Our theme for this half term will be "On The Farm . So, in class we will be focusing on texts that follow and link to this theme. We will be carrying out fun filled activities in the classroom linked to our texts over the upcoming weeks and focusing on building relationships and getting to know each other. We will also be having some special visitors in throughout this half term so that the children get the opportunity to talk to people who are in the community and help us on a daily basis.
Throughout this half term we will be continuing to learn new phonics sounds and alternative sounds. In Maths we will be looking at "Length, Height and Time", "Building 9 and 10" and "Exploring 3D Shapes".
During our choosing time in the afternoon we will be introducing the children to rainbow challenges. This will give the children the opportunity to access different areas of the classroom and continuous provision set up with the opportunity to collect different coloured lollipop sticks across the week. If by the end of the week the children have got all of the lollipop sticks they will be able to have a dip in my special treasure chest for a prize.
During this term we will be reading lots of books in class linked to our topic. If you have any books at home that link to this topic please let the children bring them in to share with the class.
These are some of the books that we will be reading:
