Who Lives in a Rock Pool?
We are starting our topic with a visit to the Blue Reef Aquarium for some hands
on experience to find out about the creatures that live in and around the sea
before using a range of resources to find out about the creatures that interest
us most. The topic also lends itself to lots of creative and imaginative play
opportunities developed through stories, poems and of course children’s own
ideas and imagination.
In phonics we will continue to reinforce letter sounds through word building and
blending. The next phase in Letters and Sounds focuses on introducing vowel
digraphs and trigraphs with shared reading sessions to reinforce keywords and
apply decoding skills.
In number time we are hoping to extend children’s confidence in recognising
numbers up to and beyond 20 through counting games, matching activities and
sequencing tasks. Through practical sessions, we will be developing addition and
subtraction strategies including counting on and counting back. Problem solving
activities will be linked to measures including size, weight and capacity.
Opportunities for investigative play and child initiated learning will continue to
be a central part of daily classroom activities.
Thank you for your support.
