What are we learning this term?

This term we will be continuing with Phonics, recognising sounds, and blending them together and segmenting words for spelling. We are focusing on reading and writing captions and sentences with consistent use of capital letters and full stops.


We will be exploring a range of Maths topics such as number, shape, space and measure. We will be ensuring that the children have a solid understanding of basic skills and can apply them in different contexts.  We will also be continuing to learn problem solving skills and how to use them across the curriculum.

This term our Skills Enrichment topic is ‘Why do Zebras Have Stripes?’ During this topic we will be applying the skills we have learnt in Literacy and Numeracy sessions across all areas of the curriculum. We will also be learning all about Africa and wild animals.


Children will be using technology in school to collaborate on a piece of digital work. We will be looking at how we can use technology in school to produce pieces of digital work that include text, images, video and audio.

Help me with my Phonics!

By encouraging your children to learn these phonics songs and help them say the sounds correctly you could improve their progress in school!

Let's Get Fit | Count to 100 | Count to 100 Song | Counting to 100 | Jack Hartmann

Teach your children to count to 100 as they get some great exercise too. This cool kid-friendly song starts out with a message about staying healthy and fit and having fun counting to 100 together. It's a great count to 100 song for all children.

Thank you for your continued Support!!
