Term 3

Welcome back to Term 3!

This term our topic will be ‘A journey into  winter!’                                           

We will be exploring the season of winter, through the eyes of artists and penguins.  No matter how old you are; we think the wonder and excitement of waking up to a world under a blanket of snow still remains.  There’s nothing quite as thrilling as snowfall and the joy of being outside on a beautiful snowy day. 

In Phonics, we will continue learning our Phase 2 sounds and the actions to go with them! The children are really enjoying learning a new sound every day and are beginning to apply these in their writing.  Whilst communicating and sharing stories, we will also be listening out for new vocabulary we’ve learnt in class.

As Mathematicians, we will continue our journey in the Phase 4 ‘Alive in 5 ‘ with the focus on  introducing zero, comparing numbers to 5, composition of 4 and 5. In Measure, Space and Spatial Thinking we will explore Comparing Mass and Capacity.

Also, Phase 5 ‘Growing 6, 7 and 8’, with the focus on numbers 6, 7 and 8, making pairs and, combining 2 groups.  In Measure, Space and Spatial Thinking, we will explore; Length, Height and Time.

Please keep an eye on the School Gateway and Class Dojo for information regarding our busy daily lives here at St Paul’s Academy.

As always, please contact us through class Dojo with any questions or concerns. We love celebrating your child’s successes and achievements too, so please don’t forget to share any news, learning or fun on your child’s Class Dojo portfolio!

We look forward to another half term full of learning and fun!
