Spring Term

Our Learning Challenge question for this half term is..


What does Beegu think of life on planet Earth?


We will be learning and using different skills across the curriculum to answer this question.



Our book for this term is called Beegu by Alexis Deacon.

We will use our Talk For Writing skills to plan, orally rehearse and write our own Beegu stories. We will be looking closely at the nouns and adjectives that are used.


If you would like to practise key writing skills at home please use the following websites, games and videos. 





Websites:   Phonics play    Teach your Monster to Read  Letters and Sounds games 



In Maths we will look at counting forwards and backwards to 50 and recognising and writing these numbers. We will be finding one more and one less, addition and subtraction and comparing numbers. Later in the term we will practise counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.

Throughout our Maths learning we will explore with a range of apparatus such as Numicon, tens frames, part-whole model, blocks and counters to enable us to really understand the concepts being taught.

We will be using the story Beegu to explore and learn about materials and their properties.



Homework challenge – Can you use junk modelling to create the space craft that Beegu may have come to Earth in? 

Be as creative and adventurous as you like!

Bring it into school after the February half term break so that it can be used for our corridor display!
