The topic this half term is all about bears, starting with the 'We're going on a Bear Hunt', 'Whatever Next' and finally Goldilocks and the Three Bears. The children will look at the difference between non-fiction and fiction books to find out information about bears and space. To end this topic the children will invite their own bear into school for a picnic and will write an invitation, post it, make a list of food and prepare it.
Please see the parent communication letter for next term below.
In phonics the children are working hard in their groups, some of the children are working on their fluency as they blend the sounds (Fred in our head) to read and write words and sentences, whilst others will learn to blend orally (Fred talk), hear initial sounds and match sound to letter.

In mathematics we have looked closely at 0-10 and have begun to think about teen numbers.. We have worked out how to break numbers up and add them back together again, for example 2+2=4 but 3+1=4 also! Over the next few weeks the children will continue to look closely at the numbers to 20 and beyond, including 1 more and 1 less and number order as well as being encouraged to record their findings to show what they know, understand and can do with these numbers.
The children are continuing to develop their fine motor skills in their Mole time and handwriting sessions.
Our P.E. this half term is based on Sammy the squirrel gathering his acorns as well as Tennis lessons.
P.E kits - could you please ensure that all items of clothing are labelled. Thank you.
Looking forward to the term ahead - Miss Till and Mrs Jenkinson
