Welcome to our website page!
Our topic this half term is ‘Toys and games’ and we are all looking forward to exploring how different toys work and what different materials they are made out of.
During this topic we are going to be reading different stories about toys. These include; Dogger, written by Shirley Hughes, This is the bear stories, written by Sarah Hayes and The Toy Hospital, by Elaine Mills.
In our literacy time we will be describing our favourite toys and will also be talking about toys that we would like to have for Christmas. The children will have a go at writing a toys list for Father Christmas and his Elves to read in December.
In our phonics work this half term we will continue to practise saying the different letters and sounds that we have been learning, and will begin to say some sounds together, blending them to read new words, as well as practising to spell them.
In our mathematics work, we will be practising counting and recognising numbers to 20 through a variety of number games. We will also be exploring positional language, finding out about money and the value of different coins, as well as creating a survey all about favourite toys.
We hope to share some photographs of our learning with you soon.
