Welcome back to Term 2 of the Autumn term.
We have lots of exciting things planned for this term and can’t wait to get started!
In Maths, we will be practising counting to 100. We will be learning to count in 5’s. We will be looking at 2D and 3D shapes, repeating patterns and symmetry. We will continue our work on addition, as well as starting to subtract, halve and divide. Most of this work will be done practically, with numbers 0-20, but we will also look at writing number sentences, focussing on number formation.
We will continue to work on our letter formation and writing and spelling simple words. We will begin to put sentences together focussing on capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. We will be writing a leaflet and a diary.
The children will continue to learn High frequency words and Tricky words, as well as working on their phonics so that they are able to read simple 3 and 4 letter words.
In RE, we will be looking at what the Bible tells us about how we should treat other people. We will use this to reflect on how we can be a good friend. Towards the end of the half term, we will look at what advent is, the Christmas story and how Christians celebrate this special time.
The children will familiarise themselves with a computer keyboard and learn how to type simple words and sentences. They will also learn how to use different keys such as: delete, backspace, shift, caps lock, enter/return, space bar. They will consider online communication and how it is similar and different to real life communication. We will focus on appropriate interactions online.
The children will learn how to express their feelings in Welsh using phrases such as ‘dw i’n hapus’ and ‘ dw i’n trist.’ They will also learn ‘toys’ vocabulary and the phrase ‘Ga i ....’ so that they can write a letter to Father Christmas in Welsh!
We will be looking at how exercise affects our body and why we need sleep. The children will take part in a simple science experiment to investigate the effects of sugar on our teeth and why it is important to brush them daily.
In Expressive Arts, the children will think about their feelings and the feelings of others. They will create simple dance routines, learning new vocabulary and will link this to how they are feeling. They will explore colour mixing using paints and how different colours can express different moods and feelings.
