Terrific TransportPaddington

For next half term the children have voted to learn about different forms of transport. These will be leading on different journeys around the world from Porchester, to Peru and beyond… To introduce the topic we will be having some visits from a range of vehicles to explore.

In Literacy we will be labelling vehicles, creating a packing list- so we don’t leave anything behind and writing instructions for Paddington’s favourite sandwich. We will be diving into a range of books both fiction and non-fiction to help guide us around the world.

For Maths, we will continue our daily maths building on our current knowledge and introducing new knowledge, including more and less and number bonds.

In Expressive Art and Design, we will be watching and discussing a range of dances and music as well as researching an artist and using them as inspiration in our own art work.

We will have lots of roleplay opportunities to practice our imagination and communication skills including an airport, travel agent and home corner to name a few.

As a class we will monitor and record the weather and plants around us as the season changes. We will also look at the similarities and differences between different countries. We will continue to practice being independent, resilient and persistent.

Each week we will have PE on Wednesday and will visit the library on Thursdays. For Spring term, your child can arrive in school on Wednesday in their PE kit as they are now confident in changing.

We cannot wait to see where the journey will take us,
