Our topic this half term is:   


                  Marvellous Machines


During this term the children will be learning about different types of technology and exploring how they help us. We will compare how technology has changed and how engineers improve designs. During this term we will explore celebrations and traditions such as Bonfire Night, Diwali and Christmas. Throughout December the children will be working with Reception to perform our very own Christmas Performance. 

In phonics, we will continue to read a wide selection of stories, rhymes and poetry as well as exploring body percussion and sound patterns. In Maths, the children will learn about positional language and continue develop counting skills and the understanding of addition and subtraction through songs, rhymes and games.

The children will  also be starting PE lessons in the hall. We will introduce a session called 'Doodlesticks' which incorporates gross motor development with making marks to music .


Home Learning:

MiniMash: Children are encouraged to explore MiniMash at home as well as in the classroom, trying out different activities linked to learning across the curriculum. 

Home Learning Project: We encourage children to complete a home learning project linked to their curriculum project being studied with some help from their grown up, if needed. Home learning projects provide a fun and creative opportunity for children to practise and apply new skills, as well as express their knowledge in a topic area.
