What we are doing this half term
Our English topic will be focused around the book ‘The Story Machine’ as children will be exploring story’s with familiar settings. We will begin our half term by looking at labels, lists and captions. The children will also be exploring a selection of stories with familiar settings. They will be looking at the different characters and settings, before creating their own story.
During this half term we will be concentrating on number. We will be focusing on the children being able to recognise and write numbers 1-20. Counting objects and finding 1 more and less will also play a big part in the Maths lessons this half term. We will also begin to look at the 10 and 5 timetables through songs and games.
During science this half term we will be looking at the human body and our five senses. They will explore body parts, identify their names and discuss what we use them for. They will also investigate their five senses and explore how they help us each day.
This half term children will be exploring old and new toys through the theme of Elliot’s toy box and attic. We will discuss how toys have changed over time, focusing on how they are made what they are made from and the impact technology has had on toys.
