Welcome to Fir Class page.


This term our topic is Arrivals and Departures and links with our learning in Geography in which we will be learning about location knowledge, this involves being able to name, locate and identify characteristics of the four countries and capital cities of the United Kingdom and the surrounding area and includes Geographical skills and fieldwork using world maps, atlases and globes to identify hot and cold areas of the world. In Religious Education we will be learning about the Jewish Faith and belonging to a Jewish Community, this will involve looking at the different celebrations that are celebrated at home as well as the different festivals that Jews celebrate. We will learn about the different artefacts, prayers, songs and food that are involved during these festivals and celebrations and continuing our new area of learning in RE Salvation. Our Christian Value is Peace so we are thinking about what peace looks like in our lives and around the world and linking to stories within the bible.


In English we will continue to build on our learning ensuring that we are using capital letters and full stops correctly in a sentence, writing the words that we have chosen in our sentence and ensuring that our letters are formed correctly. We are working on our grammar skills to ensure that our writing is grammatically correct, spellings to ensure more accuracy and starting to use a range of connective words and adjectives to improve our writing. We are learning the skill of checking our own work by re-reading a sentence to ensure that we have all words in the sentence and that it makes sense. We will be looking at stories from different cultures along with stories where different countries are visited. We will continue our daily phonic sessions and preparing for the phonic screen that will take place in mid June.


In maths we will be learning about multiplication, division and fractions and continue to consolidate our place value and number skills and developing strategies for the applying four operations in calculations. We will also be consolidating our learning for measure, position and direction, time and shape.
