Parents please check Class Dojo to see what we are up to and to keep up to date with class updates. Check your child's Evidence Me profile to see their individual learning journey observations. 

Phonics

Last term Class A completed Phase 2 of their Phonics sounds. This term we will begin to learn phase 3 sounds. We will apply our skills in reading and writing with growing independence . 

Here are some phonics games your child could play at home...

Writing

We will be developing our writing skills by applying the new sounds we are learning to our writing. We will learn to write lists, captions, labels and simple sentences this half term. We will start to plan our ideas into sentences and will attempt to write these, making sure we apply our phonics skills to each word. 

Mathematics

This term we will be deepening our understanding of number. We will develop our confidence with addition and doubling. We will learn subtraction early on this half term. We will start to learn about number composition and number bonds.

We will learn how to count twos, which includes pair objects to count them two at a time. 

We will develop our knowledge of 2D shape and will look at some 3D shapes too, we will identify the 2D shapes that we see within 3D shapes. 

 

Here are some games your child you play at home to support counting, number recognition and shape recognition.

British Sign Language

We are currently learning a sign a day. Children know signs for the letters of the alphabet, some food and drinks, colours, feelings, question words, places, transport and lots more! 

 

PE

Our PE days are Tuesday and Friday. 

This half term children will have one lesson a week to focus on developing key skills including coordination, agility and also building stamina. 

 

Welly Walk

Children will be exploring our natural environment every week. We go on an adventure into our forest area every Friday! Make sure your wellies are in school. 

Reading at home / home learning

Children will bring home a phonics activity each day Monday-Thursday. This will be a task that consolidates learning we have done in class.

Every Friday children will bring home a reading book which is matched to their phonics ability. They should apply their phonics to read this book to an adult.  

Thank you for your continued support!

Here we are having lots of fun learning!
