During this term we continue to consolidate children's phonics, looking at phase 1,2,and 3. Children begin to apply this in their writing and are encouraged to write for different purposes. We are looking at the book Handas surprise, and as a result our understanding of the world topic focusses on Africa and African animals. We will look at similarities and differences in our lifestyles.
During this term children will also experiment with different food types and discus likes and dislikes.
We will continue to use Numicon to support our maths learning, recognition of numbers 0-20 and measuring size, height and length and capacity further to this 2d and 3d shapes. After February half term we will be looking at time, length, weight, capacity, 2d shapes and 3d shapes.
