Welcome to our class page!
Welcome back everyone. We hope you have had a lovely Christmas and New Year.
This term our topic is 'Life in the Freezer'. We will be looking at all things cold! We have started off with a visit from a penguin which the children have named Snowflake. We can't wait to get started with this topic as we know the children will love all the scientific activities coming up!
In phonics we are going to recap our sounds. The children are going to begin lots of writing practice and spellings of 3 letter words and key words. Beginning to look at their Key words in their green books will help with this.
We have moved on to learn our 'special friend' sounds. Have a look under phonics to see what these are. If your unsure of them then please ask.
In maths we are moving onto numbers to 20, adding and subtracting. We will be exploring the patterns of larger numbers not just the symbols. For example the teen numbers all have a 10 in them and a repeating pattern, 1,2,3,4,5 etc. We feel it is important for the children to understand the place value and construction of the numbers for when they move onto more complicated numeracy throughout the school.
Please feel free to speak to myself and Mrs Parsons if there are any issues, worries or concerns. At the end of the day we usually speak through with parents if there has been any problems so they are fully informed.
Miss Millard and Mrs Parsons
