This week sees the start of our 'Frozen' topic.
During this term we will be looking at the Arctic, the landscape, the animals and people who live there and the transport they use.
In Maths we will be practising our counting skills to 20 of regular and irregular groups of objects. We will also continue to explore number bonds to 10 using real objects in different contexts. As well as number we will be exploring and manipulating 3-D shapes, being able to name, exploring their similarities and differences and looking at their properties. We will also build on our earlier pattern learning in Term 2, introducing more complex patterns.
Our Daily Phonics lessons will continue to introduce new sounds and practise word building using our word time boards. We will also begin to focus on writing labels and simple sentences with a capital letter and full stop.
Throughout the week your child will be heard reading at least once, please be aware your child’s reading group may change this term. It would be fantastic if you could hear your child read their reading book a little bit, every day. This helps your child to practise the sounds and words we are teaching them in school and also help them to grow in confidence and foster a love of reading. Please record in their Yellow Reading Record how they are reading at home, we love to hear about their achievements (and their struggles) so we can further support your child.
Forest School styled learning will continue to take place every Wednesday as usual. Please remember it is quite cold and your child will need extra layers as well as a warm, waterproof coat.
