This term the children have already made an excellent start by settling back into school routines and working hard in all lessons.
This term our Topic is Winter. We will talk about how the season affects the geography of our landscape. The children will talk about different types of weather and link this to their learning about the world around them and the months of the year.
This term in phonics the children will be consolidating their learning of the phase 2 sounds and beginning to learn the phase 3 sounds.
For your information, we will start be revisiting the following consonant digraphs, Ch, Sh, th and ng and then we will begin to learn vowel digraphs.
Reading and Writing
The children are now at various stages of learning to read and also really enjoying the books we read and study in class.
We will be using Michael Rosen's famous book, 'We're going on a bear hunt' as our fiction book this term and also looking at a non fiction text about Chinese New Year.
In Mathematics we are practising counting and recognition of numbers every day with the class. In addition to this the children carry out a wide variety of counting activities each week. We have revisited addition this term already and will be beginning to look at what happens to numbers when we subtract this term too.
