Spring Term Two
This term Our topic is, ‘Let's Investigate.'
This term we will be learning about Tango Makes Three. This is a lovely book about two male penguins who fall in love and have a chick in New York Zoo. Since our Topic is, 'Let's Investigate' we are going to focus on learning about and creating different buildings, starting by looking at the New York skyline and then a little closer to home, a walk around Tickhill to identify houses made of different materials. We will explore through play using a range of materials and then later work on building our own mini 3D homes made from the most suitable materials. This will also be reflected in our writing as we are going to begin by writing about where we live before we start our three week block of writing which will focus on the story.
If anybody is in the building trade and would like to come and talk to our class one afternoon then please let me know.
In Maths, we will be learning about place value to 50.

PE kits will be needed for children. Our PE lessons will take place on a Friday afternoon during 'Fitness Friday'. (You will be already familiar with this!) PE kits can be left at school for each half term and then taken home to be washed during the holidays! Please ensure all kits are labelled clearly with names (shorts included please.)
