Elizabeth (Year R)
Our topic for this term is Aspirations and Ambitions.
This term our topic is aspirations and Ambitions. We have been busy learning the new rules and routines of our school and developing our skills as learners. We have looked at several different careers and thought about what we might want to be when we are adults. We will also be learning about Hinduism and Diwali, The Festival of Lights.
We will be making Rangoli patterns on the floor and Mehndi patterns on handprints. We will also be making clay diwa lamps.
In Maths we have been learning to recite, count objects and recognise numbers to 10 then 20. We have begun to use the add symbol to combine two groups of objects and find the total. We have also learnt to recognise, copy and create repeating patterns.
In Phonics we will continue to learn new phonemes/graphemes daily. We have been learning to blend the phonemes to read words and to segment them for spelling.
In Literacy we have been looking at different books, focusing on retelling the stories in sequence. We have also looked at different features of the books, such as the front cover, blurb, and title.
These are some of the activities the children have been up to:-
