We will continue to have reading and writing opportunities linked to quality texts and use our RWI reading books to progress with our reading skills. The stories explored this term are: The Enormous Turnip, Supertato and Jack and the Beanstalk.
Maths - This term, we are developing our knowledge of number, recalling facts such as number bonds, spacial awareness and 2-D/3-D shapes.
Topic - Our focus is on Growth. This includes exploring how changes occur over time with regards to humans and animals but also growth in plants and the natural environment.
Personal,Social and Emotional Development - This term we continue to explore the difficulties of not seeing friends and the changes we face through this difficult time. We will prepare for when we are again allowed to reunite and we will need to settle back in to structure, routine and school boundaries.
Please remember we are here for you all should you need us.
