Half Termly Topics:

Our topic for Autumn term 1 was 'All about Me'.  

For the second half of the Autumn term in Early Years our topic was light and dark. We learnt about Halloween, bonfire night, Diwali, remembrance day, nocturnal animals, space, Hanukkah and of course Christmas. In maths we learnt our number bonds to five and learnt more, fewer and equals to. We also learnt addition and subtraction, developed our knowledge of pennies (1p, 2p and 5p), practised telling the time (o’clock), learnt 2D shapes and positions. In phonics we moved into phase three phonic sound and words and developed our reading and writing of cvc words. Throughout the half term we did outdoor learning, art, ICT, PSHE, understanding the world and music all linked into our themes. In December we were also visited by our very own little elf to get us in the Christmas spirit! 


PE day is Wednesday, so children will need to come to school in their PE kits on that day.

Homework and Spellings:

Homework and spellings will go out on Seesaw on Fridays, to be uploaded by the following Friday. We will do spelling tests with the children in school on Friday mornings (when they are ready for this).
