This Week's Learning

Term 1 Week 1

In English this week we will start by writing a set of class rules. We will mind-map the types of behaviour that we would like to see from Beech pupils this year. We will then learn about what we need to include to make grammatically sound sentences. Next, we will use and apply this understanding to create our class rules for the year. Finally, we will turn our attention towards the book ‘Quest’ by Aaron Becker. We will familiarise ourselves with the book, develop our prediction, inference and deduction skills and then turn our attention towards using the book as inspiration for our own written descriptions. We will also read a number of other books selected to engage and inspire the class including The Tin Forest by Helen Ward.

In Maths this week, we will focus on revisiting the concept of place value for the numbers 0-20. We will represent these numbers in a variety of different ways including numerals. words, numicon, counters and number-lines. Next, we will extend this understanding to the numbers from 1 to 50 with a focus on number lines and number tracks.

In R.E. we will explore the concept of creation and begin to explore the Christian story of creation. In Science and Computing, we will explore and recognise the uses and features of information technology in the world around us.

We will also complete P.E and Design and the Arts lessons as well.
