Welcome to the Class R
Teachers: Mrs Carter and Mrs Johnson
Our topic for this half term is 'Growth'. We also try to include the children's interests so sometimes include mini topics on a particular theme.
This term we will continue to develop and consolidate our writing skills. We will use our phonic skills and tricky words to help us write lists, captions and short sentences.
This term we will continue to develop and consolidate our reading and phonic skills. We will continue to bring home reading books twice a week and word cards to learn. Our daily phonics sessions called 'Letters and Sounds' will also continue. During these sessions we will consolidate phase 2 and 3 phonemes and words. When we are ready to move on, we will begin to look at phase 4.
This term we focus on recognising and ordering numbers to 20 and beyond. We continue to focus on these key skills: subitising (recognising a number without needing to count), counting, addition and subtraction, composition of numbers, sorting and matching, comparing and ordering and spatial awareness.

Things to Remember!
We have PE on Tuesdays. This half term the children will change into their PE kits. To reduce the number of times the children are changing they will remain in their PE kits to go home.
