Communication, Language and Literacy


This term our topic is Traditional Tales, starting with Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We will be creating the Three Bear’s cottage in our role play area to support our learning.

We are continuing with Phase 3 in our daily phonic sessions of Letters and Sounds. We have new ‘tricky words’ to learn and more digraphs and trigraphs to add to our segmenting and blending skills when reading and spelling. (Remember to record daily reading in the Reading diary and to check the phoneme wallet for the new sounds).

This term we will be continuing to develop our number recognition and number order. We are counting carefully demonstrating one to one correspondence, finding one more/one less than, combining groups to find the total and recording our learning. In shape, space and Measure we are learning not only to name 2D and 3D shapes but to describe their properties using mathematical language. We will also explore length, weight, capacity, time and positional language.



Religious Education

In RE we are exploring the topic ‘Getting to know Jesus’. We will learn about Jesus’ love for all and how we can show our love for Jesus. We will hear, discuss and respond to Jesus in the Temple, Jesus heals the sick man at the pool and the wedding at Cana.
