Whittlebury Class 1
Welcome back to school. We hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year. Our topic this term is called ‘Far, Far and Away' Please find the topic letter attached below.
The children will be comparing and contrasting locations around the world. Particularly focusing on Australia. We will be looking at all aspects of the continent: weather, animals, customs and traditions and importantly how to get there. We will then compare Australia to our own locality and look at the similarities and differences. With the ongoing bush fires in Australia we will be looking to raise money to help.
Our cross curricular learning this term will allow us to apply our skills in a variety of ways. We continue to learn from rich, immersive texts in Literacy such as 'Meerkat Mail' and work through our Maths No Problem scheme with additional maths challenges supplementing our learning during Continuous Provision.
We are always looking for parents to come in and help read, so if you think you would like to spend a bit of time in the classroom reading with our wonderful children please let us know.
If you have any questions or queries about your child’s learning, please do not hesitate to pop in and see me. My door is always open. Remember to keep checking our class dojo story to see what we've been up to!
