PMA and PGB
This half term, some of us will be continuing our learning at home using Showbie, home learning packs and our website. Our learning may be different but still exciting!
Our subject areas will be Geography, History, Music, Religious Education, Science, Art and PE.
In Geography we will be exploring our environment and reminding ourselves of human and physical features all around us. When we are outside, we will learn to be more aware of our surroundings and to take notice of living and non-living things. Our Science lessons will help us to identify materials in our indoor and outdoor environment and remind us about things which are made and those which occur naturally all around us.
Our RE theme this half term is Christianity and we will share our thoughts about the story of The Good Samaritan. Rhythm and rhyme will continue to be our focus in Music and we will listen to songs performed by our music teacher Chris. In PE, we will explore how our bodies move through dance and try and match our moves to our favourite music. For our Art activities, we will make our own sculptures, take photographs of them and create a gallery for the academy. History lessons will be an introduction to Captain Cook and our local area where he was born.
Our stories this half term are The Three Billy Goats Gruff, Sausages and Where the Wild Things Are. We will use these wonderful stories to help us develop our love for books and reading. We will use our creative skills to make puppets and our sequencing skills to help us to write stories and captions. We will continue our work with Letters and Sounds Phase 1, and where appropriate ReadWrite Inc. to help us learn how to read and spell words. We will also explore poems to make us smile.
During our Maths sessions, our focus on number skills will be to recognise numbers and to count forwards and backwards. We will use these skills in different contexts, whether at home or school, to develop our understanding of number in our everyday lives. Some of us will learn to add and take away objects and then count a new total. We will continue to explore 2d and 3d shapes all around us and make picture and models with them.
