In phonics we are going to recap all of the digraphs and trigraphs we have so far introduced.
In maths we will be learning about 3D shape - the names and properties of the shapes.
We have whole class and small group times each day where key objectives are introduced and practised. Children then have opportunity to consolidate and practise these skills (and much more) through adult supported play and exploration across the week.
Our book of the week continues to be A Place Called Home. We will focus on the children returning to the "snuggly bug place called home" and will introduce the concept of "special places". We will think about the earth as a special place through exploration of the Creation Story and through discussion of children's own special places. To help us, it would be useful if you could upload to Tapestry photos of places that are special to your children. For example, is there a place in your house / garden that your child likes to go to for "peace and quiet"? Is there a place at a relative's house that your child always likes to find and explore? If you are going out for the day and your child can choose where to go, is there a place that is always a favourite? As a family, do you visit churches, mosques or temples?
