Comets

 

Hello everyone and welcome to the Comets homepage!

 

Welcome back to the second half of our Autumn half term. I hope your child had an enjoyable first half term and has returned to school ready for more fabulous learning! We will be recognising numbers, shapes and we are currently beginning to learn about adding and subtracting during our maths lessons, whilst developing our knowledge of letters and sounds in phonics. We will be focussing on an array of topics such as 'Ourselves, Around the World and Mixed up Fairytales.' I look forward to seeing you taking part in your child's learning during 'Stay & Play' sessions, if you are able to, this half term.

 

Please remember, if you have any worries or concerns, feel free to come in for a chat after school or send me a message on class dojo.

Our Topic This Half Term is...

 

Around the World

 

This half term we will be thinking all about our the world around us. We will also be looking at different countries and looking for similarities and differences. Our learning will focus around 7 key questions;

Who celebrates Diwali?

What is it like in China?

Where do cheeky monkeys live?

What country do we live in?

What other places are in Europe?

What do we know about Christmas?

How is Christmas celebrated around the world?

 

In maths we will be recapping our skills of finding 1 or 2 more than a given number. After which we will be focussing primarily on our addition and subtraction skills this half term.
