This term, we will continue our mini-beast topic and our focus will be on bees, worms and snails. We will be helping to make a bug hotel in our outside area and planting flowers to attract bees and butterflies.
We will continue to explore growing through careful observations of our planted beans. We will learn the names of parts of a plant.
In maths we will be ordering and counting forwards and backwards from 0-20 and counting to 100! We will be counting in 2s, 5s and 10s, saying the number that is one more and one less than numbers up to 20 and linking this to addition and subtraction, adding and subtracting by counting on or back with numbers to 20, naming and ordering coins and making values of coins using other coins and finding pairs of numbers that total 5,6 and 10.
We will also be exploring lengths, weights and capacities.
We will be reading a range of fiction, non-fiction and poems about mini-beasts and growing including Superworm, The Snail and the Whale and Bumblebear. We will be writing in sentences about stories we have read and about mini-beast and growing facts. Our focus will be on composing sentences about a theme, using punctuation correctly and presenting our writing neatly on the line.
Phonics (reading and writing)
In phonics we will continue learning to read and write simple sentences including 2-syllable words and words with adjacent consonants.
We will continue learning to read and spell tricky words.
In PE our focus will be team games, object control and athletics, ready for sports day. We will also spend time exploring mini-beasts through dance.
In PSHE we will be 'Changing me' and will focus on the move into Year one.
