Friday 10th September
Next week we will explore more poems in our first ‘Power of Reading’ book, ‘Out and About’ by Shirley Hughes. We will continue to explore the language and how the poems make us feel. We will explore the outdoor elements of mud, water and sand and make connections with the poems by comparing them with our own experiences.
Next week we will continue counting up to 20 and back from 20 using objects. We will be counting forwards and back on number lines and we will be writing numbers as words.
We are learning about our five senses. Next week we will start to explore our sense of sight.
We continue our topic of Families and will learn about God’s love in the Bible, exploring psalms and stories that demonstrate how much God loves and cares about us.
Monday 6th September
This week we will continue to explore poems in our first ‘Power of Reading’ book, ‘Out and About’ by Shirley Hughes. We will explore the language and how the poems make us feel. This will link with our Science exploration of seasonal changes and enjoyment of listening to Vivaldi’s ‘Four Seasons’. The children will explore their outdoor Investigation Station, where they will use all of their 5 senses.
This week we will be counting up to 20 and back from 20 using objects, number lines and songs.
We begin our topic of Families and start from the point of the children’s own families. They will be creating their own ‘Thank you’ prayer for their family.
We are beginning the term by reading ‘The Colour Monster’ by Anna Llenas. We will think about how the Colour Monster uses colours to express his feelings and create our own colour monsters.
