This term our topic is called ‘On Safari.'

During this topic the children will be finding where Africa is on the world map and comparing Africa to the UK. Children will have a chance to find out about different African animals. 

The children will read stories for this topic that include; Rumble in the Jungle, Handa's Surprise and We're going on a lion hunt. We also plan to use and explore non-fiction books about African animals and what they look like. 

Handa's Surprise Big Book (Read and Share) - Black Baby Books - Black  Children's Book Characters                                      Rumble in the Jungle : Andreae, Giles, Wojtowycz, David: Books                                    We're Going on a Lion Hunt : Axtell, David: Books      

We will be continuing our phonics programme on phase 4 this half-term and will be revisiting and consolidating children’s ability to blend and segment phonemes to develop their reading and writing skills.  We will continue to add the next set of words to your child’s word pot, for them to practise quick sight recognition and recall with you at home.  

In Maths, we will be continuing to learn numbers to 10 and begin to use what we know about 1 more and 1 less to help solve maths problems. We will also be learning about odd and even numbers, as well as using mathematical language to describe shapes.


We look forward to sharing some new photographs with you soon.                                                     

If you have any concerns or worries please do not hesitate to come and speak to myself or Mrs Hill.

Take care,

Mr Roberts and Mrs Hill
