This half term we will be reading many books by Julia Donaldson. We will be focusing on stories that rhyme and how we can sequence a story. We will look at what happens first, next, and last. In phonics we will be carrying on phase 2 phonics and starting to read three letter words- cvc words. We will have opportunities to listen to various stories linked to our topic and discuss the different characters and our opinions of them.

In Maths we are practicing counting to 20 and showing ways to represent numbers. We will be focusing on our teen numbers a lot! We are also learning to create repeating patterns.

We will also start to learn about the Nativity and will be practising many songs and the Christmas story, ready to show you in December.

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.

If you would like to support your child at home please read with them every evening for 5 minutes, chat about bugs/animals that live in the world on the way home and play a simple game with them. These are all important characteristics of learning and will develop their skills for school.

Thank you for your continued support.

Mrs Owen
