Here are some things we will be learning:
Maths: Numbers to 10 and how they are made. Adding more and taking away. Shapes and manipulating shapes.
RE: Why is the word God important to Christians?
Phonics: recapping phase 3 and starting phase 4 phonics
Knowledge and understanding of the world: Watching Caterpillars turn into butterflies. Life cycles. What do seeds need to grow? The seasons.

Autumn term 2!
Welcome back JCR! The children have quickly settled back into school and are enjoying our new topic ‘traditional tales’. Last week we looked at the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears and acted out the story using masks. The children loved this and are still re-enacting the story... This week The Little Red Hen...
In maths we are working on developing a deep understanding of the numbers 1,2,3 and looking at shapes.
in phonics we will be continuing our work on phase 2 learning more sounds and developing blending and segmenting skills.
At forest school the children will be looking at changes and patterns. They have already created firework art and made video sound effects... We also made firework paintings inside using brightly coloured paint, a fork and lots of glitter!
In RE we will be learning about the Nativity story and why it is important to Christians.
in December we will be focusing on Christmas!
keep up to date with everything we get up to on Tapestry.
