SummerTerm 2018



We have a full and thrilling time ahead.

To kick off we will be reading: Funnybones. By Janet and Alan Ahlberg. 


In this, the first ever classic and beloved Funnybones book of all, we are introduced to the wonderful humour and fun of the much-loved series. Funnybones is a great short story that depicts the tale of three skeletons, big skeleton, little skeleton and dog skeleton. The three skeletons go out for a night walk with the intentions of scaring some people, however they can't find anyone to scare. During the course of the walk they visit the zoo, re-assemble the dog skeleton and set about scaring each other.

Each page is packed with stunning artwork to develop visual understanding, imagination and creativity. 



We will be focusing on Talk for Writing. The children will be learning a text and developing their knowledge and skills around that piece of writing. The new concept will develop their confidence, expand their imagination and creativity and inspire them to write with more passion.

The children inevitably learn the story word for word which is a powerful way to internalise narrative patterns and the language of stories. 

Our text for writing this term is a short version of FUNNYBONES

At the end of each unit some children will be selected to celebrate their fabulous writing with SLT. 

Last term Golden Sticker writers were Madiha and Natalie. Congratulations! 



This term we will investigating, understanding  and use mathematical vocabulary to describe position, direction and movement. This includes movement in a straight line, distinguishing between rotation as a turn and in terms of right angles for quarter and  half and three-quarter turns ( clockwise and anti-clockwise). We will order and arrange combinations of mathematical objects in patterns and sequences.    to build competency by taking the approach of: Concrete - Pictorial - Abstract.

Concrete - children have the opportunity to use concrete objects to help them understand what they are doing.

Pictorial - alongside this children will have/use pictorial representations. These can help the children reason and solve problems.

Abstract -  concrete and pictorial representations should help the children develop a better understanding of abstract methods.

We will be re-visiting number and place value and problem solving.
