Class Information

What are we learning this term?

''Welcome Winter!'

This term we will be thinking about seasonal changes and knowing what happens during different times of the year.  We will be sharing winter stories about animals and weather, creating seasonal artwork, finding out about snow and ice and later in the term we will be looking out for signs of spring in nature.  In worship we will be thinking about having 'courage' and during our class RE circle times we will be considering how different cultures celebrate the New Year around the world.

We will be continuing to encourage the children to extend their own personal goals and learning, alongside teaching them the key skills and knowledge in Maths, Writing and Reading.  They will be consolidating their number knowledge and will begin to add and subtract numbers within 5, then 10.  They will learn the number bonds to 5, then 10.  In phonics they will continue to become more proficient at blending and sounding out when reading, as well as continuing to learn the new phonemes, ng/ sh/ ch/ th /ay/ee/igh/ow/oo/ ar/ or/ er/ oy/ ou/ air. The children will be writing their names confidently and using a comfortable pencil grip, they will control their pencil, pen or brush and form most letter shapes correctly.

Before we break up for half term we will be assessing your child's number knowledge and reading/phonic level to ensure that they are on track and making progress.  Please continue to reinforce and practise at home with your child- it makes a HUGE difference to their understanding in class.
