Term 2 Summary

Our ‘I wonder…’ question for the term is ‘I wonder how people celebrate’.

Our key questions to answer are:

  • What do people in our class celebrate?
  • How do different people celebrate?
  • What different celebrations are there?
  • Where in the world do the celebrations come from?

We will be introducing Drawing Club which is a very engaging and interactive way to teach English. The children will be learning some amazing and ambitious vocabulary and will be developing their understanding of mark making and early writing.

We will also be building up to our Christmas Performance which we are all very excited about!

Term 1 Summary

Our first term starts with us getting to know each other and learning the routines and rules of school. We explore the whole school and build relationships with the key adults.

We then move on to our main topic for the term, which is ‘I wonder what is in the sea?’.

Our key questions:

  • What animals live in the sea? Are they all the same?
  • Are there different seas/oceans and how can we look after them?
  • How has the seaside changed?
  • Who are the most famous pirates and where did they live?

We will be introducing and promoting our message centre, which encourages our children to mark make and give meanings to their marks. This is an early stage of writing. During this time, the children will learn about using ‘snappy fingers’ to hold their pencil and develop their fine and gross motor skills.

In the final few weeks of term, we will learn the story of ‘The Little Red Hen’ in time for Harvest.
