SPRING TERM 1
Our topic this half term is People who help us
What we are learning in school
The children will be consolidating their phase 3 sounds and applying these to blending and segmenting CVCC and CCVC words e.g. fish, shed. We will be focussing on Phase 2 and Phase 3 tricky words. We will continue to encourage the children to record the sounds they can hear in words to write labels and simple captions. We will be learning about sentence structure (e.g. starting with a capital letter, leaving a space between words).
In Maths will be increasing our confidence in subitising within 5 (the skill of looking at a quantity and immediately identifying it without counting). We will continue to develop verbal counting to 20 and improve the accuracy of our counting skills, using a range of strategies.
We will also investigate mass (weight) using balancing scales and capacity (the space inside) through filling, emptying, covering, removing, building, making things fit and taking them apart.
We will be exploring different occupations and the ways in which people help us within the community. We will discuss the roles and skills of different professionals such as doctors, nurses, vets and firefighters.
How can you help?
Home Learning will be sent home every Thursday (w.c. 10th Jan). These need to be returned to school by the following Wednesday. Your child will have a Literacy and a Maths books - these will be alternated every other week. Please ensure that your child only uses this book for their home learning and treats it with respect. Thank you.
Thank you for your support.
