Welcome to Moles!

Welcome to Moles class
After a well-deserved half term break, we are looking forward to starting our brand-new topic ‘Is the journey or destination more important?’. We will be kick-starting our topic with an exciting Inspiration Day where we will be taste-testing, map reading and learning all about how to keep our teeth clean- we will carry out an experiment to see what will happen if we don’t look after them! Over this half term, we will be looking at where our everyday products come from, learning about food miles and understanding what ‘Fair trade’ means. We will also be practising our cooking skills by creating dishes from around the world; including a Christmas treat! We will also be learning all about the digestive system and why each part is important. We can’t wait to carry out some fun and gruesome science experiments!
In English, we will be reading ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’ by Roald Dahl which links perfectly with our new topic. We will be focusing on our prediction, inference, deduction and vocabulary skills in our English lessons. We will be using the FANTASTICS, GRAMMARTASTICS AND BOOMTASTICS from the Write Stuff in our writing to make improvements and to make our work stand out! In addition to this, we will continue to have a big focus on reading and all children will have an opportunity to read with an adult in the class. Each week there will be a reading afternoon dedicated to reading and comprehension skills. Please ensure that your child has a reading book with them each day. We will continue to teach spellings using the ‘Sounds Write’ scheme which focuses on phonics and sounds.
In mathematics, we will be focusing on rounding, the formal written methods for addition and subtraction and multiplication. We will also be practising our times tables each week and it would be great if you could practise together at home as this will really support your child’s learning.
PE sessions will be on Thursdays and Fridays this term. Please make sure your child comes to school wearing their correct PE kit.
Spellings will be given out each Friday ready for a test on the following Friday.
Keep checking back on our page to look at all of the amazing things that we are getting up to!
