This term, we are reading the story of 'The Bog Baby' by Jeanne Willis. The book is about two small sisters who go fishing to the magic pond, they find something much better than a frog or a newt. They find a Bog Baby, and decide to make it their secret. Do you believe in Bog Babies? I wont't tell if you won't....We are going on a trip to Blackfirs wood, to search for our very own bog babies.
In PE we will be making a bog baby dance, thinking carefully about different moves and using our emotions.
This term we are also going on a trip to Tesco, to learn about the farm to fork trail.
In year 1 maths we are concentrating solely on our number skills. These include, place value, mental maths, addition and subtraction, number bonds and counting in 2's, 5's and 10's.
Both year 1 and 2 follow the letters and sounds scheme for phonics and spelling grammar and punctuation.
This year we are introducting GROWTH MINDSET into our teaching and learning and reward system. We will be sharing a range of books and ideas around our five key aspects, which are: mastery, risk taking, independence, struggling and resilience.
