Spring term

This half term we will be using traditional tales to help us with our writing.  We currently have 3 pigs house in our classrooms to encourage reading and writing.  We will be making models from play dough to help with our addition and using shapes to create houses to help with naming 2d and 3d shapes.  Please help us by using our phonics book and completing handwriting practise at home. 

In maths we will be exploring numbers to 20 in great detail. Thinking about what the numeral looks like, counting objects and some simple addition and subtraction. Using the part, part, whole model to find as many ways as possible to make the total.  Please help us by practising writing the numerals at home and counting anything at any time.
