What are we learning about?
During this topic, we will explore the natural world by learning about what happens during spring time. The children will have the opportunity to look at the smaller wildlife that we have around us, as we go on a bug hunt and complete various activities. We will explore a range of texts, including non-fiction to find out facts as well as fiction books, including ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’. We will look at story writing and the children will re-tell and write their own version of the story.
We will continue with Phase 3 of the phonics programme ‘Letters and Sounds’ and focus on reading words and sentences as well as answering questions about texts.
We will move to phase 4 to read and understand a variety of sentences.
We will continue with guided reading and writing sessions, focusing on letter formation and being able to read and write all of the sounds in a word and all of the words in a sentence.
