What will we be getting up to?


Term one

What will we be up to in Venus  class?
The holidays are over, and the start of term is here... I hope you're as excited as we are to get stuck into this brand new year! We have already had so much fun together, now let's try and double it this year, with fun and games and more to learn, see you on the 6th with a great big cheeeeer!


Welcome to Venus class!

This half term we are thinking about parties!  We will be thinking about how we make food for parties. As scientists we will be thinking about different materials and what can be made from them.

In English we are reading and retelling the story of the Magic Porridge Pot and learning the magic words to make it stop cooking!

In Maths we are thinking about counting, we will count different objects, count numbers up to 100 and learn where they go on a number line. We are also going to looking at shape and pictograms!


We are also learning new phonics this year with RWI to help us with our reading and writing! You can find out more about FRED talk on the Read Write Inc website here


Every weekend one of us will be taking home our class panda. We hope you let him join in doing things with you at the weekend and write his diary with him to share with the rest of the class on Monday! He's very excited!
