What will we be learning? 


Literacy, Languages and Communication: 

We are so impressed with the amazing progress made in this area last term. We will be continuing to embed Phase 2 sounds and some children will move on to Phase 3. We are also learning to read and write high frequency words. 

We prioritise developing oracy skills across the school and are working to extend our sentences. 

Our Welsh topics are: Y Tywydd a Siap a Lliwiau 

Our Spanish topics are: Music and Shapes






Mathematics and Numeracy:

We deliver maths through the Maths No Problem scheme where we explore all concepts through concrete, pictorial and then abstract. We are problem solving and learning: 

  • Counting on
  • More and less
  • Doubling and halving
  • Even and odd numbers
  • Mass and capacity
  • Money
  • Interpreting graphs
  • 2D shapes
  • Drawing routes


Inquiry-Based Learning
