What’s happening in Term 1 ?
Are you ready for Monster Mayhem ? WE ARE !
In English we are going monster crazy, finishing the term with a monster themed party - more of that later !
To start with we are reading and enjoying books about the Loch Ness monster and then we are going to be writing our own monster themed story. After that we are going to be Monster Explorers using adjectives to write descriptions of them. We will finish this block by planning and holding a monster party where we will be allowed to come to school dressed up as a monster!
Our Geography theme is based around the Loch Ness Monster, Scotland and Scottish islands.
We will be researching these places using books, the internet and I-pads and also closely looking at maps and globes to locate these and other key places in the UK and the world. We will also be making our own real and imaginary maps and devising our own keys. We will finish off by creating a monster island map and use a compass to plot a route around it!
We are doing Art with Mrs Lerigo this term and we are learning more about Scottish culture and Scottish artists.
In Computing we will be typing our own name and developing our word processing skills.We will also be programming and coding Bee-Bots around a monster island map.
In Mathematics we will be learning more about place value, numbers up to 100 and addition and subtraction. We will also be having maths challenge homework to take home.
The Science theme is Animals including humans and we will be learning all about life cycles of animals and humans and how to stay healthy.
In music we will be enjoying singing old and new Autumn songs and getting ready for our Harvest Festival where we will also be doing a country dancing demonstration for our guests to watch.
As well as this we are doing games skills in P.E. with our coach Mr. Holland.
In RE will we be learning more about different festivals and including own Harvest Festival.
What a busy first term we have planned !
