This half term our topic is called: Big Wide World. We will be teaching the children about their community and how communities differ around the world. We will be going for a walk along Narbeth Drive looking at our local environment and where we go to school. We will be reading Puffin Peter as our focus text. We will be exploring the kindness concepts in this book and create pieces of writing about Peter’s journey as well as our own journeys. We will be thinking about where we want to go and how we will get there. We will be creating a poster about Peter and Paul (the characters in the book) and describing who they are to help find them.
We are exploring numbers 6-10. We will be finding them, counting them carefully, writing our number and looking at different ways to make them. This could be 3 and 3 is 6, 4 and 2 is 6, 5 and 1 is 6 etc.
We will be going for a walk this week around Narbeth to look at the journey we take to school and our local environment. We will be discussing the types of houses we can see and drawing our own and talking about where we live.
We are beginning phase 3 and learning lots of new sounds. Please keep an eye out on tapestry for the weekly learning and the focus sounds.
