Mad About Maths

On Friday, we will start sending home your child's Maths Passport along with activities for you to support them with at home. This will help them to develop important skills we are working on in class and nurture their love of the subject. 

We will also be sending home maths homework packs, which have a variety of games and activities for you to enjoy together at home. When your child has completed ten of these activities, they will recieve a Mad About Maths award. 


Our Project - Summer Term 2021

This term our project question is 'What makes the world beautiful?'

We will start by thinking about a rainbow, and the colours that are in it. We will be looking for these colours in our environment.

We will also be looking at minibeasts. We will be learning about their habitats and life cycles. The book that we will be reading is 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' by Eric Carle.

We would like to make a minibeast habitat for our outdoor area.

You can help your child at home by looking out for colours and minibeasts in your home and when you are out in your local environment.

Holly class will be looking at how we can improve our environment, picking up litter, reducing reusing and recycling our rubbish.


Some key vocabulary that you can use with your child are:


wonderful or pretty


the planet we live on


a small animal or insect


below the earth’s surface


animals, plants and other things not made by people


living thing that grows in the earth and has a stem, leaves and roots


get bigger in size


neat and organised


no dirt or marks


rubbish left outside


re-use things that have already been used
