Welcome to the New Year!
1H have made a fantastic start to the new year. We have worked very hard in our daily phonic lessons and have been applying it to our reading and writing. We are focusing on phase 5 phonics, looking at alternative phonemes.
Our new book is 'Meerkat Mail'. This book is linked to our new topic of 'Brentwood and Beyond'. We had an exciting arrival of a postcard from an unknown character. We made predictions and linked this to our topic learning. We will be learning how to write postcards and will reply to our mystery postcard.
We are continuing with a focus on sentence writing, including the following features.
In maths, we are focusing on place value and number. We have focused on addition and subtraction. Please continue to practise number bonds to 20 at home.
Our new exciting topic is 'Brentwood and Beyond'. We will be learning all about our local area, with a focus of its human features. We will also been learning how to use an atlas and how to locate countries and continents. Later in the topic, we will be comparing this with Kenya. We will be learning all about the wildlife of Kenya and we will be writing reports on Kenyan animals. Please see the new curriculum in the links at the bottom of the page.
