Linnets

Welcome to Linnets Class!

Our teacher is Mrs Tickner, and we are supported brilliantly by Mrs Lannin every day. Mrs Kandes and Miss Kee teach us on a Wednesday morning.  

Any of the teachers would be delighted to speak to you if you have any concerns, big or small. 

This term… 

This term our topic is Little Red Riding Hood. We will be memorising and retelling the story of Little Red Riding Hood and exploring the key features of traditional tales.  We will then move on to writing recipes for making delicious treats! We will finish the term by writing autumn poems using adjectives. 

In maths, we will be recapping our learning from foundation by looking at operations within 10. We will be ordering, sorting, adding and subtracting numbers to 10. 

In science, we are focusing on animals. We will be observing the animals that live around our school. We will be making our own bird feeders to help us look at the different kinds of birds that live in our area.

In geography, we will be learning to draw a bird's eye view of our school. Later on in the term, we will start our new history topic all about the Gunpowder Plot!

During PE lessons, we will be following the ‘Real PE’ programme. This term focuses on ball skills and partner balance, whilst preparing a dance! PE will be taking place every Monday and Wednesday.  

Wild Tribe is a fantastic opportunity for the children to learn outdoor skills and will be taking place on alternate Wednesdays. We will be learning key outdoor skills such as fire lighting, den building and using outdoor tools. Please ensure that the children have a warm waterproof coat and wellington boots.
