Wow, how are we already in the Spring term? We hope you had a wonderful break and feel refreshed and ready for lots more exciting learning!


Our class book this half-term is called All Aboard for the Bobo Road by Stephen Davies.

All aboard for the Bobo Road! Fatima and Galo load the luggage while their dad, Big Ali, drives the bus. Help count on bikes, sacks of rice, melons and even goats and chickens as the bus travels past Gurunsi houses, the hippo lake, waterfalls and jungle, all the way to Bobo.

We will be going on a beautiful adventure through Africa as we join the passengers on the bus all the way to the Bobo Road! During our writing lessons, we will be writing a setting description based on what we see and a letter to share the amazing experience.

In maths, we will be getting stuck into number and place value within 50, which by making groups and partitioning tens and ones, using number lines and estimating on them, and finding one more and one less. We will also look at length and height. We will be learning timetables for the first time (exciting!) and will be starting with counting in twos.

Our science topic will see us exploring the senses and working scientifically to identify patterns in data. We will be considering how we use each sense and completing sensory tours to put our senses to the test!

In PE, we will be perfecting our gymnastic skills in floor-based activities and using equipment. Our P.E. will continue to be on a Wednesday so make sure to wear the correct P.E. kit!

Our geography topic is all about ‘Our Amazing Country’, where we will look at the U.K., its major cities and the human and physical features of each country.
