Message from the teachers:


Welcome to a new academic year ! We are eager and excited to begin our first topic "The Gruffalo" with the children.

Please remember to view our class dojo page for regular updates on our class.

This term's learning:



To start off the year we will begin with our first unit "Labels, lists, signs and posters". This unit focuses on the children's ability to compose sentences in relation to a real event. The labels, lists, signs and posters that the children create will support the Gruffalo tea party event held in school. During this unit the children will be able to demonstrate their handwriting skills, ensuring they are writing letters of the appropriate size and correct formation.


During our second unit "stories in familiar settings", we will begin to delve into the story of "The Gruffalo". This text will be used to develop the children's comprehension skills, for example, prediction and inference. This text will also be used for our end of unit writing piece. The children will create their own forest woodland story based on the features identified within "The Gruffalo".




Our first unit of math is focused on number and place value. The children will be learning how to count to 100 (forwards and backwards) as well as writing numbers to 100 in numerals and numbers up to 20 in words. The children will begin to move into addition and subtraction (number bonds to 20). Our class will also focus on the correct formation of numerals and the use of equipment to support answers to mathematical problems.
