Teachers: Mrs Smith and Mrs Anderton 

Communication, Language and Literacy 

 This term we will be looking at ‘Rumble in the Jungle’, 'Oliver's Fruit Salad,' 'Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs' and 'Dinosaur Roar'. The children will be introduced to various rhymes and stories.  They will be encouraged to participate through spoken language and actions, recognising rhyme and alliteration.  During the term the children will also be encouraged to take turns in conversation, listen and respond and use language to recreate roles.   Mark making materials will be readily available for children to use independently during their play throughout the term.

Letter and Sounds

The children will be consolidating their knowledge of Phase One from ‘Letters and Sounds.’ This will involve children in speaking and listening activities and prepare them for reading and writing activities throughout the year.   We will also begin phase 2 learning the sounds s,a,t,p,i,n,m,d.

Role play

Our role play area will be the home and later in the term a greengrocers.

  

Maths 

We will begin work on the two areas within this area of learning and development: Numbers and Shape, Space and Measures.

Following initial assessments, the children will then begin looking at and working in depth with numbers first to 5 and then to 10 using the ‘Numberblocks’ series.  We will think carefully about accurate counting, representations of the number, patterns in relation to number and different ways of making each number using the ‘part-  part -  whole’ model.  The children will be introduced to resources which will help them to become independent mathematicians.

Other Areas

 This term the children will be settling into the routines of the school day.  We will look at the ‘Golden Rules’ and think about their importance in our classroom. The class will be encouraged to develop independence throughout this term as they become familiar with the classroom environment.

The children will be introduced to the laptops, Ipads and other digital equipment including, digital cameras and digital timers.

We will also visit the greengrocers in Sidley, exploring different types of fruit and vegetables.  We will think about where they come from and plant our own.
