We will be learning ‘about ourselves and open our topic with the question;
“What is special about me”
We will learn about our bodies and what we can do with them. We will also learn about the world around us noticing changes in the seasons. We will go on an autumn walk where parents will be invited. Using our senses we will observe changes from summer to autumn and collect autumn treasures to explore further. We will also be involved in the whole school humanities week “Down our way” where we will make lots of cross curricular links but particularly look at features of houses that we live in.
In maths, we will be counting numbers up to 20 and using numbers in our play. Through singing number rhymes we will count, add and subtract.
In Literacy, this half term we will be reading lots of books related to our topic of ourselves, autumn and other books that interest us. We will continue with our reading challenge where we really challenge ourselves to read and share as many books as possible. Parents please help us with. Sharing and reading books will help us become better readers and writers. We will have a focus on mark making, and those able to form letters we will encourage them to write their names in daily. We will keep a record of this so we can show you how much they have progressed. Phonics will cascade through all areas of our learning including singing, music and reading.
