St Anne's Infants' School


Reach for the Stars

Term 4

Welcome to Term 4 - we can't believe we are more than half way through the school year! The children are learning so much and wowing us everyday with what they can do. 



In Term 4 our enquiry question is 'How have I changed?' We will be focussing on the key words 'past' and 'present' to show that things change over time. We will be starting our enquiry by comparing photos of us as babies with photos of us now. We will make timelines of what has happened in our lives, as well as what came before we were born. We will finish by thinking about what could happen in the future and what we want to be when we grow up. 



In literacy, we will be reading the books 'Harry and His Bucketful of Dinosaurs', 'The Dinosaur that Pooped the Past', 'Peepo' and 'Aunt Flossie's Hats'. The children will be continuing to write sentences by learning how to plan their sentence and practise saying it before writing it down. Children will also begin to understand the importance of full stops and where to place them. 

In phonics, we will be teaching the children the following Read Write Inc sounds:

Set 2 : ay, ee, igh, ow, oo/oo, or, ar, ou and oy.

Set 3: ea, oi, a-e, e-e, i-e, o-e, u-e, aw, are, ur, er, ow, ai, oa, ew, ire, ear, ure.

The children will practise applying these sounds in their reading and writing.



As mathematicians, we will be learning about number bonds to ten and practise how to quickly work them out. We will also be learning about subtraction and what happens to quantities when some parts are taken away.



This term the children will be continuing their work on coordination, teamwork and ways to move. We will also be starting Gymnastics where the children will learn different floor shapes, ways to balance and linking routines.



We will be continuing our work using the Jigsaw scheme. Children will take part in weekly circle times and role plays, learning how to be active listeners and offer their ideas.
