In English this term we are really focussing on using a good pencil grip to hold our pencil and writing using sounds we know. We are learning lots of new phonics sounds and are trying really hard to include them in our writing!
We have handwriting and phonics twice a week in year 1 and 2 to practice good pencil control and correct letter formation. We all practice dough disco twice a week to make our fingers stronger.
In year 2 our focus is listening to sounds in words and writing them independently to form sentences.
In Year 1 our focus is listening for the initial sounds in words and then having a go with cvc words.
In Reception we are so busy learning different sounds. We are practicing what they look like and listening for them at the start of words.
In reading we are working on holding our books carefully and turning the pages one at a time. We talk about the pictures and tell our own stories and also look for familiar sounds so we can read the words.
Our topic this half term is 'Our Super Senses'. We have looked at Funnybones stories, we are writing poems using our senses and we have done news writing about our weekends.
We are focusing on our number skills this half term. We have practiced counting to 5 and 10. We have been ordering numbers, recognising numbers and counting the correct number of objects. In year 2 we are working independently to try and add numbers together.
Class PE is currently on a Thursday morning.
Year 2 are doing Tennis on a Wednesday afternoon with the sports coach.
