In our class, we aim to be: 


We are always ready to learn.

We are patient and we pay attention so that we can be super learners!


We look after each other and the school property.

We take care in all that we do.


We listen carefully so that we are safe at all times.

We use our kind hands and we follow the instructions all of the time.


Our Summer 2 topic this half term is titled 'How old are the trees around us?'. This is a scienced-based topic and we will be exploring all things nature, in particular looking at trees, their many varieties and functions. We will also be learning about the parts and functions of plants - how exciting! 


In English this half term, the children have explored the story 'The Disgusting Sandwich' by Gareth Edwards, creating their own story map; reciting as well as writing the story (of course remembering those 'Just Do It' rules, adjectives, verbs, exclamation and question marks too) AND using their fantastic literacy skills to innovate the story! We can't wait to see what they create!

In Maths, our clever Mathematicians are learning all about time -  WOW! They will start off with times to the hour, then progress to more specific times. After this, children will be learning numbers to 100. Please support with this as much as you can at home, thank you.


You can also support your child's maths through the new '1-minute maths' app, from White Rose Maths. Click on the link below to find out more...

 Dinosaurs class will be enjoying a furry-tastic ESB poem this half-term; 'The apple tree and the bees'.  The children practice this poem to develop their communication skills, as well as their expression and fluency.
