Welcome to the Tiger Moths!
Hello and welcome!

*Our Christian Value for the term*
Our Christian value for this term is Trust.
Trust is the very essence of faith; trust in the God who is trustworthy.
Trust is essential to human life and lies at the heart of all relationships. Trust entails vulnerability, putting yourself in others’ hands. We have to trust experts - pilots, dentists, surgeons – and our wonderful teachers, teaching assistants and all of our St Faith’s family, and be trustworthy ourselves.
John 14:1 (Jesus’ words to his disciples)
‘Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.’
*Our Learning for this term*
Our Topic this term is Wriggle and Crawl
We will be expecting an exciting visit on our first day back at school after the Easter Holiday as we welcome Captivating Creatures to our school and learn about some rather large creepy crawlies!. We will spend time learning about all kinds of minibeasts this term. Through Science and Forest School we will have the opportunity to learn about animal groups such as mammals, amphibians, reptiles, insects and birds! We will also learn the names of some common plants in our local area and create a jubilee garden, fit for our Queen!
We will be creating some great dances with a minibeast theme in PE, as well as taking part in golf with Synergy on a Thursday afternoon. Our Computing unit this term will continue to focus on teaching children to programme, using algorithms and understanding how to debug an algorithm, using the App, ScratchJr. We will be combining our DT and Art work this term as we learn about the work of Michelle Reader and create our own recycled sculptures. In PSHE we will be finding out why sleep is important, how we use medicines safely, how to manage our feelings and how to ask for help.
Our Talk for Writing in English text this term is The Storm Whale. Through this story we will have opportunities to write about the a little boy who has found a whale on the beach. There will be lots of learning opportunities to explore the use of adjectives and verbs effectively. Of course we will continue to focus on our handwriting, capital letters, full stops, finger spaces, exclamation marks and question marks.
In Maths the units for this term in maths include multiplication and division, fractions and position and direction. We will practise counting in 2’s 5’s and 10’s to multiply and also have an understanding that division can be worked out by grouping or sharing. In fractions children need to be able to find half or quarter of a shape and then half or quarter of an amount. You could support at home by sharing out food at mealtimes into halves and quarters fairly. The positional language that they will use will involve half and quarter turns of shape about a point and the terms left, right, forward and backward. It would really benefit your child by teaching them to understand which is their left and right hand.
