This term in Yellow Class...
Welcome back! We hope you had a lovely half term break.
Literacy: Our key texts this term is a combination of Ossiri and the Bala Mengro (by Katharine Quarmby and Richard O’Neill) and, Olga da Polga (by Michael Bond and Catherine Rayner). We will use the Power of Reading programme of study to support our learning of both texts during our literacy lessons. We have already been having lots of fun exploring Ossiri and the Bala Mengro, using drama and role play to immerse the children in the story! The children will continue to take part in phonics sessions, revising phase 5 and looking at spelling patterns in phase 6. We also continue to practise our cursive writing learning. Please see our handwriting policy for further information on how we teach cursive writing.
Reading: Please return books on Thursday and new books will continue to be issued on Monday. It is worth noting that re-reading books is an excellent opportunity to develop fluency and expression along with comprehension.
Maths: During our ‘Maths No Problem’ lessons, we will learn about mass, temperature, money and fractions.
PE: Please note that our P.E day will remain on a Friday morning with Miss Mulholland. The children will be working on the key skills of running, jumping and throwing. The children will also have a cricket session on a Thursday morning. This session will be run by Josh from Sussex Cricket who will be supported by myself. Please wear PE kits (with trainers/plimsolls)
Spanish and Re: Miss Mulholland will continue to teach on Tuesday morning. In Spanish they will be revisiting numbers, farm animals and basic vocabulary. In RE they have been discussing different types of spirituality, religion and beliefs, including the discussion of big philosophical questions.
