the human and physical features of our local environment and we will then create maps of the area we explored. Please take time to read our curriculum letter and topic web for detailed information on all of our learning and ideas for home learning activities.
In Phonics we will be busy reading real and alien words and learning lots of alternative phonemes for graphemes already covered. In Maths, we will be dipping into our new maths initiative Maths –No Problem! In PSHE we will be working on our Feeling Good Feeling Safe programme.
