Term 5 - The Secret Garden

Term 5


During we will be looking to the outside space for our learning and 'The Secret Garden'. We will be finding out about the plants and animals around our school, looking at their features and making observations. We will be learning about gardens, comparing them, magical creatures such as fairies and have the opportunity to plant seeds and watch them grow. We will also be looking at the life cycle of some familiar animals.


In Phonics and Literacy we will continue to practise all the sounds and High Frequency words learnt so far, leading on to reading longer words. We will also be using fiction and non-fiction texts to support and practise our writing, such as What the Ladybird Heard by Julia Donaldson, Jasper's Beanstalk by Mick Inkpen, The Very Hungry Caterpillar by the late Eric Carle and Tadpole’s Promise by Jeanne Willis.


During our Maths lessons we will continue to work with numbers to at least 10, continue to practise the number bonds for each number to 10 (e.g.  3+2=5, 4+1=5, 2+3=5, 1+4=5, 0+5=5, 5+0=5), begin to include some subtraction facts (e,g, 6-1=5, 10-5=5).
