Welcome to Spring 1 in Foundation Robins! Our topic this half-term is ‘Once Upon a Rhyme’. We will be focusing our activities each week around a popular story including Little Red Riding Hood, Goldilocks & the Three Bear, The Three Billy Goats Gruff and the Gingerbread Man.
We will also be exploring lots of different Nursery Rhymes through our counting and number work. We are looking forward to our special dressing up day on the Thursday 12th February. All children and adults are invited to come to school dressed as a favourite story character or nursery rhyme character.
This term we will also be continuing our phonics programme by revisiting and consolidating children’s ability to blend and segment phonemes to develop their reading and writing skills. We will be focusing on how we write letters and will follow the sequence in your child’s Captain Phoneme book.
In number time we will be practicing counting and recognising numbers to 20. During this time we will play games like ‘splat the number’, guessing games like ‘what’s the hidden number’ and introduce the Numicon shapes.
We are looking forward to sharing some of our photographs soon including our dressing up day!
