Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
We are now incorporating the full National Curriculum into our day.
In English, we are practicing writing simple sentences using capital letters, full stops and finger spaces correctly. We will be learning about how to add adjectives to make our sentences more interesting. We will be using various writing mediums such as retelling a story, non-chronological reports, poetry and writing instructions.
In Maths, we will be adding and subtracting numbers within twenty. There is a heavy focus on number bonds to 10 and counting forwards and backwards.
Each half term in Discovery, we will be alternating between Geography and History. In Science we will be practicing various scientific skills such as classifying, observing, experimenting and predicting.
Each half term we will be alternating between DT and Art.
In Wellbeing, we are focusing on Being Me in my World, Celebrating Differences, Dreams and Goals, Healthy Me, Relationships and Changing Me.
