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 Stean and Mrs Kruger in Class 3. Mrs Stroud and Mrs Defelice assist across both classes and Miss Ridge is joining us for her final placement from Winchester University. 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. There will be lots of opportunities to explore our environment and continue to develop in the specific areas of learning such as Expressive Arts and Design and Understanding the World.
In literacy, we will be continuing to practise phase 2 and 3 sounds and tricky words daily. Please refer to the video section of the website to continue to practise these at home. The children will also be encouraged to use their discovery time to practise what they have learnt and demonstrate how they are able to independently and confidently apply their sounds in reading and writing.
We will continue with practising handwriting patterns to support letter formation.
Through guided reading sessions the children will be beginning to use their sounds to read simple words then simple sentences.
This half term we will look at a variety of stories connected to the sea and pirates and then we will move on to reading The Tiger Who Came to Tea.
In maths, the children will continue to secure their knowledge of numbers to 20; identifying one more and one less, counting forwards and backwards and recalling number bonds to 10. We will continue to develop skills in adding and subtracting and solving problems. We will move on to looking at money and, weight and measure. Again, the children will be given lots of opportunities to practise what they have learned in their discovery time to really demonstrate their embedded skills and have the opportunity to challenge themselves further.
