Key Stage 1

In English this half term we will be focusing on the very current topic of wildfires in Australia. We will use our core text which is a beautiful poem ’Fire’ written by Jackie French. Children will learn and recite the poem with a focus on expressing emotions through our voice and body movements. We are excited to record our poem in our new green screen with great cross curricular opportunities with computing.

Our focus in Maths will be exploring 2D and 3D shapes and telling time at o’clock, quarter past, half past and quarter to. We will also tell the time in 5 minute intervals. Children will use their knowledge of the four operations to solve arithmetic questions and problem solve.

In Computing we are learning about algorithms and conditional statements.

We are learning about Christianity in RE, focusing on the Easter celebration and their place of worship.

In Music we will be learning a song, looking at tone and pitch. We will also include musical instruments and work towards a final performance at the end of term.

We will be exploring different shading techniques in Art using different graded pencils and oil pastels.

We welcome parental involvement in the life of our school. If you are able to visit the school or help in any way, please contact your child’s class teacher.
