Year R

Our Autumn 2  topic is ‘Tell me a Story’

This half term we will be reading a range of traditional tales and books written by Julia Donaldson. We will be focusing on story language and retelling stories in our role play and helicopter stories. We will start to use story maps to record and retell stories. In phonics we will be continuing phase 2 phonics and starting to read three letter words and CVC words. By Christmas we will have moved onto phase 3 phonics. We will have opportunities to listen to various stories linked to our topic and explore vocabulary to develop our understanding of words.

In Maths we will be practicing counting beyond 10 and showing ways to represent numbers to 10 in different ways. We will also be learning about finding one more and one less for numbers 1 – 10. e.g. one more than 4 is 5, one less than 4 is 3. In our everyday environment we will be learning to explore length, weight and capacity.

As always, please ensure that your child has their book-bag and reading diary in school every day, as they will need these when they read to adults.

Our PE will be on a Monday so please ensure you child has a named PE kit in school.

If you would like to support your child at home please read with them every evening for 5 minutes. Remember to check our Walk and Talk board to find out what we’ve been up to each day and chat to your child about it on the way home.

Thank you for your support.
