Spring is on it's way...
Our topic is
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
We adored our first term and loved Christmas at Fairfield, now we are ready for more experiences, opportunities and lots of fun in Spring! We are going to learn about our feelings and think about what we need to add to a recipe when making a friend. Our Marvellous Me box will be sent home for children to fill with their special items from home. We are looking forward to developing further friendships!
Communication and Language
We are working closely on talking with increasing coherence this term. We will be talking, talking, talking! Question words are going to be important as we understand the key words WHY, WHO, HOW and WHERE.
We are busy continuing to grow our budding phonic abilities this term whilst working on Phase 3 from Letters and Sounds. We are going to be reading lots of new books linked to our topic (including some non-fiction), "catching a character", writing labels and captions and writing simple sentences. We will of course be embracing writing for purpose using the many areas of our indoor and outdoor classroom. We also have a brand new Superhero writing area!
This term we are getting to grips with the part/whole model and the ten frame! We are invetigating and finding out number bonds for 5 and 10, looking at addition and subtraction to 10, geometry and some space and shape work! We will be developing our understanding of place value!
