The teachers in our class are called Ms A Patel (morning teacher) and Mrs Ahmed (afternoon teacher). We also have Mrs S Patel in our class to help us with our learning. There are 28 children in Polar Bears and we always work hard and try our very best. We love learning and are great at helping each other. Have a look at what we are doing this term…

 

In the morning we have our phonic sessions which help us to develop our reading skills and confidence. Reading is a very important part of our school and we have plenty of opportunities to read to our teacher and teaching assistants. Our books get changed on our reading day if we remember to bring them in and they have been signed. We can also bring our books in early to be changed if they have been signed at home and our teacher will try to change them as quickly as possible.

 

In our English lessons in Spring term 1:

We will be looking at Stories in Familiar Settings. We will be learning the story of Hansel and Gretel. We will have a go at writing some character descriptions and even get to write our own version of Hansel and Gretel! We will be trying hard to check our work makes sense and looking at ways to improve our writing. We will also get a chance to make our very own gingerbread houses and raffle them for everyone to win! Have a look at the link for more information.

In our Maths lessons in Spring 1, we will be using larger numbers to 50 or even 100. We will be counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. We will also be looking at time and measures. We will be continuing to solve problems using money and explore how to multiply using repeated addition.

 

In Geography, we will be learning about Seasonal Changes – Comparing lengths of day/night, locating different countries in the UK. We will also become weather reporters by looking at weather patterns and reports for the UK.
