Welcome to Spring 2 in Foundation Robins. 

This half term our topic is called Under the sea and we will be focusing all of our activities investigating different colours and shapes you might find in the ocean.

Our stories for this topic include; ‘The Singing Mermaid’ by Julia Donaldson, ‘The Blue Balloon’ by Mick Inkpen and ‘Brown Bear Brown Bear, What do you see?’ by Bill Martin Jr.  We also plan to use and explore non-fiction books about colours, shapes and sea creatures in our world around us.

We will be continuing our phonics programme on phase 3 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 also 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 20 and begin to use what we know about 1 more and 1 less to help solve maths problems. We will also be focusing lots of activities on finding out about different shapes and patterns.

During topic time children will be able to explore different colours and shapes in our environment and investigate what happens when colours mix.

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