Anning Class - Autumn Term 2nd November - 18th December 2020
Welcome back to the second half of our Autumn Term. We hope that you had an enjoyable week together despite all the rain. This half term is a lovely one. We have a super theme to work with called 'From Infinity and Beyond'. We will be learning lots of facts about space and reading lots of different stories. We will of course be learning about The Christmas Story despite not being able to do our usual traditional Nativity. However we will be able to share some of our learning in our website for you to look at. We will still have a Christmas tree in our class and we will do all the usual Christmas activities so that the children can still enjoy this wonderful time of year. Please please keep helping your child to learn their words of the week and their sounds. It is vital this half term that the children are recognising sounds from set 1, 2 and 3 of our Read, Write, Inc scheme. This term the children in Reception should be able to recognise all numbers to 10 and be able to count a set of objects to match each number. Year 1 children should be able to recognise and count reliably all numbers to 20. They should also be able to count on from a given number, e.g. 13 carry on counting. They should also be able to say one more and two more than a given number and be able to order a set of numbers from smallest to biggest. PLEASE have a go at home. Keep looking at our website to see what we are learning about. We will always be near the gate or on the phone if you wish to speak to us. Enjoy the next few weeks. Thank you, from Mrs Taylor, Sarah and Tanya.
