The children will be learning lots of new stories and retelling familiar tales. We will be looking at rhymes and repeating language patterns. The children will learn to recognise some sounds in words and they will be using different equipment to make marks and say what they mean.
Phonics – The children will be focusing on hearing sounds and learning how to differentiate sounds initially and also rhyming words. We will also be learning how to match letters to their sounds.
The children will be learning to count, order and recognise numbers to 20. There will be opportunities to apply their number skills within the classroom and the outdoor learning environment. We will be looking at recognising repeated patterns and naming some simple 2D shapes. We will be encouraging the children to use mathematical language to describe position, size and quantity.
Understanding the World
The children will have the opportunity to share with others experiences they have had and their favourite things when they each have a turn to take home the Culture Box.. The children will be learning to use a simple programs on the computer.
Lots of opportunities will be available for the children to be creative using a variety of different materials. We will be looking at drawing story characters and settings. We will have lots of fun making music with percussion instruments and singing our favourite and new songs.
We are really looking forward to working with you and your children.
