In English, we will be using the Story Box approach, which children first encountered in Early Years, to explore themes of our texts. 

The Story Box ritual is drama-rich and engages leaners through provocations, requiring deep thinking, with a focus on raising the profile of oracy. 

This half term, we will be using 'There's a Tiger in the garden' by Lizzie Stewart. We will be building up to writing our own imagination story and news report. 

Reading diaries and reading books will now be collected in on MONDAY and new books given out on Mondays. We will be completing on a Thursday so please ensure that reading records are in school everyday so that we can record what the learning that has taken place in guided reading. . Thank you for supporting your child with their five reads. The new books are designed to ensure children have a sound understanding of their phonics and have the opportuity to discuss new vocabulary with you. 


We will be learning that all objects are made of one or more materials. Some objects can be made from different materials e.g. plastic, metal or wooden spoons. Materials can be described by their properties e.g. shiny, stretchy, rough etc. Some materials e.g. plastic can be in different forms with very different properties.


In Maths, we are following the Highfield progression of skills document. Where we will be looking at place value, counting forwards and backwards to 100, counting in 2's, 5's and 10's, converting numbers to words, reading and interpreting addition and subtraction sentences. 

Why not watch some of our favourite counting songs at home?


Count to 120
