We had a fantastic start in Term 1, getting to know one another, exploring our learning themes in child initiated time, starting our phonics learning and Numberblocks programme. We also really enjoyed our gym sessions in the hall, using the apparatus and finding imaginative ways to move around. We did our first class performance at the church for the Harvest festival and we made our first story map to help us learn the story ‘Rosie’s Walk’ by Pat Hutchins.
In Term 2, we will learn the story of the Gingerbread Man, and continue to learn our phonic sounds -moving onto digraphs and introducing tricky words. We will also continue to learn numbers through Numberblocks and using the numicon equipment. Before we know it, Christmas will be here and we will be learning all the songs and words for our Nativity performance. Please see the attached Topic Plans to find out more about all the amazing areas of our learning this term.
