Knowledge Organisers

What are knowledge organisers?

Knowledge Organisers show the basic knowledge we want all children to have learnt through a topic. These are used in class as a tool to help children recall information. Please look at these with your child at home as well - they are a great way to find out more about what your child is learning. For more information click here to download our parent letter about knowledge organisers.

Our Learning

RE

Our first RE focus of Spring Term is Getting to Know Jesus.

We will be learning about who Jesus is, and how he can help us be kind, caring people. 

We will then learn about Lent, and how it is a time we can all grow, just as the things around us grow in Spring as well. 

 

Phonics

Our daily phonics sessions continue this term. Your child will continue to bring home new sounds and words as they learn them - please continue to support you child at home by practicing these daily.

Below are some links to websites that provide games to play at home as well as support and information on helping your child with phonics.

Our English work this term will start off thinking about instruction writing as we learn how to make pancakes! We will practice giving and writing clear instructions, focusing on new vocabulary.

 

We will then start to explore Beccles. We will practice writing information about things, for example our favourite places in Beccles.

 

We will then read and share the book Katie in London. We will compare Beccles with London and practice more information writing, sharing facts we learn about the capital city.
