Tutor Group 4 Spring 2022

January 2022

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome back to you all. We wish you a happy, healthy New Year! We are looking forward to an exciting and engaging Spring Term. 

 

Topic 

This term’s topic is called “Time travellers.” We will be looking at the past using timelines.

 

We will continue to focus on ensuring our students are happy, nurtured, feel safe and are able to engage with their learning.

 

English 

This term we will be doing more phonics work whilst continuing to focus on literacy and reading. We will also work on ‘Shape Coding’ with Our Speech and Language therapist regularly, which will help our students speak and write in fuller, well ordered sentences.  We will be reading a wide range of books chosen by the students and will be practising writing sentences using symbols and PODD books.

Maths 

We will be looking at Number, Measures and Shapes. The students will be learning about time and looking at their daily routines as well as the days of the week and months of the year. The students will also be learning about measuring weight, and will be attempting to apply these to real life situations within cooking.

 

PSHE

Within PSHE we will be focusing on the student’s wellbeing. We will be talking about our feelings, and learning ways to express ourselves, as well as regulating and talking about how we feel.

 

Science 

We will be learning about space and planets. We will be talking about the different planets that form the Milky Way. We will also learn about the different phases of the Moon and much more about the other planets that are close to us. 

 

Thank you in advance for your support.  We look forward to discussing your child’s progress at their PSP ( Personal Support Plans) and Annual Review meetings.

Yours sincerely

 

Nora (class teacher)
