Up in the air - Space
Special Places- Visit to church
SEAL(Social and Emotional aspects of Learning)
This week the children will be learning about space. The children will learn the names of different planets and create representations using paper machie.
In literacy the children will listen to the story ‘Whatever next.’ The story is about a Baby Bear who wants to go to the moon and so searches around the house until he finds a rocket (a cardboard box), a space-helmet (a colander) and space-boots (his wellies). Baby bear blasts off out of the chimney and into the night. Joined by an owl, Baby Bear soars high into the night sky until finally they reach the moon. Of course, when he returns to earth for his bath, his mother doesn't believe where he has been.
The children will sequence the story and write a sentence for each picture, focusing on capital letters, finger spaces and full stop.
During this week, we will carry out a progress check in relation to the children’s phonological knowledge and understanding. We will assess single sounds, double sounds, high frequency words and tricky words. If we feel that there are gaps in your child’s knowledge, then we will let you know and it would be helpful if you could spend time with your child, practising reading and writing certain key words during the half term.
Project X guided reading sessions will continue this week, focusing again on developing the children’s ability to blend words for reading and segment words for spelling. The children will also continue to develop their ability to write coherent sentences and use simple punctuation.
On Monday the children will spend the day learning about special places. The children will have the opportunity to talk about a place that is special to them. We will also walk up to the church and explore the features inside.
In mathematical development we are recapping telling the time, focusing on o’clock, half past and quarter two/ quarter past.
On Tuesday the 21st May (3:00pm) please pop into class to see the childrens work on display.
Have a lovely half term break.
