We will be practising and using number bonds within 10, adding and subtracting numbers within 10 as

well as learning to solve problems involving addition and subtraction.


Our English learning focus

We will be exploring the book Toys in Space by Mini Grey and using it to learn how to write our own

adventure stories. We will also be learning to write instructions, labels, lists and captions.


Our Theme is...

This term our theme is entitled “Toys, Toys, Toys” This is a History and Science based theme which explores our senses and helps us to answer the questions “How do we change as we grow up?” and “ How can we find out about the past?”


We will also be learning about parts of the body,  the story of Lego and Ole Kirk Christiansen and playing playground games.


We will be designing and making a baby mobile later in the half term.


Your involvement..

We would love it if you could:

Use photos to make a timeline with your child and discuss how they have changed as they have grown up.

Please let us know if you can spare an afternoon to listen to readers,  become an interviewee about your favourite toy or play Maths games with the children as this would be very appreciated.

If you have a chance, please pop in and introduce yourself to Teresa and I.
