Termly Overview

Under the Sea

 

In term 6 we will be reading books all about the ocean. Our key books will be 'Billy's Bucket' and 'The Snail and the Whale.' We will be consolidating our knowledge of early reading skills such as, pointing to the words as we read and knowing that we read from left to right. We will be using our phonics skills to label pictures of the different sea creatures in our stories. You can support you child at home by regularly sharing stories together. Talk to your child about the story and ask them questions to check their comprehension. You could ask them about their favourite part of the story. 

 

In maths, we will be playing games to practise number recognition of numbers 1-10. We will continue to practise our careful counting skills by pointing to each object as we say the numbers and will also be challenging ourselves to count objects beyond 10. You can support your child at home by looking at numbers in the environment such as on buses, signs and front doors.

Vegetables!

 

In term 5 we have been learning all about vegetables. In literacy, we have been reading The Enormous Turnip and Supertato! We learnt to retell the Enormous Turnip and were inspired to plant our own carrot seeds. The children have been watering them every day and learning about what plants need in order to grow. Later in the term we had a visit from Supertato! We used our phonics skills to help Supertato by finding the initial sound for each picture clue. In the last week we have been using our reading skills to look at cook books and recipes and have made our own vegetable stew. It was delicious!

 

In maths, the children have been problem solving. We read a fantastic book called 'How Many Legs?' We then challenged ourselves to count the legs on our toy animals. We compared the number of legs, finding out which animal had the most, and even counted up how many legs two animals had altogether. Later in the term we were practising our positional language by telling Supertato where he should look for the Evil Pea!

 

In phonics, we are building up our knowledge of alphabet sounds. This term the children have learnt: /b/, /f/, and /l/. We have learnt how to write the sounds and are practising sorting objects by their initial sound. For example, flower begins with /f/ and box begins with /b/. We play games such as I Spy to help practise this in a fun way.

Bears

In term 4, our topic is Bears. In literacy, we will be reading Goldilocks and the Three Bears and We're Going on a Bear Hunt. We will learn to tell the stories using pictures and actions and will then create our own bear stories.

 

In maths, we will be looking at the similarities and differences of shapes and learning new vocabulary for describing shapes. We will then be consolidating our counting skills as we explore number problems and representing numbers.

SPACE

 

In term 3 we will be learning about space! In literacy we will be reading the books 'Whatever Next' and 'Beegu', as well as looking at some non-fiction books.

 

In maths, we will be talking about the shapes of everyday language and using language that compares and describes shapes. We will then be practicing our careful counting and exploring how we can represent number using our fingers, marks or pictures.
