Term 5 & 6

Term 5


Welcome to term 5. This term we will be exploring the stories 'The Proudest Blue' and ‘I wanna Iguana’ in our literacy sessions.  In Phonics we will continue to focus on learning vowel digraphs and applying these to our reading and writing.  In maths we will be comparing numbers, exploring composition and calculating within 9 & 10, looking at 3D shapes, pattern and learning and remembering number bonds to 5 & 10.


For expressive art and design we will be using natural materials to make pictures and observing plants and other things closely when drawing.


We will be exploring outside, planting beans and seeds and watching them grow. We hope to be able to grow some very tall sunflowers!


In PE this term we will be learning ball skills and dance. Children should bring PE kit into school to change into on PE days.


Please continue to read with your child regularly at home. Books should be read 3 times, once to decode, the second time to build fluency and a third time for fluency and comprehension.  Book change is on Monday and Thursday.  On a Friday we also send home our class reader to share with you at home.


A reminder that children should bring water in their drink bottles and to please not bring toys from home into school other than for show and tell, as it can cause problems, particularly if they get misplaced. Also, as we will be spending a lot of time outside please send your child in with a hat to protect them from the sun. 


If you have any questions or queries please come and talk to one of the Class R team.
