Hello and welcome back Kestrels! I hope you all had a fabulous summer break and have plenty of exciting adventures to tell me about. This is the Kestrel class page that will include some key information about this half term including dates, what we will be covering this half term and PE days etc. There is also a second class page for Kestrel parents that I will give access to next week. This second class page will be a weekly class blog highlighting something fabulous we have completed throughout the week.
This term our topic is ‘Living Things and their Habitats’. We will explore what makes a living thing, how we can classify plants and animals, animal habitats or environments, adaptations and food chains/ food webs.
English this half term will begin with writing 1st person stories with links to ‘Treasure Island’ as part of a whole school project. We will then move on to non-chronological reports/fact files based on animals to link with our topic.
Maths will mostly be work on Place value before moving on to written methods for addition and subtraction.
The two attachments below outline the medium term plan for this half term and the long term plan that shows curriculum coverage across the year (subject to change).
For this half term our PE sessions will be on Tuesday and Friday afternoons and so children will need PE kits on these days.
I look forward to seeing you all soon!
