This half term we will be reading many books about different pirates and mermaids. 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 moving onto phase 4 phonics and starting to read four letter words as well as multi-syllabic words – cvcc words. We will have opportunities to listen to various stories linked to our topic and discuss the different characters and our opinions of them. We will then be acting these out as Helicopter stories and hopefully this will see the start of some story writing.

In Maths we will carry on 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 explore time, weight and capacity in our everyday environment.

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 Wednesday so please ensure you child has a named PE kit in school. We will be in the hall.

If you would like to support your child at home please read with them every evening for 5 minutes, chat about the story of the week  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
