In this PSHE and science based topic, the children will learn all about themselves and what makes them, them. They will learn the names of the body parts and their functions. They will find out about different types of families and write about their own. They will discover that we are all different and unique and that is what makes us special.

 

 

 

This learning will be supported by the exploration of the text ‘Dogger’ written by Shirley Hughes. Children will make predictions about the story and explore the different feelings of losing something special.

 

 

Our home learning for this half term is to create a memory box. This is to be filled with items that tell the story of them. They will show and explain these boxes to the class. We will use these boxes as a stimulus for our writing.

 

 

 

 

We also ask that you work with your child to create a family tree. We will use this in PSHE to discuss the different ways our families are made. We will focus on that even though our families may look different we all have people who are special to us. 

 

How can you help your child?

  • Reassure your child - Key Stage One is fun and everything will be ok.
  • Support your child with their homework - They will receive regular homework and may need help to begin with.  Each child will be given a reading record and these need to be in school every day.
  • Talk to us - Please let us know straight away if there is anything we need to know.
  • Work with us - If you have any problems or worries speak to your child's class teacher or Mrs Hogan, and we will try our best to sort these out for you.  Only by working together can we ensure your child achieves their very best.
