Autumn 2 - Winter 

 

Our topic this half term will be Winter. We will be learning lots about seasonal changes and festive celebrations.  

 

In literacy children will take part in fun activities and games to continue to cover phase 2 of letters and sounds. By December children will have learnt all phase 2 sounds and will begin consolidation activities to secure their knowledge and confidence in phase 2.  As a class we will continue to share many books and use these to inspire child-led writing. Children will be encouraged to share their written work with the class and talk about their ideas to further develop their communication skills.

 

In mathematics our focus will be on basic number calculations. The children will have a go at a range of activities involving adding, subtracting and doubling. They will learn a range of methods to add and subtract and will be given the chance to choose their preferred method.

 

In the afternoons we will focus on topic work, exploring Winter through art, science, RE and PSED. There will be a particular focus on preparing children for our nativity performance which will take place in church in December.

 

In all areas pupils will be encouraged and enabled to complete an increasing number of tasks and activities independently in order to build up confidence and independence.
