Houses and Homes
We are now on our learning journey called ‘Houses and Homes.’ This learning journey begins with the children exploring the homes featured in traditional tales’. The children will focus on the story ‘Hansel and Gretel. As part of the stunning start the children will ‘visit’ the gingerbread house and bake gingerbread.
During the learning journey children will learn about the history of changes to houses and homes over time. In science we will investigate materials and in geography will will create maps. As a ‘Marvellous middle’ the children will go on a walk around the local area.
For our ‘Fabulous finish’ the children will study and create homes from around the world.
Additionally, the main focus in Maths will be numbers 0 to 10. The children will be counting forwards and backwards, identifying one more and one less and representing numbers in different ways. In PE, the focus will be athletics and golf. Finally, in phonics we will be revisiting phase 2 and building a deeper understanding of phase 3 sounds.
