Literacy and English - We have started to learn to read and write letter sounds. Once we know more of the letter sounds, we will work on blending the sounds to read and write some two and three letter words. We are also working on reading and writing common words and can sing the alphabet. We are hoping to start our reading books soon. In writing, we have been working on making our drawings more detailed in order to tell our story.
Numeracy and Mathematics - We are learning number order to 10. We are practising counting on and back in order to have a secure understanding of the numberline. We are working on forming our numbers correctly. We have also been working on lots of other Numeracy and Maths topics such as 2D shapes, size and amount and symmetry.
Health and Wellbeing - Through this term we will be looking at the key theme of 'Safe'. We will explore safety in different contexts including in school and road safety.
Term 1 in PE will focus on games to develop our skills in the Gym Hall and ball handling skills. Please note for the safety of all pupils it is important that your child has secure fitting, non-slippery indoor shoes and removes all jewellery for these sessions. Loose and/or long hair should also be tied back and plasters provided to cover earings. Thank you.
Topic - Our Science topic (with Mrs McNab) will cover Senses Topic - Other topics we will be working on include ICT skills, Drama skills, massage and activities with our Buddies.
