*Our Christian Value for the term*

Our Christian value for this term is Justice.

 

Justice means giving all people what it is right and fair for them to have: life, health, freedom and dignity. It is about acting out of a concern for what is right. 

When we think about justice, we also think about the British Value of Tolerance and Mutual Respect and Democracy. 

Deuteronomy 16:20: Follow justice and justice alone.

 

*Our Learning for this term*

Summer term 1

 

Our topic this term is ‘Everyone’s Invited’.

 

We are planning to be scientists, looking at the solar system, with a very exciting morning where we will be exploring a Planetarium. We will also become historians by looking at how toys have changed over time. We will be investigating our local area again this term, with visits to the local Co-op and St Faith’s Church. We will do lots of creative activities, both inside and outside the classroom, which we're sure the children will love!

 

We will continue to trial a new approach to writing this term: Drawing Club, an initiative promoted by Early Years specialist Greg Bottrill. This will involve children writing and drawing based on books they love, and involves characters, settings, imagination, and secret codes! We are sure the children will continue to show enthusiasm for Drawing club and a love for writing. We will be using a variety of texts to inspire our drawing and writing, and will be making up our own stories, based on interesting characters, settings and adventures! These include books such as, Toys in Space, The Three Billy Goats Gruff and Elmer’s Birthday.

 

In maths we will be continuing to deepen our knowledge and understanding of numbers. We will also be learning about shapes, including how they can be manipulated, put together and broken apart to make other shapes.

 

Our PE lessons will now take place on a Monday or Tuesday morning. The focus this half term is on developing essential movement skills to support balance, coordination and control. Please remember to send a PE kit into school for your child if you haven’t already.

Our Christian value for this term is Trust.

 

We are very excited about this topic.  There will be lots to learn about, and plenty of hands-on experiences for the children to enjoy!
