Fox Class

 
Spring 2018
 
Happy New Year to you all.  We hope you had a lovely Christmas.  

Curriculum Outline
         
Numeracy
In Maths there will be an emphasis on practical activities and   problem solving, as well as using a wide range of apparatus.  Number work will include counting in twos,   threes, fives and tens.  We will be   continuing work on addition and subtraction and looking for patterns.  We will be finding fractions of shapes and   numbers.  The children will be using   money to find totals and start to give change.   They will be sorting and interpreting data   using a variety of methods.  
Please   help your child to form their numbers correctly at home (they all start at   the top!).  
        
Literacy
This term literacy will include the teaching   of fiction, non-fiction and poetry.  
The children will continue to be having a   daily phonics/spelling session and will be grouped according to their need.
The children will read regularly in class.  Each child will read to Mrs Ward or Miss   Brown at least once every fortnight, as well as to other adults in the   classroom whenever possible.     Sometimes we will hear your child read   individually, but sometimes they will be heard in a 'guided group'.  During this guided reading session the   children will spend time discussing what they have read, helping to develop   higher level reading skills.
  
The children have the opportunity to change   their reading book every day. Please   remind your child to put their book bag in the ‘green box’ in the classroom   if it needs to be changed. We will only change a book if an adult has   signed the reading diary to say the book has been completed at home. Thank   you for your continued support with reading.
  
Weekly spellings will be handed out on a Monday (on a   sheet) and tested the following Monday (in the yellow spelling book).  
       
Knowledge and   Understanding of the World
  
Our   topic this term is ‘Travel’.   Through this the children will learn about the history of transport and   travel and associated significant people.    They will carry out traffic surveys and learn about road safety from a   visiting speaker. We will study bridge and vehicle   design and manufacture, we will also make and test models of our own.
 
In   RE we will learn about the   importance of Easter to Christians.
 
In Science we will be looking at 'use of   everyday materials’.  This will include   identifying and naming a range of materials, suggesting why materials might   or might not be used for a specific job and exploring how shapes can be   changed.  
 
The children will continue to learn German using the ‘Dinocrocs’ scheme   and German songs.
 
The   children will be using ICT in most   curriculum areas. We will be having a go at taking, selecting and editing   digital images, as well as researching topics.  

PSHE
Our topic this term is ‘Keeping Safe and Making Choices’.    
            
Physical
  
The children will take part mainly in   gymnastics this term.  Please ensure   that your children have named PE kits which are suitable for inside and outside   lessons (just in case we go outside if the hall is in use).  Ideally the children each need a navy or   white t-shirt, navy or black shorts, tracksuit bottoms and a sweatshirt.  If girls are wearing tights, please   remember to provide a pair of socks.  Children   need trainers for outside.  Children   with long hair must tie it back and no earrings are allowed to be worn.  P.E. this term will usually be on Tuesdays   and Fridays but please make sure the P.E. kits are in school all week.  .  
       
 
 
Reading
 
Please try and hear your child read every day at home (including in the holidays).  We really do see a big difference in the children’s progress when they do this.  Well done to all the children who read over the Christmas holidays!  Please also make sure that your child has a book bag rather than a rucksack - we don't have space to store these.  Thank you.  
 
 
Homework
 
Year 1s will continue to be given a Maths game each week.  Please make sure your child brings their game back on a Friday in order to receive a new one.
 
Y2 homework will continue to be given out every other Friday in their homework books.  
 

        

 
 
Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions or worries.
