This term we are going to be learning about different people who help us - what they wear, what equipment they use and how they help us. We have some visitors coming into school throughout the term to give us hands-on opportunities to learn about the jobs they do.
In writing we will be introducing the 'FANTASTIC's - special words that will make our writing more exciting. We will use these whilst remembering good sentence structure - capital letters, finger spaces, full stops and using sound talk - to write about the different people who help us.
In phonics we will be revisiting the phonemes that the children learnt in Year R, before moving onto Phase 4. We will have words of the week that we will practise reading and writing too.
During our maths lessons we will be focusing on place value - reading, writing, ordering and comparing numbers. We will use these in problem solving activities where the children will need to explain how they got to their answers.
The topic will be explored further in the afternoons, using music, art, and DT. In science we will be investigating different materials and the properties that describe them. Jigsaw Jack will be used to help the children settle in and start to understand their feelings and to have a happy mindset.
