The Way The Truth and The Life

 

God's World

 

 

 

During our topic, 'God's World', we will be focusing on the following main teachings:

 

To know that God made the world and to think about all the things God has made for us.


To know that God has asked us to care for the world and think of ways in which we can help to do this.


To know that God loves and cares for each one of us and reflect on what this means for us.


To know that God made each one of us different and special and reflect on how we can thank God for everything.

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. 

 

 

Autumn 1 focus

 

Consolidate listening skills through activities focused on rhythm and rhyme and identifying different sounds in the environment.

 

We will begin to learn the Phase 2 Sounds. These initial sounds will create the foundations needed for reading.

 

We will begin to learn how to blend sounds together in order to make a word. 

 

 

Singing  - YouTube - Jolly Phonics 

We use lots of singing as a way to learn new sounds. Please use the link below to practise some of the new sounds we will be learning. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why not ask your child to teach you our songs!

Tricky Words

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

 

 

Mathematics

 

Number

This halt term we will be focusing on:

Learning number names and using the language of number.

Exploring number through rhymes such as 5 little ducks, 10 green bottles and 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

Using number names in play.

Begin to match numerals and quantities and counting objects up to 10.

Shape, Space and Measure

This half term we will be playing with shapes in the construction area, making arrangements, such as making skeleton pictures using white straws and cotton buds.

Using positional language in PE and Performing Arts. 

 

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.
