This half term in English our books will be all about Pirates to link in with our Curriculum theme Pirate perils. We will be learning to create posters, fact files, instructions and a recount. We will continue focusing on how to write on a line, correct letter size and using cursive writing. We will use the texts to look at vocabulary, punctuation and to inference questions. 



This term we will be looking at comparing quantities and part-whole relationships and numbers 0-5. We will look at how numbers 0-5 are represented in different ways. Also, we will continue using manipulatives such as; ten frames, number lines and part whole models. 


Our project this half term is Pirate Perils. We will be looking at things related to Pirates. We will be exploring the pirate Grace O'Malley and why she is famous in History. In Art, we are going to be creating our own watercolour landscape of a scenic view. Within Geography we are going to be exploring similarities and differences of human and physical geography. As well as, locating the five oceans and the seven continents. In ICT we will be identifying the benefits of ICT, looking at what a digital footprint is and how spending too much time on devices can lead to a negative impact.  

Themed reading week and Diversity Day. We have enjoyed looking at the book Handa's surprise and learning all about Kenya. We made our own fruit salad and learnt an African dance.

At Djanogly Sherwood we know that things are challenging and different right now we wanted to help by sharing some good resources. Here is a video you could watch and share with yoru children explaining how to talk to children and race and diversity. We will also be sharing lessons on Seesaw through some great books about diversity. We hope that this helps. Remember our strap line at Sherwood is 'Where everyone belongs'.
