A warm welcome to Willow Class! Our teachers' names are:
In English lessons we focus on traditional tales, chronological reports and instructions. We use Talk for Writing to help children learn stories and imitate the language they need to write their own story.
This term we will be looking at:
A range of texts including various children's fiction books, non-fiction and some poetry.
We focussing on sentence structure, including capital letters, full stops and finger spaces. We are including adjectives in our writing and reading our work back to check it makes sense. We are using conjunctions, such as 'and', 'but', 'or' and 'because'. We are also working on handwriting and spelling ready for the children moving up into Year 2.
This term we are looking at place value and ordering numbers. The children will have to represent numbers in a variety of ways and contexts. We will also look at addition and subtraction. The children will be encouraged to use their addition and subtraction skills to answer a range of calculations and to solve different mathematical problems.
We follow the Alumno Curriculum and this is the base for all our topics throughout the year.
We will be looking at the city of Stoke-on-Trent and how the city and the pottery industry grew. We will be looking at the importance of the canals and potbanks. The children will design a plate. We will then compare Stoke-on-Trent to Llandudno and look at how a coastal community is different from our own city.
We will be looking different plants and animals. We will be learning about what these need to grow and how they grow. We will look at how our skeletons work and how they are different from other animals. The children will learn about the different parts of plants and flowers and what each individual part does.
