Autumn 1

This term we will be doing lots of exciting learning! We will be making new friends and getting used to our new environment.

In literacy we will start by learning and sharing our favourite nursery rhymes and traditional tales. We will then focus on a book called Handa’s Surprise we will be retelling and re-enacting the story as well as talking about our favourite fruits and healthy eating. We will also start daily phonics and 1:1 reading.

We will be looking at maths in our everyday environment and investigating numbers and shapes at school and in our local area. We will count different amounts of various objects and then move on to estimating how many and  check by counting.

In PE we will be experimenting with different ways of moving and we will be learning to jump and land appropriately.
