This is a quick overview of our learning for the next few weeks;



Our Topic for this half term is Transport.

Thank you for all the amazing art work you have sent in as part of our home learning.




If you have any questions, thoughts or resources you would like to share please do come in and see us.

Thank you for your continued support.




 'Daily readers' has been working really well! By giving the children a reading day we are able to assess their reading each week. (Teacher/T.A) Thank you to all the parents who have listened to children read in addition to this. It makes a real difference. 

If you listen to your child read at home please write a comment in their organiser. (At least three times a week please)

Thank you for supporting your child with their target words each week. Don't forget to ask your child to put their words into sentences on the back.  (Little and often is the key!) 


Great App!!!!

'Teach your monster to read' is a fantastic app to download onto your phone or tablet. 




Our Maths learning over the next few weeks will focus on numbers to 10. We will be counting to 10 forwards and backwards, reading and writing numbers in numerals and words. We will be identifying one more and one less than a given number. We will identify and represent numbers using objects and pictorial representations including the number line and use the language of equal to, more than, less than (fewer), most and least. 

We will then move onto addition and subtraction within 10, reading, writing and interpreting mathematical statements involving addition (+), subtraction (-) and equals (=). We will be solving one step problems involving addition and subtraction, using concrete objects and pictorial representations and missing number problems.



This half term we will begin our year long experiment observing seasonal changes on trees. 



This half term we will be focusing on "Materials."

We will identify different materials and what they are made from. Describe the properties of a variety of everyday materials and work scientifically and perform simple tests to find answers to questions about everyday materials.
