 Welcome back to the Spring term. 

We hope you all had a fantastic Christmas.

This term we will be listening to lot of traditional tales.

Our first role play area will be based on a very popular traditional tale about a mischievous little girl and 3 furry animals.

Can you guess the story?

Literacy

We will be reading lots of stories such as Goldilocks and The Three Bears, Little Red Riding Hood and The Gingerbread Man.

NIBBLES The Book Monster  looks at several of these traditional tales. Nibbles, the book-eating monster, has nibbled his way out of his own book and now he's causing mischief and mayhem in other people's stories. Look out!

We will be working on  improving the accuracy of our spelling this term. We will use the phonics mats and our 'Tricky word window' to help us do this. We will continue to develop our letter formation using the continuous cursive style. 

Remember to read your reading book at home and keep practicing the phase 2 and 3 sounds in your reading folder as often as possible.

Mathematics

We will continue to work on number recognition up to and beyond 20 as well as practising accurate counting.

In practical activities and discussion we will be using the vocabulary involved in addition and subtraction. 

 

 

Physical development

Our PE session will be on a Tuesday. Please remember to bring your P.E kit and take out any earrings before your child comes to school.

Everyone is working hard to develop their fine motor skills. Can you practise doing your buttons on your shirt or dress? Can you cut straight lines and wavy lines? 

 

 

Understanding the world

In R.E we will talk about what makes every single person unique and precious? We will look at what the Bible says about Jesus. For Christians, each individual human is unique, and known and loved unconditionally by God. 

We will learn about seasonal changes and what happens to our environment as we start to see other changes to the weather and our environment. 

 

We will learn about Chinese New Year celebrations and explore the similarities and differences of a range of materials.

We will learn how to use different programs on the computer and interactive board. The children will continue to use the board to self-register every morning.

We will be continue to learn about what foods Oreo and Fudge need to help them be fit and healthy.
