Welcome to Otter Class


Spring Term 1


Welcome to our class page, where you can find information about PE days, homework and the learning we will be doing over the term.


Our learning question this term is linked to our Geography topic.


What’s special about our country?


Can you guess what we will be learning about here and what our Geography topic will be based on?


Within Maths this term, we will be focusing on Place Value within 20 and starting to look at ​​​Addition and Subtraction within 20. We will use a range of practical resources to explore and solve different calculations.


In English this term, our fiction writing will be focused around the story 'The Train Ride' and we will also be writing non-fiction biography based around the book 'Bold Women In Black History'. We will be practising sentence structure, punctuation and using our phonics to support spelling.


In Phonics, we will continue to recap our set 2 sounds alongside learning our set 3 sounds. We will also use a range of phonics games to further demonstrate our understanding. We will read in groups daily in school with opportunities to develop our comprehension skills.


In Geography, we will be focusing on the UK and exploring what makes up the UK. In PSHE, we will be exploring diversity and communities. In Art, we will be exploring architecture and looking at some key buildings in London. In Science, we will be looking into the different seasons and the weather we associate with each season. In RE, we will be exploring Judaism and focusing on the question - Why is learning to do good deeds so important to Jewish people? In PE, will be be doing Dance and Gymnastics each week.
