A big welcome back to Robin Class and a very Happy New Year to you all!
Our focus for this term will be People and Communities. We will think about how we can stay safe and healthy, looking at people who help us, making safe and healthy choices and thinking about where our food comes from.
Our key text for the first half of the term will be ‘The Enormous Turnip’, starting off with a special performance of the story in our garden area at the vegetable patch! We will learn the story to be able to retell it off by heart using actions, story maps and role play, before then having a go at writing our own stories about growing enormous vegetables! After half term, we will move on to ‘The Little Red Hen.’
We will continue our daily phonics teaching, where we will revisit the sounds we already know and move on to looking at digraphs (2 letters that together make 1 sound). We will continue to focus on segmenting on blending skills which will enable us to begin to read simple books.
Our maths focus for this term will be on addition and subtraction to 10 and 20.
Our RE learning will cover the topics of Epiphany, Revelations, Lent and Easter.
Across the Foundation Stage Unit, we will continue to foster the children’s independence and excellent attitude towards learning, working in partnership with parents.
