Hello, we are very excited to welcome you all to Acorns' class. We have lots of fun and exciting things planned for this year.
Our topic for this half-term is 'Penguins, Possums and Pigs (I have attached a copy of the curriculum overview below).
During this topic we will be looking at hot and cold places and learning to name and locate the seven continents and five oceans.
In English we will be looking at different stories by the same author; we will be discussing main characters and events, making predictions about what might happen next and talking about our favourite parts of the story.
The author we will be looking at is Oliver Jeffers,; if you have any of his stories at home please bring them in for us to share.
We will be looking at place value (within 10) in lots of detail. We will be sorting, counting, ordering, writing and comparing numbers.
Any number work you can do with you child at home will help them; something as quick and simple as counting the stairs at home or recognising house numbers when walking will help your child to develop their understanding of the number system.
Revelation - Come to know that God loves each one always and at all times.
The Church - Discussing the relationships we have in the family, at school and our neighbours.
Life in Christ - Learning about the importance of self-esteem and having respect for others.
This term we will be having our P.E lessons on Wednesday afternoon; please ensure your child has a full P.E kit in school that has their name on.
Reading books will be changed every Tuesday; it is extremely important to read with your child at home, as well as their school reading books we encourage children to read their own books from home and to also visit the library.
I am looking forward to getting to know you and your children throughout this year. Please feel free to catch me after school if there's anything you wish to discuss.
Miss Wicklen :)
