Welcome to Rabbits!
This term Rabbits is taught by Miss Williams and Miss Gardiner and supported by Miss Butcher and Mrs Mahmoud.
This term Rabbits class are learning all about volcanoes! In our Topic sessions we will be learning about different volcanoes all around the world and we are very excited to find out lots of interesting facts. In Literacy we are doing setting and character descriptions and later on we will be writing about volcanoes. In Maths we are finishing off our fractions and then moving on to shape and statistics.
During term 6, Rabbits class will be going to the beach and forest school will take place on Tuesdays.
This term we will be travelling back in time turning the school into a real life museum! Each Key Stage will be focusing upon a different period in time.
In Rabbits we will be learning all about Vicious Vikings. This is a great topic in which the children will have the opportunity to learn all about Viking lifestyles and even plan a Viking invasion of the school!
Throughout the term, Rabbits will also be producing their own Viking artefacts, such as shields and Viking longboats which will be displayed throughout the school in our museum.
In Maths the children will be finishing their topic on Addition and Subtraction and will be moving onto Multiplication and Division. Please encourage your child to practise their times tables at home as this will really help in class. All children should have a login to Times Table Rockstars and are expected to play regularly at home to develop their fluency skills.
In Literacy, we will be reading and rewriting the story of Beowulf. The children will be thinking carefully about description to set the scene and describe characters. Rabbits will then design their own mythical monster to innovate and rewrite their own version of the story.
Rabbits will be having Forest school sessions this half term on a Wednesday afternoon. Please double check with Miss Burton if you are unsure when you child's group is.
The children will be learning all about countries located within Africa, looking at the different climates and lifestyles and will even listen to some African music!
It will be a fantastic topic with many exciting opportunities for the children. We are all so to take part in African drumming on the 12th November!
