Term 4 Our Local Area - Where we live.
We will be looking at the area around the school and finding out about the features of Barming. We will go for a walk near the school to see what we can find out about Barming, which will also include road safety. Have a look at the photos below with your child. Does your child know what the local buildings are and what they are used for? What do they like about Barming? What would they like the area to have if they could choose something new?
In English, we will be researching and writing about hedgehogs. We'll be writing instructions and making sure children know the difference between a question, command, statement and exclamation. Can your child give you a command?! Our focus will be ensuring that children are spelling Year 1 and Year 2 common exception words and writing with good presentation, ensuring they form and join letters correctly.
You can practise reading and spelling the Year 1 and Year 2 Common Exception Words (see below). Please also continue to share books and hear your child read at home.
In Maths this term, we are learning about shape, fractions and number calculations. Can your child recognise half of an amount? Do they know what the 'whole' cake means? Please continue to use the Time Tables rock stars at home to help your child to understand all aspects of our Maths learning.
