Belton (Yr 1)
Belton Class continues to be led by Mrs Jagger (Mon-Weds) and Mrs Ross (Weds-Friday). We are supported by Mrs See (TA) and Mrs Want (HLTA).
Welcome back to Term 4!
We hope you all had a wonderful break and are now ready for the next term.
In term 4 we are going to ‘AFRICA’. We will be going on safari, looking at all the animals sorting and classifying them, just like real zoologists!
As Geographers we will be taking a in-depth look at Kenya comparing and contrasting where and how the Maasai people live.
In literacy we will be writing letters, riddles, descriptions of people and settings, retelling stories and reading many traditional tales from Africa.
As Artists we will creating African silhouette pictures, thinking about how to mix different shades of paints and creating our own animal painting, looking carefully at the patterns on their fur and skin. We will also be tasting lots of exotic fruits to design and create our own fruit salad, inspired by the story Handa’s Surprise.
We will continue to look at Judaism in the family and comparing the Jewish family to our own.
If you have any experiences or artefacts that you could share with us about Africa please let us know as we would love to have you visit our class and tell us all about them.
Please could we remind you to check your child’s PE kit is still clearly named and in school every Monday.
Finally, we are having a real push on reading again this term, please can you hear your child read 4 times a week and sign their reading record. Your child will then gain a house point and perhaps another dip in the jar!
