Welcome to Gnome Class!
Will You Read Me a Story?
Welcome back to Gnome Class! We hope you had a fantastic half term break and you're ready to dive back into your learning.
Our topic this half term is 'Will You Read Me a Story?' This topic is all about our favourite stories and traditional children's books. If you have a favourite story book that you would like to share with us, please bring it in!
In English, we will be writing speech bubbles, lists, letters, poems and instructions. We will learn about adjectives and discuss what we would wish for if we had our very own Fairy Godmother!
In Maths, we will explore 2D and 3D shapes and their properties, learn about capacity, share objects between a number of groups and measure objects using nonstandard measures. We will learn to count in 2s and identify one more and one less than objects and numbers.
In Phonics, we will continue to learn Phase 2 letters and sounds. We are beginning to write simple VC and CVC words using the graphemes we have learnt. Phonics key rings will be sent home and updated when your child is confident with new sounds.
