Our topic this half term is:

Our topic this half term is PSHE based that involves reading the story 'The Invisible String' and activities based around the Disney Pixar film 'Inside Out'. 


A link to the story 'The Invisible String' is below for you to enjoy at home:

In maths, we will be doing lots of practical based activities based around matching and sorting, numbers 1-5, counting and comparing amounts and exploring simple patterns. 

Your children will also start their Read Write Inc. phonics journey this half term. This will involve introducing the children to set 1 sounds and meeting Fred Frog who aids with early reading skills.


Home Learning:

This weeks home learning - 19.10.20:

  • Reading - children should read/share a book at home at least four times a week. (This includes their school reading book and other books from home). 
  • Reading - can you learn this week's tricky words? Tricky words cannot be sounded out, just learnt by sight. Tricky word sheet can be found in the files to download below.
  • Maths - This week, we are learning how to count unseen objects and to visualise one more and one within 3. Drop pennies into a cup or stones into a bucket and ask the children to count the sounds. Ask questions such as 'If i take one away/add one more, how many will there be?' Encourage your child to use their fingers as they count the sounds. Alternatively, they could record their own marks on a piece of paper. Don't forget to send us any photos of your learning over on class dojo.
  • Topic - log into purple mash and find your 2do this week. Can you draw a picture of yourself? Look closely in the mirror and take a look at what makes you different and special!

Purple Mash log ins have been sent home for your children to access home learning tasks. If you need your child's log in details, please ask a member of staff.

MiniMash: We encourage children to explore MiniMash at home as well as in the classroom, and try out different activities linked to learning across the curriculum. We also occasionally set tasks on Minimash for the children to complete.
