Topic 2 - Toys
For the first half of the Spring term we will be using our toy topic to help us with our history. We will be thinking and learning about:
History of toys:
* Identifying similarities and differences between ways of life in different periods.
* Comparing old and new toys.
* Ordering toys on a timeline from oldest to newest.
Literacy: We will be writing simple sentences and learning about what makes a good sentence, including adding capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. We will also be learning about adjectives and how to add them into our sentences to make them more interesting. We will be writing in different contexts such as creating narratives and writing list poems about winter.
Phonics: We will have daily phonics lessons following the Read, Write, Inc. programme. We will be learning the phase 5 graphemes and phonemes.
Addition & Subtraction - The children will apply their understanding of place value to their new units on addition and subtraction. They will use resources to help them solve problems and be able to confidently write their number sentences.
Shape – Learning about 2D shapes and practising our shape recognition.
IT: We have IT in the IT suite and also have access to laptops in class during the mornings. We will be practising logging on to the computers, practising mouse control and learning to type.
PE: Indoors on Tuesday. Outdoor PE on Thursday afternoons - weather dependent!
Art: This half term in art we will be learning about textiles. We will design, plan and sew our very own Christmas decorations to sell at the Christmas fair.
