This week we will start our new IPC unit - Water World.

We will have an Entry Point, Knowledge Harvest and look at the Big Picture.

For the Entry Point children will make small boats to carry a lego figure across the water.
During the knowledge Harvest children will share what they already know about water and raise any questions that they may have about water, that will be investigated during the unit.

In Maths we will be learning about Shapes and Measures.
Children will:
  • Visualise and name common 3D shapes
  • Describe the features of 3D shapes
  • Use 3D shapes to make patterns and models
  • Read the time to o'clock and half past the hour
  • Some children will read the time quarter past and quarter to
In Literacy we will be looking at Fantasy Stories - Superheroes
Children will:

  • Write a short caption about their favourite superhero
  • Learn to create plurals by adding s/es appropriately
  • Read and illustrate a familiar story
  • Use good speaking and listening skills to discuss superheroes
  • Write clear sentences describing superheroes
  • Use correct sentence punctuation
  • Write a sequence of linked sentences

During reading this week I will be focussing on comprehension and understanding of text.
Children will read an unsen text and then I will ask a range of questions literal, inferrential etc. to find the areas of support that your child may need to develop to help with the understanding of texts.
