We're Going on a Dragon Hunt!
Have you ever seen a real castle? Would you like to dress up as a knight or a princess?Have you heard of Saint George and how he played a dragon? Would you like to go on a dragon hunt?
In this topic you will learn all about what it is like inside a real castle and how it would feel if you were part of a very special story... look out for the dragon!
In phonics, we will continue to practise reading words containing the set 1 speed sounds, in particular the digraphs:
sh, th, ch, qu, ng, nk
This term we will be applying our phonics skills to read more books along with using lots of book talk to discuss the stories we have read or listened to
. We will also be learning to read some Set 2 'special friends' sounds, which are:
ay, ee, igh, ow, oo, oo, ar, or air, ir, ou, oy

In Maths, we will be learning to count beyond ten along with recalling number bonds 0 to 10. We will be representing numbers to 10 by linking the symbol (numeral) with its cardinal. The children will also be learning to understand and use 'one more' and 'one less than' when counting with numbers. They will compare length, weight and capacity as well as completing 2D shape investigations. Please click here to view White Rose planning and learning resources that we use to support our teaching.
