Key Information


 We will be starting with basic  Phase 1 phonics focusing on rhyme, alliteration and oral blending.  You can help your child by sounding out words. 

Go and get you c-oa-t.

Can you h-o-p ?  

We have now started Phase 2 phonics and are starting to read and spell words and captions. 


Continue to read with your child and practise the flashcards sent home each week. 

 We will also be focusing on ‘tricky words’ these are words that can not be sounded out, rather they need to be learnt from sight.

This term we will be looking at the words: I, the, no to, go, into.

We will be retelling the story and learning to write basic sentences.e move through our phonics, we will begin to identify initial sounds in words and begin segmenting and blending words.  We will be able to create labels and a basic captions. 

Maths Autumn

We will be looking at counting to 10 forwards and backwards from any given number. We will also be exploring and representing numbers to 5 in lots of different ways. We will be hunting for numbers in the environment.  We will be looking at 2d shapes and printing with these. When you are out and about, see if your child can find any numbers or shapes in the environment. Please click on the picture for a great counting song. 

We have been looking at numbers 1 and 2 and looking at representing them and finding them in the environment.

Physical Development (PD)

We will be exploring big gross movements to help our muscles grow big and strong. This will include big circles forwards and backwards, lines up and down, running, jumping,   crawling, hopping, climbing and stretching. We will also be doing lots of exercises to help strengthen the muscles in our hands and arms before we learn to write.
