Learnt to combine new shapes to make new structures. Learnt new songs.  Combined different materials to create a new effect. Used clay to create solid objects like diva lamps.  We practised how to enter into conversations about stories, learning new vocabulary.   To enjoy looking at different pieces of artwork focusing on Rangoli patterns.  To write some letters by producing a class book of fact cards.  To recognise single graphemes and know the phonemes they make.



Well done to everyone who gained Class Dojo points during the last half term.

In English we shall be learning about how to:

Read decodable books with confidence, fluency and understanding and enjoyment.

Have a go at Writing CVC words independently and writing some recognisable letters using the correct orientation.


In Knowledge and Understanding of the World we shall be learning about other countries.  We will ask the children to think about life in other countries. Would they have the same people helping in Antarctica? Who would be helpful in very cold places? What about in very hot countries? How do the emergency services differ throughout the world?


In topic sessions we will learning:

Talk about all the little ways that we can be kind and helpful. Talk about the different types of people who can help us with different problems.  Ask the children to think about how the people experiencing problems might be feeling and how they might resolve the situation.  Talk to children about the importance of eating healthily and brushing their teeth.
