WOW what a fantastic start to the new school year. We are all glad to be back at school and ready for the challenges ahead. We are now called Oranges and have a special orange with our face on the door so everyone knows our new class name.
We are starting our new school year with the topic me, myself and I. We are going to learn about our likes and dislikes and everything that makes us different and special as well as what makes us all similar. We are also going to think about how our friends and family are special and how to show them they are special to us.
In computing we are going to develop our basic computing skills including how to use a mouse or trackpad, switching the computer off and on, creating a word document, typing as well as saving and safe searching.
In science we are going to learn about animals including ourselves. We are going to develop our understanding of naming and locating parts of the human body, including those relating to the senses, identifying and naming different common animals including fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals. We will compare and try to describe features of animals from a range of groups, recognise that animals can be grouped according to whether they are carnivores, herbivores or omnivores.
In RE we will be looking at different places of worship and why they are special to different people. We will also think about special places to us including home, school, the park, beach, Foxden and others.
All in all a busy time ahead.
