We hope you had a lovely half term break. We are looking forward to a busy half term with lots of exciting learning activities to complete with the children. Could we say a big 'thank you' for your support over the last half term. It was lovely to see so many of you at our 'Stay and Play' event and we could tell lots of time went into making the wonderful models that were completed as part of the Chinese New Year homework.
Our topic for this half term is 'Traditional Tales'. We will be sharing lots of traditional stories and focusing on 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff' and 'Red Riding Hood'. Using both stories we will look at repetitive language, characters and story settings. We will continue learning our phase 2/3 sounds as appropriate and use these to write simple sentences.
In Maths we will be continuing to develop our knowledge of numbers to 10 including comparing numbers, looking at addition and subtraction within 10 using frames and the 'part-part whole model'. We will learn about 2D and 3D shapes.
'Little Bikers' starts this half term where the children have a one hour session each week learning the skills needed to ride a bike. All equipment including helmets are provided. This also helps develop upper body strength which will help with gross and fine motor skills for writing.
We will also look at how we celebrate Shrove Tuesday, World Book Day, Mothering Sunday and Easter.
As always if you have any queries, worries or questions please do not hesitate to speak to us. After school, once we have sent he children out, is the best.
