A big welcome back to Robin Class, and a very Happy New Year to you all!
This term, we will be continuing with our learning topic of ‘journeys’, focusing on key texts through our English learning and continuous provision. We will begin the term with the text ‘The Papaya that Spoke’, alongside the rest of the school. We will learn the story by heart using Talk for Writing actions, and learn how to change the text to write our own journey story about something that speaks which shouldn’t! Through this text, we will learn about the papaya fruit and explore its native country, Mexico. Later in the term we will become familiar with other stories where we will use our senses to learn about the world around us through scientific investigation and enquiry.
Throughout the term, we will continue to progress through the Phase 3 Letters and Sounds programme. In reading, we will be focusing on blending skills and reading high frequency and tricky words on sight. In maths, we will be using our foundational number and counting skills to learn about addition and subtraction.
In PSHE, we will focus on people who keep us safe in our community and how we can keep ourselves safe through managing risks. In RE, we will be looking at Revelations.
