We have all had a great Christmas break and are now looking forward to our new term.
Our topic this term is ‘Once upon a Rhyme’ and we are looking forward to exploring different Fairy Tales.
Our stories for this topic include: The Gingerbread Man, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Billy Goats Gruff. We also plan to explore different Nursery Rhymes. During our special ‘Once Upon a Rhyme’ day the children will come to school dressed as a character from either a story or Nursery Rhyme and share this with the class.
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 ‘Once upon a Rhyme’ Day photographs soon.
