In our SEAL numeracy, we are working on our number skills. Recognising, ordering, sequencing numbers (to 15 / 30 / 100). We are working hard to form all our numbers correctly. Our focus this term is adding and subtracting numbers.
Our “Beyond Numeracy” focus is fractions and money. We are learning to recognise and name coins (1p,2p,5p,10p, 20p, 50p) and show them in order of value. We will be counting and adding money (up to 20p) and learning how take away from a given amount to calculate our change. Mrs Summers is also giving us daily money problems to solve.
The Apes and Bears group are learning all their initial and final blends in phonics. The crocodiles are focusing on CVC words (focus: middle o and u)
In writing, we are focusing on using capital letters, full stops, fingers spaces and question marks. We are also making sure that we write our cursive letters correctly (always starting on the line!)
In reading, everyone is working hard to build up their sight vocabulary and increase fluency. We enjoy reading the ORT stories, discussing and asking
questions about a new story each week.
Our project this term is space. We have been learning all about the Earth, Moon, Sun and other planets in the Solar System. We have been learning about astronauts and space travel. In art, we have been looking at collage and painting. We made space rockets and underpants, from our favourite story ‘Aliens Love Underpants’.
In P.E we have been learning some Scottish Country Dances, so far we have worked on the Canadian Barn Dance, Military Tw
o Step and Dashing White Sergeant. Strictly Come Dancing better watch out!!!
