Miss Brown and Mrs Wilmington
Welcome to the spring term in Dragonflies class.
We are very excited about all the new learning opportunities that await.
In English this term we will be looking at various books, fiction and non-fiction, and some with an environmental theme, to inspire some interesting pieces of writing. We will use our daily phonics lessons through ‘Letters and Sounds’ to help us develop our blending skills for reading and our segmenting skills for writing. We will be looking to develop our writing stamina and independence as well as accurately punctuating sentences and adding prefixes and suffixes to words.
In Maths we will continue to develop our knowledge of place value and numbers up to 50, finding one more and one less, and addition and subtraction. This will also include developing our fluency and recall of number bonds to 20. In addition, we will explore aspects of measure including height, length, weight, capacity and time.
Within our ‘What Price Progress?’ topic, we will explore our enquiry question ‘How can we improve the school environment?’ by investigating key human and physical features within our school environment, local area and those further afield.
We will continue to observe seasonal changes as well as learn all about plants in Science, develop our understanding and skills in colour, tone, and thick and thin lines in Art, and learn about the Christian belief in God in RE.
Please do not hesitate to contact a member of staff if you have any questions.
We look forward to learning and growing together.
