Walk to school challenge

* * * Well Done! * * *



RB won class of the month for walking to school every day in March.




We love reading, especially in Mrs Hall’s special reading club!

Summer 1


This half term our story to tell is 'The Queen's Hat' 

In Literacy, we will be learning the story with actions, creating a story map and innovating on the story.

We will then create a new story map with our new characters and setting.


We will be reading the story of ' The Great Chicken   Mystery'. In Engineering,  the children will be designing hen houses to stop the naughty fox getting to the hens. 



To link with our Expressive Art and Design, the we will be learning different ways to join materials and developing various finishing techniques.

To develop our understanding of The World we will be finding out about a variety of animals, where they live and how to care for them. We will be looking for signs of Spring and drawing our observations. To link with our whole school concept of change we will be exploring the life cycles of some of these animals and plants.

We will look at where some of our food comes from and link with the whole school concept of trade whilst exploring fair trade. This gives the children the knowledge they need to promote their individual liberty, whether they choose to buy fair trade products.

Our key question for the term is:


Who does the world belong to?



Our PSED learning will include reading stories which will promote discussions about sharing our world. 



We will be looking at our environment and how we can make it a better place. This links to our whole school concept of citizen.


 We will be linking these discussions to Article 24- Every child has the right to  good quality heath care, clean water and good food.


We will be preparing our children for the leadership roles they will be taking on when they move into Year 1 by learning about what a leader is, what makes a good leader and whether anyone can be a leader. This links to our whole school concept of citizen and the British Values Rule of Law and Democracy.

During Maths, we will be developing our calculating, learning more about addition and subtraction. We will the part-part and whole method to assist with reading calculations.  We will be exploring how to calculate using 10 frames. We will also be learning how to work out number stories and problems. 


We are going to learn about sharing numbers into equal groups. 


Our Shape, Space and Measure aspect of maths will be learning our 3D shapes and looking at the different properties.

During Music, the children will be exploring different types of music and listening and discussing funk music.  We will be learning a song called Big Bear Funk.  

The children will be exploring rhythm and playing different musical instruments too.
