End of Term 1

Tamarins have had a busy term 1 exploring our theme, Street Detectives. The children have enjoyed developing their mapping skills, making keys and using grid references to identify specific buildings and features within the local area. Our walk around the village helped bring our classroom work to life and the sun even shone for us. Our focus on locality has also led us to create collages of land use, map drawings and fact pages about what we have found out.

Next term our theme will be, Fire! Fire! The children will be diving into the history of 1666 to find out about The Great Fire of London and the diary of Samuel Pepys. In English we will be using the story Kassim and the Greedy Dragon to support us to write our own narratives as well as exploring the text Toby and The Great Fire of London. We will be looking at a range of non-fiction texts to support our theme and writing. In Maths we will be building on our knowledge of place value, addition and subtraction through money. We will also be learning to solve multiplication and division problems using a range of resources to support us.
