We have an exciting but busy year ahead of us!
We are currently learning to write instructions. Our focus text is:
How To Get Ready For School
We are enjoying reading a range of books as a class. These are the books we have already read:
So far this year, we have been learning about how numbers are built and how they can be represented in a range of different ways. We are currently securing our place value knowledge and will be moving on to addition and subtraction methods.
Our topic this half term has been animals including humans. We have learnt what animals need to survive, different life cycles and the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
Homework is sent out every Wednesday and collected in every Monday. We hand out a maths piece, spelling piece and daily reading is encouraged whenever possible. The children will also receive a topic homework at the start of each half term. These are collected in fortnightly and we love seeing the amazing things your children (and you) create. Where timings allow we encourage the children to share these with the class.
Willow class have PE every Wednesday so please ensure that PE kits are kept in school. We will send them home at the end of every half term and term.
Our topic this half term is superheroes.
The children have enjoyed creating their own superhero masks, learning about Florence Nightingale and comparing how hospitals have changed over time.
