Happy New Year and welcome to Term 3!
Our enquiry this term is ''Investigate Eastville - What can you find out?." We will be exploing our local area and finding out about Eastville. We will use our forest school sessions to explore our local woodland areas and investigate what species live here. In our Geography sessions we will use map skills to explore Eastville and our art will focus on a local artist.
Our key authors this term are Janet and Allan Ahlberg. Together, they wrote and illustrated many stories including Each Peach Pear Plum, Funny Bones and Peepo. If you have any of their books at home, it would be great if you could share them with the class.
During English this term we will be focussing on the story ‘The Jolly Postman’ written and illustrated by Janet and Allan Ahlberg. We will use the story and role play to inspire our writing and produce letters in role as different characters from the story. We will then re tell the story and become authors to produce our own journey stories. We will finish the term by writing persuasive adverts similar to one from the story.
In Maths we will be focusing on measurement and covering fractions, money and developing our reasoning skills. We will then recap our addition and subtraction skills. During the last week of term we have a whole school STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) week to look forward to.
Keep up the good work!
