Autumn term learning:
Our theme this half term is Being Me In My World
We will spend our time reading a range of stories and information texts on family, food and festivals. We will write speech bubbles, lists, and write our own story maps.
In Maths we will be looking at recognising and reading numbers beyond 5. They children will explore numbers in the environment and count/ match numerals to amounts.
We will be looking at a variety of different festivals and taste different foods from around the world. The children will have an opportunity to follow recipes and make some delicious food!
We will be introducing a daily sounds to the children form our Read Write Inc program. We are streamed into smaller groups so we can work at our own pace. Blending and segmenting skills will be practised and you can also do this at home!
Reading at home
Once the children are more settled, we will give your child a reading book and reading record. The requirement is that you read with your child 5 times a week. Your child will also read 1:1 with an adult once a week. This is when their reading book will be changed should it need to be. Please sign and write a comment in the reading record, so we are aware you have read with your child and if any additional support is needed.
We will send home a homework sheet once a half term with 10 homework tasks for you to choose from. The requirement is that you choose 5 activities to complete across the half term and hand them in as and when completed. These activities will be varied from cooking to writing tasks and are perfect opportunities for your child to practise everything they have learnt! We will be monitoring this.
