This half term our topic is called…Why do ladybirds have spots?
This means that our learning will be all about minibeasts, where we will explore different insects, explore their habitats and go on a minibeast hunt around the school. We will have opportunities to be creative and make dragonflies, spiders, ladybirds and butterflies. We may even have a chance to make our own minibeast too! These will be great opportunities for colour mixing!
We will have a chance to practice our writing when labelling a minibeast and then having a go at writing a sentence about them too!
There will be lots of other minibeast activities for us to do as part of our provision and we are looking forward to the children enjoying all of the insect fun!
In Maths, we will continue to work with numbers up to 20 and even have a go at taking away by counting back.
Here are some useful links and resources to provide you with additional information.
We deliver our phonics curriculum using SoundsWrite to ensure that the children learn how to decode in a systematic and effective way. Here you will find a link to a free online course that parents can take to help them learn how to support their children in learning to read using SoundsWrite. There are also two documents which provide you with more detail around the key concepts of learning in SoundsWrite.

You will also see there is a free SoundsWrite app too which can support phonics learning at home.
