*Please try and listen to your child read every night and return their books and reading records to school daily.

In English we have started to read the story Farmer Duck.  The children have looked carefully at what we learn about the characters and we are going to continue to think about the events in the story before using our own ideas to innovate a new story.

The focus this term will be using capital letters and full stops.

To support your child's writing at home practising letter formation would be a good task.

In Maths our focus will be mainly number.  We have practised orally counting up to and beyond 100 and writing numbers.  In practical work we have been counting objects up to 10 and writing the names of the words.  We will be moving onto exploring place value of numbers above 10 looking at tens and ones.  Before half term the children will be completing some measurement tasks.

In History this half term we will be exploring changes withing living memory.  To do this, we will be exploring the world of toys and how different family members have played with different toys.  We will also look at the development of modern toys and computers.

In Science we have started our work exploring the different seasons and how things change.  Once the leaves begin to change and drop I will arrange an Autumn walk for our class so we can go and experience Autumn and gather evidence of the seasonal change.  

If you collect any leaves, conkers or any other signs of Autumn please feel free to send them into school for us to look at.

Subitize Rock (soo-bi-tize) | Math Song for Kids | Jack Hartmann

Subitize to 10. Subitize is the ability to tell the number of objects in a set, quickly, without counting. Subitizing develops math fluency, when students recognize sets without having to count each object and it helps develop number sense and the ability to perform mental math.

Here are our Days of the Week and Months of the Year songs.
