Our local area topic will teach Puffins about their locality beyond the school gate, building on children’s knowledge and understanding of their school environment. Children will explore their local area using first hand observation to enhance their locational awareness along with developing essential map and fieldwork skills. This topic will provide a perfect opportunity for Puffins to gain a greater insight into where they live!
This term our topic is The RMS Titanic – we will be learning about this iconic vessel and how it came to a tragic end. The children will learn about the ships construction and what it was like on-board!
Our writing this term will focus on a diary entry from a passenger travelling on The Titanic. As always, we will be using a talk for writing approach which will enable children to become really confident with the structure and language used in diary writing, before they create their own diary entries!
Our whole class reading books this term will introduce the children to Roald Dahl. We will start with the story of The Enormous Crocodile and will finish with The Giraffe, The Pelly and Me.
In maths children will be developing their addition and subtraction skills within 10 and then 20. There will also be plenty of practical opportunities for children to learn when we teach both the height and length and weight and volume units of work.
Forest School will re-start for Puffins, but this term all children will have their session on a Friday. They can come to school dressed in their forest school clothes but will need their uniform to change into afterwards.
As always, we have attached a curriculum map which includes further details on our topic coverage this term.
We look forward to another great term of hard work and fun.
The Puffins Team.
