Hatching butterflies 

 

Using instruments to make the sounds of different types of transport 

 

The Way The Truth and The Life

 

Our Church Family

 

 

During our topic, 'Our Church Family', we will be focusing on the following main teachings:

 

To experience church as a special place where God’s people gather to pray.

 

To know that Sunday is a special day for the Church family who come together to celebrate.

 

To recognise and appreciate our friendship with Jesus through Baptism.

 

To experience praying with others as a celebration and to join in simple prayers and hymns.

 

During this half term, we look forward to visiting St Saviour's Church and to get to know our local Parish. 

 

 

 

Reading / Phonics 

 

Phonics is an extremely important aspect of learning in FS2.

 

We follow the Letters and Sounds Phonics programme which you are able to access online for additional information.

and blend them back together to make a word

Tricky Words

You can't sound these words out - you just need to know them.

 

 

 

Please find below, a PowerPoint used in class containing images with corresponding captions aimed at reading sounds taught during Phase 3. Please practise these with your children. 

 

As an added challenge, why not have a go at writing your own sentence and bring it into class to show your friends! 

Mathematics

 

Number

This halt term we will be focusing solving problems involving addition and subtraction as well as counting in 2's, 5's and 10's.  We will continue to practise recognising and recalling number bonds to 10.

Please use the resources below to support the children's learning.

Shape, Space and Measure

This half term we will be recapping language used to describe position, direction and distance as well as time. We will be moving on to telling the time to the hour and exploring activities we do in the morning, afternoon and evening. 

 

Farmer Pete - Number bonds to 10

Sing along to this video and learn your number bonds to 10!

Please remember!

 

Please remember to read every night with your child(ren).

 

Even if your child is not reading fluently yet, it is important that you dedicate 10 minutes each evening to sit down and read their school book with them.

 

This might include asking questions about the front cover, talking about the pictures, making predications about what might happen next and modelling how to follow the words whilst reading.
