English

In English, our Literacy Counts unit is 'The Storm Whale' by Benji Davies. In this unit we will be writing a friendship story and a whale poem.

 

Reading

This half term your child will be given their first reading book and diary. Please read your child's reading book with them every day for 10 minutes. A little often has a huge impact on children at this age. Children need to have their reading books and diaries in their bags everyday, so they can be ready to be read with.  We change children's reading books every Friday.

 

Maths

Our maths work this term will follow the First4Maths scheme of learning. In number, we will be counting beyond 20, looking at number bonds to 10 and doubles. In 'Measurement, Shapes and Spatial Thinking', we will be comparing and ordering capacity and looking at time.

 
 

PE

This half term, PE will be on Monday and Friday. Please make sure your child comes into school wearing their PE kit on these days.
