This term we will be starting with a learning all about 'Ourselves.' We will be using the story of 'Elmer' to help us celebrate our differences. After a few weeks we will move onto to learn all about 'Toby and the Great Fire of London.' We will be using small world, story sacks and puppets to help us with this.
In maths, we will be looking at place value to 10,20,50 and 100. We will be looking at numbers and how many tens and ones make up each two digit number.
In PE we will be exploring dance as a way of expressing the different changing seasons and listening to different pieces of music and adapting our dance styles and expressions accordingly. Outdoor PE will consist of learning the fundamentals of ball skills to help our hand and eye coordination. We will also be following a sequence of orienteering lessons, looking at compass and map work to support our understanding of position.
We will be following our successful 'Talk for Writing' programme, whereby the children will learn the language and actions of the story, so that they can get to know the story really well and retell it to others. As a class, we will change one aspect of the story and then the children will invent their own.
