Spring Term Topic:
The focus of the Sensation Safari topic will be a science focus studying animals from the jungle, including habitat, food chains and identifying living and non-living things. We will also be carrying out a Geography focus, comparing Wolverley to Kenya and carrying out some local area fieldwork. The topic will cover many areas of the National Curriculum and will give the children a cross curricular approach to their learning. As part of the topic I will be organising a visit to All Thing Wild in Honeybourne, where children will see some of the animals from Africa forst hand, and will also have an education session linked to animals and their habitats as well as an animal encounters session.
Our whole class reading text will be 'The Butterfly Lion' by Michael Morpurgo.
We will be doing PE on Tuesday and Thursday mornings with Mr McDonnell - please ensure PE kits are in school on these days. Also - long hair needs to be tied up on PE days.
TT Rockstars homework is set each week, and top performing children will receive certificates during our 'Celebrations' on a Friday afternoon.
We will change reading books on a Monday and Thursday. If you have read your book to the end, reading it again can improve fluency and understanding of the text. Free readers will be able to change their books when they finish them, with guidance from either Mrs Harrison or Mrs Hemming.
Spellings will be set on a Friday to be tested the following Friday. Please support your child by practising their spellings with them.
