The Grange Community Infant School

I play, I learn, I belong


Buttercup Class

This term our topic is called 'This is me' we have spent the last few weeks reading the story of 'This is our house' by Micheal Rosen, this led us to drawing pictures of our houses and labelling them. 

We will move on to explore the book 'What makes me a me?' by Ben Faulks. We will discuss things we are good at and things we find tricky. 


In maths we will be exploring our numbers to 10. The children have started to show their understanding of numbers by filling in missing number lines and using ordinal number language such as first, second, third etc. 

Next week we will look at the process of using a part-whole method. Children will explore number bonds by looking at a whole number and identifying different bonds (parts) to make their number .


In science we are exploring materials. We started by identifying what materials you can have such as wood, plastic, metal, fabric, glass etc and what different objects are made from. We will begin to deepen our understanding of the properties of materials and thinking of why a window may be made out of glass, or why is a bridge made out of metal. 


In history we are exploring 'How do our toys compare to those from the 1960's?' By using a range of images children have been discussing which toys are different such as electronic toys and which toys are the same such as Barbie Dolls.


In RHE (Relationships and Health Education) children are carrying on from their learning in Early Years regarding the Zones of Regulations. Children have been recapping on the four zones of sad, happy, fizzy and angry and identifying which different emotions fit into each of the four zones. 



If you have any questions please do catch one of us at the end of the day.
