Spring Term 2020

Happy New Year!

This half term our focus toys. We are going to be learning about toys which are even older than our Grandparents! We have a brilliant workshop coming in to help us too.

In Literacy we will be reading and reading and re-writing poem called 'What's in the box' to help us learn our alphabet, capital letters and full stops. We will also be making some toy fact files following on from the toy workshop. Then we will be moving on to a story called 'Kipper's toy box'. This time the focus will be on capital letters, full stops and exclamation marks!

In Maths we will be focusing on addition and subtraction with numbers up to 20.


Any questions or issues please just jot a note in your child's red contact book or catch me at the door.
