Hello and welcome back to an exciting new school year.
We will have a new learning focus based on our new curriculum – Dimensions. Our learning will be cross curricular and theme based. Our first theme is Happily Ever After and it has a key element of communication. This theme will last for 7 weeks.
Please find attached our What I Should Know (WhISK) sheet; on here you will find what our learning will be focused on.
Our homework will be based on key skills and the WhISK sheet.
Use the WhISK sheet to broaden your understanding of our Happily Ever After theme. Read, listen to or watch a range of Fairy tales. Do you notice anything? Are they all the same? Think of our science link - what does living and non-living mean? Identify things at home and walking to and from school. What is happening with our weather? Discuss the different vocabulary linked to our theme. What does habitat mean?
This will be your homework for 7 weeks. Pick things from the WhISK sheet to embed your learning and broaden your understanding. For example, you could create a life cycle, make a bird feeder and take a photo, learn to name some common birds or take some photos of living things that you see. See what else you can come up with, use the WhISK sheet to help you.
