Let’s Play – Term 1

This term, the core books in Elm Class are ‘The Robot and the Bluebird’ and ‘Traction Man’. English lessons are based on the core text and are read to the class on a daily basis. Children have additional English and maths tasks planned throughout the week as part of our continuous provision. In the afternoon, activities based on our topics are available in the classroom to enhance their learning, where children are able to choose tasks to complete.

Our Science topic this term is seasonal change where the children will be looking at temperatures, wind speeds and rainfall. They will be performing simple tests by making their own anemometers to measure wind, reading thermometers and build rain gauges!

In History, we will be learning about how toys have changed in the last 100 years and attempting to make our own versions of toys from the past.

We have a text the class focus learning around to develop vocabulary. Our current text is below:
