Our 'Story to Tell' this term is
'The Shopping Basket' by John Burningham. We have really enjoyed reading together and learning what the characters say using different voices. We have learned the meaning of new words like clumsy and hurried. To help your child, please ask them to use these new words in sentences.
We will use this story to write our own in the same style.
We will also be writing non-chronological reports on the importance of eating healthily and staying fit.
Take a look at the work we have produced in ICT where we have used a software package to produce our own shopping baskets.
In Maths, we have been learning what the place value of each digit in a two-digit number is. We have also been using our number bonds to help deepen our understanding of place value.
We will identify and describe the properties of 2D and 3D shapes. We will identify lines of symmetry in 2D shapes. We will also solve problems involving multiplication and division.
In Computing, we have learnt about the importance of staying safe online, how we need to keep our personal information private and also where to go for help if we are concerned.
As a Rights Respecting School, we will be looking at Article 19: Every child has the right to be protected from harm.

In Art, we have created images from a variety of media e.g. photocopies material, fabric, crepe paper, magazines and arranged and glued them together to produce a collage.
We have been using words including tearing, folding, scrunching and ripping. Ask your child if they can explain the meaning of these words or show you an action.
In R.E we will be answering the questions 'How do we respond to things that really matter?' and 'What do special stories teach worshipers and others?'
We will be discussing how we look after natural resources and what we can do as responsible citizens to take care of the world. We will also look at the story of Creation and how Christians celebrate Harvest Festival.

We have been learning the Song of the Week and have come up with some actions to share with the rest of the school.
In P.E we will be taking part in invasion games. We have begun to develop skills of underarm throwing, catching, dodging and passing. We are excited to play team games to be able to apply these skills.
