 Language and Literacy

We will be learning : 

  • to describe story settings, events and characters in traditional tales. 

  • to retell a 5 part story by creating a story map and using the language; Once upon a time first/next/then/finally and happily ever after. 

  • to read words and simple sentences and to begin to form our letters correctly to write.



    We will continue to learn new digraphs and will be putting the sounds together to blend for reading and to separate them to segment for spelling.  Please

    support your child by putting the sounds they bring home together to make words for them to blend to read, for example; sh o p    shop   ch i p   chip . 

    Please  support your child in reading on sight the tricky words we will be sending home.



    We will be learning :

  • to estimate how many objects we can see and then counting to check.

  • to find the total number of items in two groups by counting all of them. 

  • to use the vocabulary involved in adding and subtracting. 

  • to begin to record calculations.

  • to order items by weight or capacity.



    Our topic is ’Once upon a time’. 

    We will listen to a range of traditional tales and through these stories we will discuss feeling hungry and eating at regular intervals.

    We will learn about healthy eating.

    Through the characters and events we will consider the consequences of how some words and actions can hurt others feelings and we will begin to be aware of our own feelings.


    We will talk about how things happen and how things work.
