What are we learning this half-term?
Our topic this half term is Animals (Great and Small).
Literacy: In Literacy this half term our stories will be based around giant land, water and prehistoric animals. We will be writing a fact file, labelling and describing large African Safari animals. We will explore rhyme by listening to a range of Topic related poems. In Phonics we will be blending and segmenting longer and more complex words.
Maths: In maths we will continue to work on addition and subtraction, with a focus on counting on and back in our heads to find the answers. We will also explore problem solving involving calculation. We will name and learn the properties of 3D shapes. Children will also practise counting in groups of 2, 5 and 10.
Topic: In Topic sessions we will search the internet and use non-fiction books to learn new facts about land, water and prehistoric animals. The children will learn the lyrics to an animal song. We will explore different animal habitats. During PSHE children will begin circle time sessions to prepare them for their transition to Year 1.
