Language, Literacy and
We will be practising our phonics daily this term, continuing to focus on phase 3 sounds. We will focus on spelling high frequency words and use these throughout all writing. Pupils will be supported with their reading and comprehension skills through daily GGR sessions.
Mathematics & Numeracy
In this area of learning we will be continuing to develop our number skills in discrete maths sessions, through CLIC and independently in our plan to play time. Areas we will be focusing on this term include addition and subtraction, measuring and counting money. Pupils will also take part in lots of problem-solving activities in class, outdoors and through our inquiry.
Our inquiry this term is called ‘How does your garden grow?’. We will be learning all about the life cycle of a plant and how that is affected by other species such as birds and bees. Pupils will learn the skills of how to pot and grow their own plants. Pupils will teach another class their skills and how to the care for the plants afterwards. If you would like to bring any flowers or leaves in to help grow our class garden centre role play area, we would love your help!
