Our topic this term is ‘World Explorers’ with a visit to Northwich and the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester to support our learning. We focus our learning on the exciting story ‘Meerkat Mail’. Sunny the Meerkat is going to be travelling all around the world and we are going to be writing about what happens to him along the way and deciding on the best place for Sunny to live. Some of the questions that we will be exploring are What are the similarities and the differences between Northwich and Lostock Gralam? How has travel and tourism changed in and around the Northwich area over time? How has transport changed over time? Where would be a good place for Sunny the Meerkat to live?
In Literacy, we are exploring a range of exciting texts to support our learning, including, Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers and Nibbles: The Book Monster by Emma Yarlett.
Starlings will be working very hard on their phonics work this year. We will focus on reading both real and made up, non-sense words in preparation for the Year One Phonics Screening Check in June.
We are looking forward to a busy and exciting year!
