AUTUMN 2 TOPIC: Light and Dark
THIS WEEK’S LEARNING
- Core Text: It was a cold dark night by Tim Hopgood
- Phonics learning: This week the children will be in group phonics lessons which will continue to work on blending and reviewing previously taught sounds. Please check Google Classroom for homework relevant to your child’s group.
Mastering Number: This week, the children will build on their understanding of the composition of numbers by investigating the composition of 3, 4 and 5. Composing and de-composing numbers involves the children investigating part–part–whole relations, this will include:
- investigate ways to compose and de-compose sets of 3, 4 and 5
- explore how 1 and 2 are parts of 3.
- use spatial language to describe the shapes
- explain that different parts can make the same whole.
UW & CAL: We will be learning about The Nativity Story and why Christians celebrate Christmas.
EAD: We will be engaging in a variety of Christmas crafts. Santa’s grotto and winter wonderland are in full force in our role play areas.
