A Walk in the Woods...
This term our topic will be 'A walk in the woods...' - we will continue to be inspired by nature. Our core text will be the story 'May I come in?' which you can see a reading of in the video below! We will be using this story for our Talk for Writing and learning the words and actions to re-tell it ourselves.
This story will lead us to exploring weather, animal homes and habitats and of course, what's in the woods!
We hope to go on our own walk in a local park, but with things being a bit different this year, you will have to bare with us as we try to organise the logistics of this!
As we will be well into winter this will inspire our investigation of the seasons. We loved spotting the changes in our environment as Autumn crept in so we will keep our eye out for more seasonal changes in the new year!
We will be moving onto phase 3 phonics in January, whilst also continuing with phase 1 and phase 2 consolidation. You should have received your child's phonics assessment so you can see where they are upto with their letters and sounds.
We will be writing simple sentences and captions using our wonderful phonic knowledge and becoming even more independent with our writing!
We will enjoy some more outdoor maths and focus on number bonds to 5.
We look forward to welcoming you back!
