Our Theme :

 WONDERFUL ME

My Wonderful Body

Your child will learn about their body parts inside and out. The function of different body parts, healthy eating and the five senses. We will learn why it is important to look after our body.

In Literacy

We will be looking at vocabulary very based on understanding the world. We will be looking at books about the body and what makes them marvellous.We will learn to apply our phonics knowledge to reading and writing and will look at different books that give information or stories.  We will also enjoy writing for purpose, including writing our forename and surname and creating labels and caption for our child-initiated work. They will use all the knowledge from books to write labels, captions and attempt simple sentences. We will continue to have daily Read Write Inc. lessons. 

In Maths

  We will continue embedding numbers from 1 to 5 but will be adding to this by learning 6-10, we will learn what the number is, counting clearly using 1:1 correspondence to 10, counting beyond ten, different representation of a number, more and less of numbers to 10 and adding and subtracting with numbers to 10. This will help develop mastery in maths. We will look at length and height as an overall theme. 

 

PSED

 We will be continuing to develop the skills with working with others and identify rhymes that can represent a moral. We will also continue to work as a group and solve their own problem. We will continue to ask appropriate questions of others. We will be continuing to develop the skills with working with others and identify rhymes that can represent a moral. We will also continue to work as a group while embedding routines of the class and school. We will develop our self-confidence as we talk about ourselves.

 

Communication and Language

We will be looking at how children join in with repeated phrases/refrains in a story or rhyme. We will also see how children respond to instructions in two parts while understanding the use of preposition. We will also learn to understand ‘how’ and ‘why’ questions while increasing our vocabulary.

Physical Development

As we are learning about how wonderful we are, we will explore what happens to our bodies when we exercise; what foods are good and bad for our bodies; and how to generally keep our bodies healthy and safe. Children will continue to develop their use of one-handed tools such as scissors, paintbrushes and how to move in a variety of ways. We will understand the importance of eating healthy, having good hygiene and rest.

PE with the PE specialist teacher will take place on:

Cooke class -Wednesday and Friday

Waddell class - Wednesday and Friday

Your child should have a full PE Kit (Harris round-neck yellow t-shirt, navy shorts or jogging bottoms and black plimsolls in a Harris P.E kit bag). All items should be labelled with your child’s name. Please ensure your child is not wearing jewellery on these days such as, hoop earrings. Children will be expected to undress and change themselves. To support children with this, you should encourage them to practise fastening and unfastening buttons and tying shoelaces at home.

Understanding the World

We will be learning what makes us unique. We will be finding out and talking about things that make us unique; our similarities and differences. We will be learning about where food comes from how we can help look after the environment. We are learning about our body and how to take care of it through nutrition, exercise and safety.

Expressive Arts and Design

We will explore the different sounds of instruments and imitate movement in response to music and move rhythmically. They will build and construct to create representation of people, events and objects through role play and other ranges of media.

Music with the Music specialist teacher will take place on: Friday’s

Art and Drama with the specialist teacher will take place on: Thursday’s

 

Read Write Inc (phonics)

Children will continue to follow the Read Write Inc programme in phonics, learning new sounds and focusing on blending sounds for reading and segmenting for writing. We have split into variety of groups to support and extend children at this stage. Some children will focus more on blending words and others will focus on speed reading new words.

We will continue to review old sounds and learn new special friend sounds such as sh and th.

How can you help us?

Any learning you are able to do at home with your children makes a big difference to their school life. 

  • Reading Challenge: Read the reading challenge book daily. Asking questions after you have read it with your child. Reading other books
  • Key words: Learning to read and spell 5 key words daily. Use the words in sentences and context so the child understand the word. This is especially important for words that sometimes sound the same as other words.
  • Math
  • Understanding the World: Talking about the theme of Wonderful Me and the body. Take the to the park and explore how their bodies move. Talk about athletes and how they may take care of their body.
  • Expressive Art and Design: Create pictures about the body. Ask your child what songs they have learnt and teach them songs that you remember learnt.
  • Wow Cards: Don’t forget to complete a wow card with all the exciting things your child say and do at home to share and add to the learning journals.

Now that the weather is getting colder please make sure your child wears their school coat each day– our outdoor learning continues all year round so they will be learning both inside and outside during the winter months. 

Class routines and home learning

  • Home learning is compulsory and must be completed each week. Your child is given their homework on a Monday and it must be brought back completed by the following Monday.

     

    As the children are becoming more confident in their writing, please encourage your child to start writing their ideas down sounding out words which they want to write. It would then be helpful for you to annotate underneath their writing what they have written and bring it in.

  • As always, we expect all children to read every day at home. Please ensure your child brings in their rucksack, with their homework folder every day, along with their reading record and book, ready for when the class teacher needs to change your child’s book. It is important that you remember to write in these reading records each time your child reads as this helps us to support your child’s reading and allows us to suggest ways you can support your child further. 

    Timetable:

    Literacy and Mathematics takes place daily with opportunities for child-initiated learning.
