In English we will be looking at a range of exciting stories to inspire our writing. These include: The Gruffalo and The Snail and The Whale. We will be focusing on the following skills:

  • To use Fred sounds to help read and write words.
  • To form letters clearly.
  • To write on the lines.
  • To use finger spaces between words.
  • To learn to use capital letters at the start of a sentence.
  • To learn to use full stops at the end of a sentence.
  • To learn to use adjectives in my writing. 
  • To start to identify rhyme and rhythm in texts. 



In Maths, we will be focussing on: 

  • Place value within 10
  • Addition and subtraction within 10
  • Geometry - Shape
  • Place value within 20

Within each strand, children will also focus on reasoning and applying taught concepts - this will help us to be better mathematical thinkers.
