St Anne's Infants' School


Reach for the Stars

Term 3

Happy New Year! We hope that you all had a good break. We are looking forward to term 3 and all the fun that it will bring!



Enquiry learning

Our enquiry this term is 'where is my school?' The enquiry will begin with a letter from an alien that has been found on our school grounds. The children will develop their geographic skills and language in order to write a letter back to Loy (the alien) along with a map and key to describe the locality of our school. 

The children will identify the UK and its countries as well as exploring physical and human features in our locality. They will then compare these to other areas of the world.

Children will develop their geographical skills by using aerial photographs and maps to recognise landmarks and human and physical features before devising their own maps with a simple key.



As authors we will be enjoying the story ‘Aliens Love Underpants’ by Claire Freedman. 

The children will be exploring question marks, exclamation marks as well as using 'and' to join two separate ideas together e.g. 'I like visiting my friend and I like it when we go to the park together.'



As mathematicians we will be continuing to understand the composition of numbers and how numbers can be made in different ways e.g. 7 is made of 4 and 3; 7 is made of 5 and 2.

We will then begin learning about 2D and 3D shapes. We will learn the names and properties of shapes and explore them in fun practical ways by making shape pictures and models. 2D shapes explored will be square, triangle, rectangle, pentagon, hexagon. 3D shapes explored will be cube, cuboid, sphere, cylinder and cone.


Philosopher (PSHE)

We move onto the Dreams and Goals jigsaw piece whereby the children learn how to set achievable goals and plan how to reach them over the term. This links really nicely with our Star Values of self-belief, being adventurous, resilient and successful. We would love to hear about dreams and goals you are working on together at home.
