Happy Spring Term!

The children have had a wonderful first term at school playing, exploring and learning. They have taken on different roles in the doctor’s surgery role play, learned how to double (with the help of the magic mirrors) and started to learn how to read and write their letters. We are so proud of what they have achieved so far and are excited for the term ahead.

Maths

This term in Maths we will be deepening our knowledge of numbers. This includes counting forwards and backwards, finding as many different ways as we can to make each number and solving problems using our mathematical skills. 

For example - Miss Wright has 3 apples and Mrs Robiquet has 2. How many apples do they have altogether? Extension: How many would they have if Mr Brettell gave them one more? 

We will be using our topic of Traditional Tales to help us explore shape, space and measure - comparing the sizes of chairs in the 3 bears’ house, playing “What's the time Mr Wolf?” and weighing the giant’s golden eggs.

English

We have now learned our first set of sounds in phonics. We learn songs to help us remember how they sound and rhymes to help us with letter formation. You will find a copy of these rhymes at the bottom of the page.

Now we have learned the individual letter sounds, we move on to learning digraphs (where two letters make one sound) and we start to work on combining these sounds to make words. In addition, we continue to practise tricky words (such as the, you, all) which the children need to be able to read by sight as they cannot be sounded out. You will find a copy of tricky words the children need to learn at the bottom of the page.

We are always around at collection and drop off time to hear any important little updates; nothing is too trivial to tell us. Knowing all about your child helps us ensure they are happy and learning well. Watch this space for news and regular photo updates.
