Happy New Year and welcome back to our class page, I am so excited for this Learning Enquiry as do the children, it’s all about TOYS! As scientist, we are going to be looking at the materials that our toys are made from, their properties and why they are so important; the historians in us will be looking at toys from the past and how toys, games and playing has changed over the years! We would LOVE some of your old toys, or toys that your parents would have played with, to enhance our learning.

As writers, we will be using familiar and some new texts to enhance our thinking, we will be continuing to look at sentence structure, using capital letters, full stops, question marks and finger spaces in all of our writing and looking more closes into word classes, focusing on nouns, verbs and adjectives.

As Mathematicians, we will continue to work on place value, firstly with a focus on numbers 10-20, later applying our knowledge to addition and subtraction and leading onto recognise and represent numbers all the way to 50! We will also be measuring length, height, mass and volume. This term we have also introduced our Daily 10! This is 10 questions which we complete every morning against the clock! Our only competition is our previous selves and it’s a great way to get that brain working first thing in the morning.

We have spent the last couple of terms looking at Christianity, we are going to begin to look at how the values and believes, compare and overlap with other religions. We will be asking ourselves the question: How should we live our lives. Thinking and reflecting on how what we do affects others, which rules help us to be the best versions of ourselves, how values are important to us, and how stories from other religions can help us to reflect on our own behaviour.

We are continuing to become reflecting learning in PSHE, in our unit of dreams and goals, a great one to start off the new year! We will be thinking about how to set a goal and the steps that we might need to take to achieve it. As well as being able to recognise all of our small successes with our success coins. Keep an eye out for out keepsake boxes that will come home for you to add in your own successes!
