Yr 3/4/5 Miss Powley
This half term, our topic is ‘Oh, but its cold outside!’
We will be learning through a key focus text each week and our continuous provision will also follow this theming.
Our focus texts this half term are:
One Snowy Night
The Snowman & The Snow dog
The Jolly Christmas Postman
The traditional Christmas Story
As well as a range of non-fiction books linked to our winter topic.
In literacy, we will be focusing on developing our comprehension skills and build confidence when reading 1:1. We will be writing simple sentences using capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. We will continue to participate in small group guided reading sessions and enjoy AR quizzing during library times. We will also engage in funky finger activities to improve our fine motor skills.
In mathematics, we will be focusing on recognising and naming 2D and 3D shapes. We will engage in shape hunts, making Rangoli patterns to celebrate Diwali and create our own shape monsters. We will then continue to practice recognising and utilising numerals 0-50 when working on place value.
Through topic, we will be visiting Pennywell Farm in December to take part in a live nativity, we will be singing in a Christmas concert, we will also be making Christmas cards and crafts to take home.
