Welcome to Rabbits!
I hope you all had a fantastic Easter holiday! I can’t wait to hear all about it!
Our new topic this half term is, “Life in the Freezer!” where we will learn about the Arctic. The children will learn about the climate of the Arctic, the physical features, the animals and will find out which countries make up the Arctic circle. They will then compare the Arctic to the United Kingdom which links with their previous topic where they learnt about their local area and the United Kingdom.
In science we will be learning about plants. The children will label the parts of the plants and will complete some very exciting science experiments which centre around growing plants.
In English, we will be writing a persuasive leaflet. The trip to the Snowdome will be used to inspire the children to write a persuasive leaflet about going to the Snowdome. The Write Stuff scheme of learning will be used to support the children’s writing.
There will also be many reading opportunities for the children. We will have an afternoon a week focused on reading where the children will be able to read one to one to an adult as well as working in guided reading groups supported by an adult and engaging in various independent reading activities. We make sure children are reading their school reading books every day. Please ensure you are reading with your child as much as you can to support the progress that they are making. A variety of books will also be read to the whole class daily. The children will also engage in whole class reading where the children will read a school reading book together as a class. Phonics will be taught twice a day every day apart from Thursdays where it will be taught once in the day and we will be following the phonics scheme, ‘Sounds Write’. Children will have phonics cards come home with them every Friday so please read through the words with your child.
Mathematics will primarily focus on measurement. The children will learn about time. They will sequence events and look at the days of the week and months of the year. They will then begin to tell the time to the nearest hour and half an hour. The children will then move onto looking at mass/weight and looking at the comparison of mass and starting to record it.
In RSHE the children will move onto citizenship where they will learn about the importance of rules and the consequences from not following them; caring for the needs of babies, young children and animals; exploring similarities and differences and an introduction to democracy.
PE will take place on Monday mornings and Thursday afternoons. The children will have dance lessons on a Monday morning and will have multisports on a Thursday afternoon. Children will need to come to school in their P.E kit on a Monday and a Thursday. On a Thursday afternoon, the children will have a P.E lesson with one of our P.E coaches and will have an R.E lesson with Mrs Hart for the second part of the afternoon.
