This terms RE focus will be Getting to know Jesus, Sorrow and Joy, and Growing, giving and Lent. We have been learning about how Jesus helped people and some of the amazing things he did when he was alive.
We have also been thinking about how we can be more like Jesus at home. Some children in class one have had Prayer Bear visit them at home and have shown Prayer Bear how they can be more like Jesus and have said special Prayers together.
This terms topic is Animals which we are all very excited about. We have loved hearing the story of 'Wind in the Willows' and writing our own river stories and character descriptions. We are looking forward to finding out all about the animals that live in the River Waveney and developing our own wildlife area to support and encourage our local wildlife and their habitats.
If your child is in Reception you will have noticed that they are beginning to learn their phase 3 sounds and tricky words. These are added to the children's phonics wallet as they are learnt. Please practice these each night in addition to 10 minutes reading to consolidate new learning.
This half term we will be focusing on number recognition, counting, place value and addition and subtraction. You will notice that they have been given a set of number cards from 0-20. Practice these at home as you would the sounds and see if you can put them in order. In addition to this the children will receive maths homework once every three weeks to consolidate what we have been doing in class.
