Our Cherry Trees and Cherry Blossoms have different topic paintings this term!
Our Cherry Tree's will be looking at The Great Fire of Lonon painting by Lieve Verschuier and our Cherry Blossoms will be looking at the Weeping Woman by Pablo Picasso.
In Cherry Blossom we will be looking at books such as Elmer, The Mixed Up Chameleon and Aliens Love Underpants this Autumn Term.
In English, the children are learning how to write simple sentences and are discovering adjectives to help them make their sentences more interesting.
In maths, the children are learning about numbers and using them for simple addition and subtraction problems.
In Cherry Tree we will be looking at books that link to our topic painting such as Vlad and the Great Fire of London, You wouldn’t want to be in the Great Fire of London and Toby and the Great Fire of London.
In English, the children are learning how to write a recount and are discovering useful words to help with writing longer sentences.
In maths, the children are learning about place value and using this to solve addition and subtraction facts. They will also be learning about money, time and measure.
Speech and Language Therapy is very important at Southmead. We have a SALT who is in twice a week, every day Tuesday and Wednesday.
Please ensure that you child brings their PE kit into school on a Monday. We want the majority of children in the Base to have PE sessions with their mainstream classes which are all on different days! Having their PE kit in their locker all week will be easier for us all. We will send it home on a Friday.
If you have any questions please ask Mrs Stockdale or Miss Mathurin on the playground at the beginning or end of the day, or get in touch with the school office to arrange an appointment.
We are so excited for autumn term in Cherry Class!
