This term Fairy Tales will be our main book focus. Through these books the children will be learning to retell stories, write simple sentences, sequence events in a story and write captions. They will use familiar stories as a stimulus for their own writing and will write character profiles. We will identify the main characters and settings of stories and use puppets to role play stories and experiences. We will listen to and recite poems and rhymes; select suitable words to describe poetry and write our own poems. We will use the Letters and Sounds programme daily to continue to develop the children phonics skills.
The children will be working on reading and writing numbers from 1 to 20 in numerals and words. They will be counting up to and across 100, identifying 1 more and 1 less than a number using a range of resources such as numberlines and 100 squares. The children will solve one step problems that involve addition and subtraction, add and subtract 1 and 2 digit numbers to 20 and know how to write them in a mathematical sentence, they will begin to recall number bonds for 10 and related subtraction facts within 20. The children will sequence events in chronological order using language such as: before and after, next, first, today, yesterday, tomorrow, morning, afternoon and evening. They will use language relating to dates, including days of the week, weeks, months and years. The children will work on recognising and naming common 2-D and 3-D shapes, including rectangles, squares, circles, triangles, cuboids, cubes, pyramids and spheres.
