About our Term...
This term Year One are learning about Africa. The children were all so keen to share their homework with us and we have all learnt lots already! We have been tuning in to Africam, which allows us to see real animals coming to visit a waterhole in Africa. Our first Core Book this term is based around a similar lake, where a Very Large Crocodile lives. Enormous Elephant and his friends are thirsty, when suddenly "SNAKK!", the crocodile grabs Elephants trunk. The animals pull and pull and eventually the crocodile lets go and all the animals tumble over, but they all look very different now! We will be writing a story in the style of this traditional folk tale in a few weeks, but right now we are getting creative with retelling the story in many different ways, including song, animation and acting out. We will also be creating African inspired art and using instruments. In Maths, we are using larger numbers and working on place value, and will be investigating length and height. You will have received an invitation to the Phonics Cafe on 6th March, so for an informative session (and a cup of tea and a slice of cake!) please do come and join us.
