In phonics, we will begin by practicing our oral blending and segmenting skills. We will then begin learning our set 1 sounds, focusing on recognising and writing these sounds, and identifying words that start with these sounds.
In Literacy, we will begin by talking about our own families and houses, and discussing the similarities and differences between ourselves and our new friends. We will then be using a Talk 4 Writing approach to learn the story of The Three Little Pigs. We will learn to retell the story off my heart, and identify key features such as characters and settings. We will then be exploring alternative versions of the story, such as The Three Little Wolves.
In Maths, we will be practicing our counting skills, and securing our numeral recognition to 10. We will also be exploring sorting and classifying, and identifying which groups have more/less. For example, we will be sorting our new friends by hair colour, gender and eye colour and then identifying which group has the most.
