Our Topic for Term 2 is 'A Winter Wonderland'. We have lots of fun activities planned!
In Literacy, we will be starting our News Writing, labelling and sequencing the Nativity Story and writing Christmas lists for Father Christmas and posting them in the local post box.
In Mathematics, we will be ordering and understanding the value of numbers, sorting 2D and 3D shapes, looking at more or less and starting to look at practical addition.
We will also be doing other activities such as making and wrapping presents, making Christmas Cards, exploring Pumpkins, making Firework pictures and practicing our Nativity!
Literacy: In Literacy this week, we have been finishing learning about the story of Rama and Sita, acting it out and sequencing it.
Phonics: This week, we will be learning the sounds 'i', 'n', 'm' and 'd'. We will also be practising segmenting and blending simple CVC words for reading and writing.
Numeracy: In Numeracy this week, we will be recognising and ordering numbers to 10/20.
Plan, Do and Review: In PDR this week we have been making Rangoli patterns with beans, lentils, and pasta, cooking food for Diwali celebrations in the mud kitchen, observing and discussing the changes that occur in Autumn, making firework pictures with powder paint, making Diva lamps with clay and writing Diwali cards.
Jenner, Newton and Einstein will be having PE on a Tuesday morning. These will be INDOOR PE sessions so please can you make sure that your child has suitable clothing for these sessions (ie. shorts, PE t-shirt and plimsoles). Can you also make sure that all earrings are removed on this day.
We change reading books on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Please ensure you have your yellow reading record and your reading books on these days. It is useful to keep them in the book bag every day so that we can read with your child at any point. You will get one book each time and it is important to read something every day.
Please bring a named water bottle into school every day so that your child can have a drink whenever they need one.
Please name all of your children's clothes and their belongings
Your weekly challenge will come home on a Friday and will need to be returned on a Wednesday. If it is not returned by then it will not be marked.
