Curriculum Map

Picture 1

Wow that half term went very quickly! We hope that you all enjoyed the weeks break and had lots of fun!

 

This term our topic is called, ‘Whizz Bang’. It is a science based topic which is linked to celebrations such as Diwali and Bonfire night. To help us each week will have a different focus, these are listed below:

Week one: Diwali

Week two: Bonfire Night/fireworks

Week three: Night and day

Week four: Shadows

Week five: Light and dark colours

Week six: Light toys and circuits

Week seven: Christmas

Week eight: Christmas

During these weeks we will do lots of creative activities. We will create firework art, clay divas and make different coloured lights using torches.

 

For Literacy this term our main text is, ‘The Gingerbread Man’.  Pupils will work on their speaking listening, reading and writing skills linked to the text. This will also involve some creative activities to help our fine motor skills and sensory activities such as writing in shaving foam to support our handwriting skills. In addition to this we will also carry out, ‘Write Dance’, which is an approach and method that provides movement opportunities so children can develop the physical skills needed to develop their handwriting skills. The movement is driven by music and the aim is to also build confidence. Literacy is also encompassed with handwriting and phonics. In phonics we will continue to learn the letter sounds and encourage children to read by segmenting and blending the words.

 

In maths we will be covering the areas of number, geometry and measure. We will cover these areas and link them to topic making the lessons fun and engaging.

 

In cookery this term we are making short crust/filo pastry tarts. We will make them with different fillings each week. This will incorporate different skills such as rolling, using cutters and spreading fillings.

 

I will update the page regularly with pictures of the children enjoying their learning so that you can see their journey as we go through the year.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to write in the home/school book.

Our Facial Features

We did an activity where all our pictures had been cut up, and we then had to think carefully how to put them together again. We needed to know where all our facial features went! We checked them using the white board to help us. Look at our lovely faces!

Welcome to Parrot Class. My name is Tabitha and I am the class teacher. In my team, the staff include, Amy who is our TA2 and three TA1’s, Rachel, Rebecca and Anne. We have nine children in Parrot class, they are; Sara, Alfie, Lawrence, Kian, Ike, Mackenzie, Luca, Harley and Harry.

 

During the first week of school we got to know each other and started to work as a team. The children all settled well and are working hard following the daily routine of the classroom.

 

This term our topic is called, ‘All about me’. It is a great topic to start the year as we can learn lots about each other. To help us each week will have a different focus, these are listed below:

Week one: Getting to know each other and settling back into school.

Week two: likes and dislikes

Week three: friends and ourselves

Week four: family

Week five: senses

Week six: senses

Week seven: our body

During these weeks we will do lots of creative activities. We will use our senses by experimenting with sight, taste, touch, smell and hearing. We will learn about looking after our bodies, making healthy choices and our body parts.

 

For Literacy this term our main text is, ‘The Monkey Puzzle’, by Julia Donaldson. Pupils will work on their speaking listening, reading and writing skills linked to the text. This will also involve some creative activities to help our fine motor skills and sensory activities such as writing in shaving foam to support our handwriting skills. In addition to this we will also carry out, ‘Write Dance’, which is an approach and method that provides movement opportunities so children can develop the physical skills needed to develop their handwriting skills. The movement is driven by music and the aim is to also build confidence. Literacy is also encompassed with handwriting and phonics. In phonics we will continue to learn the letter sounds and encourage children to read by segmenting and blending the words.

 

In maths we will be covering the areas of number, geometry and measure. We will cover these areas and link them to topic making the lessons fun and engaging.

 

In cookery this term we are making sandwiches and the skills to make them such as spreading for example and making choices regarding fillings. The children will be encouraged to become more independent each week and the aim by the end of week seven is that the children will not need any adult input

 

I will update the page regularly with pictures of the children enjoying their learning so that you can see their journey as we go through the year.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to write in the home/school book.
