Welcome to Siskins Class!
Our teacher is Mrs Bridden and we are supported brilliantly by Mrs Harvey 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.
Welcome to the second half of our spring term. This term our topic is The Three Little Pigs and our learning will be based around our knowledge of where we live. In English, we will be retelling the story of The Three Little Pigs and writing our own version of our focus text, 'Pigs Might Fly'. We will be making sure that we use capital letters and full stops as well as making our writing more descriptive by using adjectives, similes and time adverbials.
In maths, we will be working with numbers up to 50. We will be partitioning numbers into tens and ones and counting multiples of 10. Then we will move onto learning about measurement and how we measure length, height and volume.
In science, we will be learning all about everyday materials and looking at whether they are natural or man-made. In geography, we will be learning about where we live and looking at different homes around the world. In DT we will be making our own shelters, making sure we use the correct tools and materials.
During PE lessons, we will be following the ‘Real PE’ programme. This term focuses on 'creativity'. 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 every Wednesday. 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.
