What are we learning about this term?

This term our topic is Pirates. We will be reading the book called The Troll, which is a mixture of The Three Billy Goats Gruff and pirates. We will also be working on the book The Billy Goats Gruff and producing our own story by changing the characters. We will be continuing to work on our phonic sounds- ch, sh, th, ng, ee, ea, ay, ai, oy. We will be blending lots of words to read and spell.


We will also be looking for signs of Spring and Summer. We are hoping that there will be some tadpoles in the pond soon that we can bring into class and watch them change into frogs. We will be planting sunflower seeds and learning the parts of a plant. We will be making pirate maps and writing message in a bottle.


In Maths we will continue to practice our numbers and counting. We will be learning the names of 3d shapes. We will be counting in 10s and 2’s. We will be using positional language and doing some coding on the computers. We will be adding and taking away and working with money. We will be measuring our sunflowers using non standard units.
