Letters Home

Monday 18th April

This half term we are exploring ‘Plants, Trees and the Weather’, whilst we explore this, we will be looking at different plants and trees, and how the weather changes throughout the year. 

This half term we will be revising all of our sounds from Phase 2 and 3. We will be starting Phase 4 of Bug Club Phonics and learning to write CVCC and CCVC words as well as polysyllabic words. We will continue to work on letter formation. The children will be working on reading and writing the Phase 4 Tricky Words : said, do, there, out, have, some, little, what, one, like, come, so, were, when. 

 In PATHS we will continue to work on managing and understanding our feelings and emotions. We are working with the children on how to be cooperative with their peers in their class and strategies for calming down when we are upset (eg The Turtle).  

We will be ensuring that the children are confident in knowing how to keep themselves safe online and discussing ‘PANTS’ from the NSPCC.

We will be counting to 20 and beyond, forwards and backwards, this term. We will be looking at numerical patterns such as doubling, halving/sharing and odds and evens.

We will be disussing measurements and comparing length, height, weight and distance.

We will be learning about the time Jesus had on Earth between Easter Sunday and Pentecost. We will learn about the Holy Spirit coming to Earth in place of Jesus.

Linking with our Topic, we hope to have a trip to the woods this half term so we can explore the plants and trees in our local area.

This term is another super busy term, and we can’t wait to see what the children discover.

Mrs Child, Mrs Chapman and Mrs Guyatt
