Welcome to Year F's Information Page
On this page you will find:
In the foundation stage, you will find Mrs Grant in Class 4 and Mrs Poupart and Mrs Kruger in Class 3. Mrs Stroud and Mrs Defelice assist across both classes. Class 3 and 4 work together through out the day.
Please visit the 'Home Learning' section under the 'Children' tab for weekly plans and links to phonic and maths games.
Please also visit the School Video section for phonics, maths, stories and other ideas.
We will continue to work on all of the prime areas of learning as the children develop their self confidence and awareness and their social skills. We are also working on their physical skills, in both their gross and fine motor development. Their mathematical and literacy skills are developing daily and the children are encouraged to practise what they have learnt in their discovery time as they play and explore.
This half term we will look at a variety of stories that will be available in the school video section and devlop ideas around these stories each week.
Please see the school video section for ideas on how to make your own play dough.
We will also be beginning on the initial stages of handwriting patterns.
We will be reflecting on the phase 2 sounds and tricky words we have learnt and will begin to learn phase 3. Please look at the school video section to practise the sounds that the children have been taught so far.
Through guided reading sessions the children will be beginning to use their sounds to read simple words then simple sentences.
We will be looking at simple addition and subtraction of 2 single digit numbers and learning about numbers practically. We will be exploring a varying vocabulary to deepen the children's understanding. This half term we will also be exploring 2d and 3d shapes and recognising shapes in the environment.
This half term we will be focusing on number bonds to 10 and continue to count forwards and backwards from 20, identifying one more and one less than a given number.
Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design
We are learning different textures and the children will be exploring these further in their discovery time. We will also be learning about secondary colour mixing.
Understanding the World – The World
We will continue to learn about the seasons and changes over time, exploring our school environment.
