Our work- Autumn Term:  

We have learnt a lot since we started school in September, in particular how to be a good friend and how to share.  


In Literacy we have been reading traditional tales such as Goldilocks and the Three Bears and Little Red Riding Hood as well as a variety of other stories.  We have used Talk for Writing to help us remember the stories. We have been learning our sounds using Read Write Inc and can now recognise most of our single sounds. We are beginning to blend using these sounds in our reading books. We have started Talk for Reading using The Owl Babies to help us build up our understanding of a story. We have also been practicing writing our names, either in our handwriting books or on whiteboards with our name cards. 


In Maths we have been using Numberblocks to help us learn our numbers to 5. We can now subitise using these numbers. This means we can look and see the number without having to count them! We have also been learning about 2D shapes and positional language as well as repeating patterns. We used leaves and acorns to help us make repeating patterns in the garden. 


We have learnt about harvest by reading the Little Red Hen story and by talking about what harvest means. We have also learnt about Fireworks Night where we learnt a poem and put music to it.  


We have worked really hard this term and cannot wait for this to continue after Christmas with our work on Beauty and the Beast. 

Our work- Spring Term:


In Literacy this term, we have been learning how to use our sounds to write words and simple sentences.  We have recapped on our single sounds and have been learning our ‘special friends.’  (‘Special friends’ have more than one letter but make one sound e.g. ‘ay’ or ‘igh.’)  During our ‘Aliens’ topic we particularly enjoyed using ‘Talk for Writing’ to retell the story of ‘The Smeds and the Smoos.’  During our ‘Heroes’ topic we really enjoyed our visit from the dentist, who taught us all about how to look after our teeth.


In Maths we have been using Numberblocks to help us to learn our numbers to 10.  We have been working on different ways to make 10 e.g. 5+5.  We have also been learning about 3D shapes, patterns, length, height and time.


We have also taken part in lots of other activities this term including World Book Day, Red Nose Day and an Easter Egg hunt.
