What will we be learning? 


Literacy, Languages and Communication: 

We will be starting to learn Phase 2 phonic sounds, learning how to form letters correctly and working on our emergent writing skills. 

We will engage with lots of fun, practical activities to develop reading, writing and oracy skills daily. 

We are also going to be learning how to ask and answer simple Welsh questions and emotions in Spanish.







Mathematics and Numeracy:

Through engaging and exciting maths sessions we will work on basic maths skills such as recognising patterns, counting skills, ordering and beyond. We will use our outside classroom as much as possible to develop maths skills. We also have daily CLIC sessions to further develop counting, learning number facts and so forth.


Inquiry-Based Learning 

‘We are Special’ 

Our first inquiry is all about how we are special and celebrating our communities. We will start by looking at ourselves and what makes us special and different, then looking at our families, building up to an end of inquiry celebration for our familial community. 

There will be homework set in the future based on this inquiry.
