Summer, Term 1 - 2022
This half term, our topic is ‘Around the World’.
We will focus on different places from around the world so that we can investigate clothes, foods, languages, weather types and more.
This topic is great for introducing children to maps and globes, to help them realise that the world has lots of different places to live. Some with similarities and others with differences.
In Literacy, the children will continue to take part in their daily phonics, re-capping phase 3 sounds and tricky words. Hopefully, we will get to introduce some phase 4 phonics alongside. We will have a big focus on independent writing. Encouraging the children to use their phonics knowledge to choose the sounds they need whilst remembering capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. Writing opportunities are available within the provision both indoors & outdoors.
In Maths, the children will be focusing on various topics. Counting to 20, Adding, subtracting, fractions, repeating patterns, shapes and big focus on number bonds, first to 5 and then 10.
PE this term is on a Tuesday and Friday afternoon. Children will continue come to school in their PE kit on those days.
In RE we will be focusing on 'Special Places'.
