Spring term 2

exploring musical instruments( recycled materials)

Our topic this half term is 'Far Away homes' 


In Science children will identify and classify  pictures of animals by putting them into simple groups, then they will try to identify an attribute of a habitat pointing out something they find when exploring a habitat, e.g. points out a bug found in soil . 

We will also listen to and children will engage with a range of music while playing a range of classroom instruments in the manner that has been demonstrated, e.g. hit,shaken, plucked, they will imitate an action with their instrument to play loudly or quietly, playing random rhythms on an untuned instrument over a tune played by someone else.

Out targets for music will be linked to the focus in PE sessions, children will be asked to respond to changes in sound or music with body movements, while following a simple dance movement with support, e.g. waves arms,links simple actions in a dance.

In Science we are learning about earth and space/Light/Day and night. Children will be identifying colours they see in the rainbow and will be investigating what produces light at daytime and what we can use to produce light at nighttime.


During our PSHE lessons children are learning to take turns in a game with help
from a member of staff and also to take part in co-operative play with another peer.
Children will be working on their individual targets, e.g. put coat on, hang it on peg, learning where their own possessions are located and being able to request help form staff if required. 

Children are learning to take turns and play cooperatively with other peers

In Oak 2 class we teach explicit, systematic phonics using a newly adopted phonics program, Letterland. Letterland is a unique, phonics-based approach to teaching reading, writing and spelling . The Letterland characters transform plain black letter shapes into child-friendly characters who live in an imaginary place called Letterland. Simple stories about the Letterland characters, explain the alphabet so that children are motivated to listen, to think and to learn. Letterland is a multi-sensory approach to learning. Children will be introduced to alphabet letter shapes and sounds, expand vocabulary and explore phonemic awareness while having fun!
