In maths we have started focusing on numbers 1-5, looking at different representations, positioning on a number line and number bonds. Children have also embedded their counting skills, making sure they count carefully to use 1:1 correspondance and to say numbers in the correct order.
In Phonics we have been looking at our first set of sounds: s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d, g, o, c and k. Children have been practising recognising these sounds in isolation, but also listening for where they can hear these sounds at the start of a word. From here we will look at reading and writing CVC words (consonant-vowel-consonant) such as ‘sat’, ‘tip’ and ‘got’.
For our topic ‘My Planet’, not only have we been looking at PSED skills to help our children express themselves and regulate their emotions, but we have also been looking at how to be inclusive in our classroom. The children are already enjoying reading books about what makes each child unique and special. Below are some books we will be looking at.
