This term we will be challenging ourselves to try new learning and find different ways to do things. We will also continue to practise skills we haven't yet mastered such as writing our names using cursive letters, doing up buttons and zips and taking care of our own belongings.
Our topic this term is 'Why should we remember?'
We will be thinking about significant events in British history. We will start the term off by learning about Guy Fawkes, the Gunpowder Plot and bonfire night. We will then learn all about Remembrance day and why people wear poppies, and lastly, we will be learning all about the Christmas story - with a fabulous nativity (with a twist) to finish the term.
Below is our termly topic map as well as our 'chilli challenge' vocabulary. If you have any questions, special skills or interesting subject knowledge linked to any of our topics please let us know; we would love to invite you in.
Mild chilli words are words that your children should know the meaning of and use them in everyday conversation.
Spicy chilli words are words that your children may have heard but perhaps don't yet fully understand their meaning. They are words that would be in an adults everyday vocabulary.
Hot chilli words are very topic specific and may require discrete teaching. It is our aim that your child will be able to use them correctly and in context by the end of the topic.
