Welcome to Gnome Class!
Welcome back to Gnome Class! We hope you had a fantastic Christmas break and you're ready to dive straight into the Spring Term.
Our topic this half term is Terrific Transport. This topic is all about different transport and vehicles.
In English, we will be writing captions, stories, instructions and recounts. We will also write postcards and investigate a crime scene - producing a report of our findings. We will continue to apply the skills we learn in phonics into all of our writing.
In Maths, we will explore measurement, money, addition and subtraction. We will deepen our understanding of how to use numicon to solve various maths problems. We will continue to learn about 2D and 3D shapes, whilst finding out how to record data and share objects between groups.
In Phonics, we have now moved onto Phase 3 phonics. Phonics key rings will be sent home and updated when your child is confident with new sounds.
