Welcome back to Spring 1

I hope you all have had a lovely break.

We have had a brilliant start in Autumn term in Emerald class, the children have made new friends, developed their confidence and are happy. This is making Emerald class a special place full of laughter, fun and learning.

Our new topic this term is ‘Space’. This topic provides the children with the opportunity to explore planets, the sun and learn about specialist careers. They will use different methods, such as ICT and nonfiction books to find information linked to space and astronauts. Reading and writing activities such as fact files and diary entries will support the children in these areas.

In literacy, we will use core books to support us with our learning. We will write ways we can catch a star when reading ‘How to Catch a Star’ and write a letter to the Martian in ‘The Way Back Home’.
In maths, we are focusing on counting, recognising and writing numbers to 10. We will use Numicon to help the children to understand the value of these numbers. We also learn composition of numbers to 5.

In RE we will answer the big question ‘Why is Jesus special to Christians?’ learning about his life and miracles.
