What are we learning about this term?
Our literacy lessons this year will begin with a focus on fiction tales. We will be reading ‘The BFG’ by Roald Dahl as our class book and we will be learning the story of the Gingerbread man which we hope to preform in our coffee morning.
We will use the Gingerbread man story as inspiration to write recipies, posters, poems, postcards and fiction tales of our own . We will find out about materials by making puppets for our puppet theatre and will work on our safety in the kitchen, baking gingerbread men and many other healthy treats. We will explore traditional tales from Wales too beginning with a visit from Theatre Clwyd to teach us how we came to have a red dragon on our flag and to tell the tales of the great wizard Merlin. Outside we have been lucky enough to have our new outdoor area with plenty of room to learn through play outside! We look forward to learning about our new outdoor area and will be busy making, crafting and sorting all the loose parts, toys and games we want to go outside with our teachers help. We will also be learning how to care for our environment and about respecting our toys, nature and animals. We will develop maths, sport, geography, art and ICT skills along the way to.
Learning at home
Reading at home is very important. We ask you to read with your child as often as you can. The school reading book will be sent home for the weekend, we would love for you fill in the reading record. The reading record will allow you to see when we read with your child, as well as letting us know what lovely books your child enjoys reading with you at home. There will be other homework sent home when it is relevant as we understand how busy weekends can be! We would be greatful if you could return book bags by Tuesday to ensure there is enough time to check reading logs and change books ready for Friday.
