We hope you have all had a lovely holiday. We have lots of exciting things planned for this half term. In history we will be learning about the invention of the television. Do you know who invented television and when they did it?
We will also be visiting the National Media Museum in Bradford. We will be finding out lots more about how televisions work and taking part in two workshops. Thank you to everyone who has already returned their permission slips. We need lots of parents and carers to accompany us on this visit. Please let us know if you would like to join us. We will also be learning about the Queen’s Coronation and we are going to have fun re enacting this celebration. More details will follow soon.
In literacy we will be doing a unit of work based on story writing. We will be using story mountains and creating our own simple stories. We will also be reading the story of Cinderella and basing some of our writing on this book. Remember you can bring different versions of this story to share with your class – please make sure that your name is written inside it. In our design and technology lessons we will be designing and creating a moving vehicle – we will be making Royal carriages and cars.
In science we are investigating and sorting materials. We will be using this information to help us create floating and flying knickers for the Queen!!
We will be doing lots of practical maths activities this half term including capacity and money. We will also be doing place value, subtraction and addition tasks. We will be practising counting in 2s, 5s and 10s and our number bonds to 10.
Phew! Another busy half term and we’ve not even mentioned all the exciting activities we have planned for Christmas!
We are looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow.
