Class 1

Class 1 will be working on the topic of castles this half term.  We will be looking at the parts of a castle and working out what they are used for, making and drawing castles and visiting Tiverton Castle.  We will explore non-fiction books about castles and learn some facts.  In phonics, we will move onto our Set 2 sounds and will continue practising our reading.  In maths, our new target is to recognise numerals to 10 and beyond and we will continue to practise counting to and from 20.  We will be working on estimation and counting to check. We will also be looking at positional language and simple measures for length and capacity.  Towards the end of this half term, we will learn about the Chinese New Year.

After the half term break, our topic will be dragons.  We will explore our descriptive and storytelling language and work on the book; George and the Dragon. We will continue our counting practice, learning to count in 10s up to 100, and look at simple measurements for time.  We will consolidate all the set 1 and 2 sounds we have learned so far in phonics.  Just before the Easter break, we will be learning about the Easter story.

Please support your child by continuing to access the homework activities, reading with your child and putting observations onto Tapestry.  Thank you for all the support you gave in the Autumn Term, the children are making super progress because of it.
