The class teacher in Apricot Class is Miss Jansen.  The teaching assistant is Miss Edgeworth.

Our topic for Spring is ‘What’s It Made From’. This is a science topic about the properties of everyday materials. We will be looking at the ‘Three Little Pigs‘ and the materials that they use to build their houses and exploring the best material for ‘Cinderella’s mop! The children will begin to use and understand specific scientific vocabulary, such as transparent and flexible. Do talk to your child about what objects are made of and why that material was used for a particular object i.e. glass for windows.

P.E will be on Thursday morning.  Please ensure named P.E kits come into school on a Monday and stay in school all week.

We will continue weekly guided reading sessions which will include the teaching comprehension skills. Phonics continues to take place daily at 09.10.

Please continue to read with your child everyday. We check reading logs regularly to  give out Red Ted rewards.

In maths we will be looking at position (under, above, beneath, next to, left and right etc) and how to split a number into tens and ones. In addition we start to use the column method for simple addition where no regrouping is needed – for instance 22 + 6.

In Literacy we will continue looking at classic fairy-tales , such as ‘Cinderella’ and ‘Three Little Pigs‘. We will link our Literacy writing to our materials topic and write about the properties of materials.

Thank you for your support.

Miss Jansen
