This term our topic is called 'Oh I do like to be beside the sea side' and we will be learning all about the British coastline and how Herne Bay has changed through time.
In Literacy we will be looking at a book called 'Tiddler,' a little fish who tells tall tales. We will look at the punctuation in this book and use it when we write our own excuses. We will also look at the suffix -est. Later in the term we will write some seaside poetry and write a recount.
In maths we will be revisiting measures: height, length, mass, capacity, volume and time. We will also revisit money, multiplication and division - a lot to squeeze into the last term!
In phonics we will be preparing for the Phonics Screener (wk beginning 10th June) and then closing any gaps in learning as a result of the screener.
The topic will be explored further in the afternoons, using history, geography, music, art, and DT: we will learn about the history of Herne Bay pier and clock tower (with a visit to the Seaside Museum in town), that Britain is an island with different types of coastlines, the difference between manmade and natural geographical features. Jigsaw Jack will be used to explore changes and prepare ourselves for the transition into Year 2.
The children will still have their weekly P.E. lessons with Miss Williams, R.E. with Mrs Powell and Computing with Miss Scott.
