This term we will be exploring the question 'Would you rather roam the sky or live under the sea?’ We will be learning all about animals, transport and space to enable us to answer our question. Our learning will start with an exciting virtual trip to Chester Zoo, where we will be looking at animal environments and their adaptations. We are so excited! Our learning will end, with us as artists, creating a virtual art exhibition for parents and special visitors to view and buy our artwork, which will represent where we would rather live! To support our local community we will be voting for the charity/cause we will donate the money to that we raise from our exhibition.

Throughout the term we will learn to launch a rocket into space, just like Neil Armstrong, as well as creating our own rockets! We will also become flight attendants and pilots as we learn about air travel. We will even get the chance to fly on a magic carpet around the world to see how other people live.

In maths this term we will be securing our learning of numbers to 20. We will be consolidating our understanding of one more and one less and adding and subtracting within 20. We will then be learning about halving, doubling and sharing. Please help your child practise counting, writing and reading numbers to 20 as often as possible. In English we will be immersing ourselves in a range of texts about the sky and sea to ensure we continue to develop the phonic skills needed to read and write sentences. Reading continues to play a vital role in our learning and we hope to broaden the children's experience of authors and genres through some interesting texts!
