Our topic this term will be…
The Owl and the Pussycat
In Literacy, we are learning about classical poetry. The children are learning to recite a poem.
Ask your child to tell you the poem and show you the actions.
The children have learnt the poem 'Please Mrs Butler' and performed it for the rest of the class.
We will be discussing the similarities and differences between the poems using different sentence openers to develop our language. These will include 'They are similar because they both have...' 'They are different because this has... but this has...'
In Maths, we will be learning about money. We will be challenging the children to make the same amount using different coins and if they can make an amount using the smallest number of coins. In our work on time the children will be learning to read the time on an analogue clock to the nearest 5 minutes.
Please remind your child to wear their watch to school everyday.
We have also been collecting data and finding different ways to present this to others.
In Science, we are finding out how animals obtain their food from plants and other animals. We are looking at simple food chains and identifying and naming different sources of food.
Look out for pictures from our visit from Lancashire Hawks and Owls.
As part of our learning about animals and food chains, we had a very special visit from Lancashire Owls and Hawks. We touched the owls and they felt really soft. Some of us also got to hold the owls. Did you know that when we clapped, the barn owl danced? You can find out about the owls we held at www.lancashirehawksandowls.co.uk
In Geography, we are learning the names of the seven continents and five oceans of the world. We are using world maps, atlases and globes to identify the Equator, North Pole and South Pole.
In Computing, we are learning to use a search engine to find information on the Internet. We will also continue our work on staying safe online.
The following website has some very useful information for Parents on how to ensure your child is safe online.
