Reading scheme access at home

If you would like to continue to read the scheme books at home this is a great way to access the correct level of books for your child.  Check the level on the back of your current book and start working at that level. If you think they can move up a level give it a go and see how you get on. If they struggle too much continue at the current level, (search The Five Finger Rule to help you assess if the level is correct for your child).

This term our topic for learning is Land Ahoy. We are hoping to visit a local Lifeboat Centre and find out about the work of the RNLI. In this topic we will be focusing on learning about different types of boats and the sea through fiction and non-fiction books. We will explore maps both real and imaginary and learn the parts of ships. We will be exploring and finding out about life at sea as a pirate. 



This term in literacy we will be continuing to learn our letter sounds. We will be learning to spell high frequency words, topic words and learning spelling strategies. We will have daily handwriting practice to reinforce spelling. We will also be learning how to retell and write a pirate story. We will learn to sing and chant different sea shanties. We will use role play, puppets, boats and other small world items to stimulate imagination. 

In Mathematical development we will be learning to compare, contrast order and sequence according to size, colour and shape. We will continue to build on addition and subtraction and learning number facts.  

In welsh, we will be learning about 'Barti Ddu' and describe someones clothing.
