Wishing you all a very Happy New Year and a big warm welcome to Term 3!
We are delighted with the children’s continuing progress within the prime and specific areas of learning. Knowing how physical development impacts on all areas of our children’s learning we continue to provide challenges for both gross and fine motor control. We may even try our hand at a spot of archery!
Within literacy we continue to learn set 1 sounds, blend and use this growing phonic knowledge to help read and write simple regular words. Fred will also start to introduce us to the RWI Set 2 sounds later in the term and we will begin to build a bank of some naughty ‘red’ (sight) words too. If you could provide lots of fine motor control activities at home (playdough, lego, jobs where we have to use fingers ie peeling an orange) to support the children’s muscle development this will really aid our growing ability to write. Listening to stories and comprehension, as always, features highly on our agenda. We are now becoming familiar with numbers to 20 - estimating, ordinal numbers and simple addition will form part of our maths focus. Taking part in the RSPB Big Garden Bird Watch at the end of January will introduce us to various ways of recording data such as tally charts and graphs. 2d and 3d shapes will help us to build models and create patterns.
We will be taking part in our whole school RE Festival Day towards the end of term which sounds very exciting.
Access to outdoor learning is always a priority therefore children need warm coats, hats, gloves and wellies please. No scarves thank you.
Responsibility is our learning behaviour focus for the term; we will be looking after ourselves, our friends, our pets, our environment and resources.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
