Welcome to Tala Class


Tala Class Teacher is: Mrs Cannings

Tala Class Teaching Assistant is: Mrs Wheeler


Our topic for Spring Term 1 is: Town Mouse, Country Mouse

During this geography-based topic, children will learn about life in towns and the countryside. Using key vocabulary, we will compare their features and identify similarities and differences between them.


In literacy, we will be reading ‘The Little Red Hen'. Following the Talk for Writing framework, the children will be creating their own traditional tale. We will also be writing recounts.


In science, we will be learning about plants. The children will be looking at a variety of plants and trees and their basic structure. We will be planting seeds and bulbs, observing them over time to gather and record data to help us identify the conditions that plants need to grow and stay healthy.


Our key question in R.E is, ‘Was it always easy for Jesus to show friendship?' We will be exploring when it is easy and difficult to show friendship and discuss when Jesus may have found it difficult.


Our focus in PSHE, is ‘Dreams and Goals’, where will we discuss how we can achieve our goals as well as help others achieve their goals.


Maths - We follow White Rose Maths in addition to 'Jungle Maths' and 'Rainbow Maths' to support mental arithmetic and develop mathematical fluency.


Swimming Sessions are every Tuesday - please send in swimsuits/trunks and a towel. Please also pack swimming caps and goggles if you have them.


Forest School sessions happen every Tuesday - please send in wellies and waterproof coats/ trousers for this session. We have plenty of waterproof trousers or wellies if required.


PE Sessions will be Thursdays with our PE Specialist Instructor. Please send in PE Kits on a Monday in case we fit in an additional session or your child needs to get changed at any point. We also complete the 'Daily Mile' each day so your child can change into PE shoes if preferred.


Homework - Across the school we use an activity grid approach which provides the opportunity to apply and consolidate classroom learning. Please choose one activity per week to complete at home. 

Here is the homework grid for this half term.
