Welcome to Class 1!
This half term we will be working on the topic “A Land Down Under”. We will be using our map skills to locate Australia in the world and use simple compass directions to locate features. We will link our art work to the traditional aboriginal styles. We will learn more about the differences in weather, climate and lifestyle in the UK and Australia as well as learning about unique Australian animals and their habitats.
In English we will be reading some of the Dreamtime stories linked to our theme work. We will make predictions, use inference to suggest what characters might think or say and retell or change the stories in our own writing. In Maths we will be consolidating our learning in number and place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, measures and in particular money.
