Within these areas, we will be looking at different visual representation (such as number lines and part-whole models); finding related facts; comparing number sentences; making number bonds to 100; finding 10 more and 10 less; solving missing number problems, and adding and subtracting 2 digit numbers.
This half term in English, we will be continuing with the Read Write Inc Phonics Scheme, which is closely linked to a variety of both fictional story books and non-fiction books. Within our lessons, we will be exploring a range of grammar, spelling, comprehension and role-play activities in meaningful contexts. We will also be developing our vocabulary in our writing composition, and progressing from writing simple sentences to extending our sentences with conjunctions. We will be enhancing our application of punctuation, and developing our use of adjectives to describe and specify. We will also continue with our handwriting practice.
