The Virtues and Values for this half term are curious and active.
We are growing to be curious about everything; and active in our engagement with the world, changing what we can for the better.
Our class saint is St. Andrew, the patron saint of Scotland. We think about how we can be kind to others and spread Gods love the way that he did.
This term will begin with the unit of Christmas, and develop the children’s knowledge and understanding of Christmas as a celebration of the birth of Jesus. The children will develop an understanding of the importance of the birth of Jesus through the events that happened before and after, and the impact it had on the people involved.
We will then move onto ‘prayer’, a unit designed to develop the children’s understanding of prayer as a special way of spending time with God. The children will explore the vocabulary, actions, places and aids associated with prayer, with particular reference to the prayer of praise and intercession. We will end our unit with the children exploring how Christians give praise to God in the psalms and in prayers like the “Glory Be To The Father” and the “Our Father”.
Each week, a child who has been noticed for displaying beautiful behaviour and well-presented hard work throughout each school day will be rewarded with our class friend Doogie. In normal circumstances, this would mean that Doogie is sent to your home for a weekend adventure however, due to covid-19 safety precautions, I will not be sending Doogie to homes until it is a safer time to do so. Instead, your child will be rewarded with a Doogie certificate/star prize and celebration in class.
Welcome back and Happy New Year! We now tiptoe into our new topic ‘The Enchanted Woodland’.
If you go down to the woods today, you’re sure of a BIG surprise! Foxes and badges, voles and mice, beady-eyed owls in the swaying tree tops. Beneath the leaves are tiny footprints…animal or imp? You decide!
What can you find?
Can you match a leaf to its tree?
Can you match a petal to its flower?
Let’s build a den, stick by stick and branch by branch. Or we could make a teeny tiny home for a woodland fairy!
Then let’s party down in the woods with Mr.Fox and all his friends. We’d better not get lost…let’s leave a trail of conkers as we go!
At last, it’s time to rest by the woodland fire, listening to stories and toasting our sweet, gooey marshmallows. Yum, yum!
In science we continue to explore the properties of ‘Everyday Materials’, before learning about the growth of plants. The children will explore and learn that plants are a living organism through the process of photosynthesis. We will study the different parts of a plant and identify a wide variety of plants including flowers, trees and vegetables.
