Communication, Language and Literacy 

This term we will be looking at a variety of stories including, Elmer, Funnybones and What the Ladybird Heard.  The children will be encouraged to listen to the stories with enjoyment before using puppets, storymaps and illustrations to retell them.  We will be continuing to use our alphabet sounds during writing activities as the children are encouraged to use their knowledge to attempt writing more complex words.  We will be writing recipes, factfiles and recounts of known stories.  We will also continue practising our letter formation.

Letter and Sounds

We will revise the sounds we have already learnt before continuing Phase 3 and more new sounds, including diagraphs and trigraphs.  The children will be encouraged to use their letter sound knowledge in their reading and writing.

Role play

Our main role play will be the supermarket.  We will also have a toy’s party, a colour tent, a puppet show, a giant story map and a superhero den.

 

Maths 

The children will continue to extend their use of number to 20 and beyond.  We will be thinking about addition and subtraction during practical sessions.  During Elmer week we will be designing repeating pattern scarves.  We will also look at positional language, using the computer software My World 3 to support their learning.  Furthermore, we will consolidate our learning about 2D shapes and begin to think about those that our 3D.

Other Areas

This term the children will be introduced to programmable toys including the Roamer and Beebots.  The children will be encouraged to investigate the world around using magnifying glasses, magnets and mirrors. 

Cooking sessions will continue as the children are encouraged to look at changes.  The children will also visit the local supermarket to buy the ingredients.

Our role play area will be a supermarket, which the children will design and create following their trips.
