Our topic this half term is:
This half term, our topic will be ‘Dinosaur Planet,’ in which the children will start to explore and learn about dinosaurs in greater detail. On Monday 10th September we will be having a 'Dinosaur Day' to launch the topic where the children will have a dance and drama workshop travelling back in time to meet different dinosaurs! (Please pay £5 for this workshop on ParentPay). Later in the half term, the children will be learning about Mary Anning and her fossil discoveries, as well as identifying where fossils have been found on a world map. In Science, they will be looking at the differences between carnivores, herbivores and omnivores.
During English lessons this half term, the children will be looking at a range of fiction and non-fiction texts linked to dinosaurs and will have the opportunity to practice and improve their phonics, spelling and grammar to write sentences. In Maths lessons we will be focusing on counting and ordering numbers, as well as looking in depth at place value.
Homework is set on a Friday and is to be returned by Wednesday the following week.
Please ensure your child's PE kit is in school at all times. They will be sent home at the end of each term to be washed.
Thank you parents and carers for supporting your children at home with their reading and phonics. It really does make a difference.
