A very big welcome to our children and their families, as well as other visitors to our page!
Our connected- curriculum theme for terms 5 and 6 is ‘Air’. During the term we will be learning about growing and what living things need to help them become healthy and to grow. In addition, we will be exploring life-cycles. We will also be developing the children’s interest in minibeasts and using this as a stimulus to develop our vocabulary, language and literacy skills. After that, we will explore some of the ways people use air to travel. In Maths, we will be securing our number skills and using them to understand calculation and developing our vocabulary when adding, subtracting, doubling and halving.
Class newsletters that will be sent home weekly, these will outline what we have been learning about that week. We will not be setting formal homework, however we hope that the weekly outline will offer an insight into your child’s week at school and offer opportunities for you to carry out activities with your child at home relating to those topics. Learning is always more valuable when it is meaningful to your child and by reinforcing what we have been learning in school at home, you can support this. I hope that we can work together to make your child’s first year at school as valuable and inspiring as possible, creating firm foundations for them to build-upon as they move on through the school.
Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any queries, we can always arrange an appointment to meet and discuss any issues or concerns you may have. We look forward to an exciting and busy term in Everest Class.
