This half term we will be learning about animals. We are beginning this topic with our trip to Cannon Hall Farm. Following this we will learn about their favourite animals and learn the story of The Three Little Pigs, which we will then change. Make sure you look on our Talk 4 Writing page at our action story!
What we are learning this half term?
This term we will be reviewing and revisiting phase 3 and moving onto phase 4. We will be
learning new tricky words:
some, one, said, come, do, so, were, when, have, there, out, like, little, what.
We are also continuing to focus on our handwriting and how we form each letter correctly.
In Maths we are working towards the Early Learning Goal:
Children count reliably with numbers from one to 20, place them in order and say
which number is one more or one less than a given number. Using quantities and
objects, they add and subtract two single-digit numbers and count on or back to find
the answer. They solve problems, including doubling, halving and sharing.
Homework and book bags
We are continuing with the #30 challenges; thank you for all the hard work with the these!
Any additional work that they have completed at home can be brought into school to share with their class and we can include this in our learning journey.
In addition to the #30 please practise all phonemes and tricky words with your child.
Books will be changed every Tuesday and Friday so please make sure your child brings their bags on these days.
We expect all children to read or share a book for 5 minutes, 3 times a week. In their reading
record book you need to write the date, the name of the book and what pages they have read
with a short comment on how they have done in their reading record.
