This term our topic is called 'Ministry of Magic!' and we will be changing our classrooms into Magic School.
We will be learning about witches, wizards and all things magic - making spells and potions, being mathmagicians and science wizards.
In Literacy we will use a story called 'A Magical Muddle' to learn about alliteration and write our own spells to become brainboxes and smart. We will introduce some more of our FANTASTICs - special words that we use to make our writing more exciting, and some new sentence rules. We will also write a list poem and think about some of our trickier spellings using the story 'The Princess and the Wizard.' In phonics we are moving onto the end of Phase 3 and looking at Phase 4 CCVC and CVCC words (Consonant and Vowels).
In maths we are continuing to think about addition and subtraction and how the 2 operations are linked. We will learn about 2D shapes and spend some time problem solving with numbers to 20.
The topic will be further explored in the afternoons. We will learn about weaving by making our own spiders webs, Guy Fawkes and how times have changed since he was alive, the artist Jackson Pollock and drip painting and how medicine and doctors have changed through history. We will hopefully be able to graduate the trainee witches and wizards from Magic School on our topic day where we will make our own potions and spells, make dragon eyes and use our magic words to make things move!
The children will still have their weekly P.E. lessons with Mr Sargeant, PSHE with Mrs Powell and Computing with Miss Scott.
