What will we be learning in September?
We will all start the year by reading “Here We Are - Notes For Living On Planet Earth” by Oliver Jeffers. This will give us lots of opportunities to try to make sense of life since Covid 19 and to settle back in to being together as a class.
This will lead in to a Mantle where we work as if we are a rehabilitation team - watch this space!
We will be reading “The Firework Maker’s Daughter” by Philip Pullman.
We will be learning more about big numbers and statistics in maths and improving our times tables knowledge.
What will be learning from March 8th?
Up until Easter we will be doing as much of learning as we can through our new Mantle - "The Stoney Bywell Curators". This will mean that the children have lots of opportunities to talk, share ideas, read, write and create artwork and artefacts in a safe imaginary story context - as well as come back together with their friends, collaborate and feel confident about themselves as a learner.
Our maths work will focus on fractions and the children being secure with this important concept, so we will be starting right from the beginning and taking steady steps whilst providing support and challenge as needed.
You will notice that we will be doing three lots of PE as we believe that physical activity will keep mental tiredness at bay and help the children to rebuild their stamina.
We will also be getting involved with RSA4 again this year and the children will be creating a Social Action Project on something they want to see change in their community. Watch this space!
