Tarka Spring Term 2022

Week ending 21st January
In art, we have recapped primary and secondary colours and mixed tertiary colours on a colour wheel. We have learnt that we can make a colour lighter by tinting, using white paint.
In Science, we have classified different objects according to the materials they are made from and thought about why things are made of particular materials.
We started off our music learning for this term, listening to BBC Ten Pieces Finlandia. We thought about how the music made us feel and had a go at drawing the images the music created in our minds. We also explored making a song quieter and louder.


The children have loved being back in school this week, enjoying sharing their Christmas news with their friends.

Our topic for this term is ‘Who Lives in a House Like This?’ The children enjoyed designing their front cover for their topic books, drawing lots of different houses.

We have started a new sequence in English. Our text is The Three Little Pigs. We have watched and listened to different versions of the story. The children had a go at writing the story themselves. We then read and sequenced the version we will be focussing on.

In maths we have been learning to count in twos and tens. We have been familiarising ourselves with money, identifying the value of coins from 1p to £2. Tarka class have enjoyed using real and pretend money to buy something using our shop role-play.
