Our Curriculum This Term

This term we will be ensuring that the children feel safe, secure and happy at school.  We will be encouraging them to form new friendships and explore their new classroom.

We will be sharing traditional tales 'The Three Little Pigs',  'Goldilocks and the Three Bears' and 'The Gigantic Turnip'.  Through these stories we will be exploring different types of materials, construct our own houses using various resources, role play, mix colours, learn about healthy eating, music and compare environments.  We will explore the use of different technology and create maps when we read 'Room on the Broom'.  

Through daily Phonics we will identify rhyming words, orally blend and segment words and begin to identify intial sounds.  We will be practicing correct letter formation using the Read Write Inc letter formation rhymes.  We will be building the strength in our fingers to write through various fine motor activites.

We are using Maths Mastery to teach maths.  Each week we will concentrate on one number in which all mathematical concepts are explored.  This ensures deep understanding of number and promotes the ability to notice patterns and make connections.
