Whole class reading – This half term it is the children’s choice. We will be visiting the library so they can choose interesting books for us to share during story time.


Writing - We will be reading a text by Alexis Deacon called Beegu.  We are working on using clear handwriting, finger spaces between words, starting sentences with a capital letter and ending with a full stop. We will also work on spelling words we don’t know using Fred talk for spelling.


Maths – We are learning about addition using part and whole numbers, number bonds to ten, number sentences and adding more, subtraction by finding part of a number and how many are left, subtraction using a number line and also adding and subtracting 1 or 2 from different numbers.


Science – We are learning about humans which includes the different body parts and the five senses. We will explore these using different practical activities. We will also continue to learn about the weather, focusing on the change from Autumn to Winter.


PSHE - Developing our understanding of safe relationships, what it is to belong to a community and keeping safe in different environments.


Art – Sculpture using different mediums such as playdough, clay, paper and foil. To help us to understand and to give us inspiration, we are going to look at the work of Keith Haring.


Design Technology – In textiles, we will be making planning, making and evaluating puppets. We will join to pieces of fabric together using sewing as a technique, and embellishing the puppets to add details and interest.
