Mrs Jones Mrs Cheetham
We are looking forward to our time in Jellyfish and we have lots of exciting activities and lessons planned.
Our topic question for the Autumn Term is:
Would you rather live in Mansfield or Antartica?
During our geography lessons, we will be comparing physical and human features of Mansfield and Anatartica. We will learn where in the world Anatartica and Mansfield are and how the world is divided up. During this topic, we will be visiting Mansfield and discussing why it is not possible for us to go to Antartica.
In art, we are learning how to explore colours and think about which one is our favourite. By the end of the lessons, we will be able to mix primary colours to make secondary colours and create a colour wash background and collage picture.
Our computing work will as always involve work around e-safety and knowing how to stay safe online. Our main focus will be Online Safety and Exploring Purple Mash.
In English we will be looking at fiction text and poetry. We will be retelling and writing our own stories. The texts we will be using are Can't You Sleep Little Bear, Where The Wild Things Are, Elmer and Winter Poetry.
In Reading we will be focusing on developing our reading skills and linking this with answering questions about a text.
This term we will be focusing on place value, addition, subtraction and shape. This will involve, counting, reading and writing numbers forwards and backwards to 10. We shall be using our number bonds to help us solve addition and subtraction calculations. In addition to this, we will be naming, recognising and sorting 2D and 3D shapes.
In Science we will be learning about two different topics in the Autumn Term. The first topic is called Using Our Senses and we will be exploring our 5 senses and how they work. In the second half term our topic will be called Looking At Animals and their bodies.
Our circle time work will center around discussing friendships and what makes them happy and healthy. During this we will also discuss anti-bullying strategies and ways to promote equality and inclusion.
In our PE lessons we will be focusing on dance, yoga and multi-skills. For these exciting activities, we are lucky to receive outside coaching.
We will be having RE days, where we will be learning about Hinduism, The Nativity Story and Eid-al-Fitr.
