Spring 2

During this half term we will continue to use our knowledge of letters and sounds to date to read and write words that can be sounded out. We will continue to practise our letter formation and handwriting.

We will be using time connectives to sequence the story, Jack and the Beanstalk and using adjectives to describe characters from the story and then using our list of adjectives, we will be writing a description of the characters using capital letters, full stops, finger spaces, adjectives and commas.

We will continue to count in steps of 2, 5 and 10. We are going to begin doing column addition which involves partitioning that we have previously learned.  We will also identify, name and describe the properties of common 3D shapes.

We will be labelling different parts of a plant and discussing the purpose of each part.  We are going to plant our own seeds and put them in different places in our classroom, some will have water and sunlight and some without and after that we will be discussing and observing the plants throughout the term.

We are going to start our new topic, Toys, in History and comparing toys from the past and present.

Our PSHE work this half term will be ‘Caring for the Environment'.
