Term Two- Overview of learning
We have had so much fun with our Space Topic this term. I really don't want it to end!
We begun the tem with a crash landing in forest school which really inspired the children to do some fantastic writing on the moon landing.
Next we started our work on a book called Man on the Moon (see below). Bob was the central character and his job was to clean the moon.
So I decided the class needed to visit the moon and even meet Bob whilst they were there. We all had so much fun as we counted down to blast off, traveled through space for four days before finally arriving the the moon! The children were even lucky enough to meet Bob!
General information about Caterpillar Class.
Staff in Caterpillar Class
We are lucky to have excellent caring, fun and hard-working staff in our classroom. Mrs Oliver is our teaching assistant and she will be in class every morning and 2 afternoons to support the children and their learning. We also have Mrs Dunmore, Mrs Boyce, Mrs Salvidge and Ms Holmes who are working as 1-2-1s and will be supporting certain children in the class.
Mrs Dunmore is also a lunchtime supervisor, so she will be there to support the children during the lunch break too.
We aim to change reading books on a Tuesday. If your child reads 5 times a week they will be put onto our blooming flower and come home with a My Reading is Blooming sticker. Please keep this up and let us know if they read any other texts as reading at home or from the library really gives them time to absorb and enjoy literature.
Spellings and My Maths
The children will receive weekly spelling sentences that are linked to our phonics learning. These will be tested every Tuesday and new spellings will be sent home too. Each child also gets their own My Maths login and will have activities and games set once a fortnight beginning in term 3.
Please ensure all uniform, PE kits, bags, hats and scarves are named. We endeavour to return as much as possible but without names this makes returning lost things really difficult.
