Our topics this half term are:


 'What is a shadow?'   &   'Winter Wonderland'


This half term we will be following the Cornerstones Curriculum to deliver two exciting topics.

Winter Wonderland- This project teaches children about the changes that happen during Winter, including the types of weather associated with Winter. It also explores places that have snow all year round and the types of animals that live there. We will be going on a Winter walk around the school grounds looking for signs of Winter.

'What is a shadow?' - In this topic we will go shadow hunting, exploring our environment to find and make shadows. We will investigate light by using prisms, torches and kaleidoscopes, discovering which materials light does and doesn’t shine through. On a journey around school, we’ll spot different light sources and trace around the shadows outside.  Using our mathematical skills, we’ll explore opaque and translucent 2-D and 3-D shapes, grouping them and making patterns. We will use shadow puppetry and craft beautiful stained glass windows. 

In Phonics we will be learning about rhyming words, alliteration and initial sounds in words. In Literacy we will be practising how to write our name every day, writing about our holidays, writing thank you letters to Father Christmas and writing about our favourite Winter animals.


Home Learning:

MiniMash: Children are encouraged to explore MiniMash at home as well as in the classroom, trying out different activities linked to learning across the curriculum.

Home Learning Project: We encourage children to complete a home learning project linked to their curriculum project being studied with some help from their grown up, if needed. Home learning projects provide a fun and creative opportunity for children to practise and apply new skills, as well as express their knowledge in a topic area.
