In Phonics this half term we will be revisiting set 1 and set 2 special friends. We will also continue practising red words – words that you can’t Fred talk and just have to learn. Any new sounds or red words we learn will be sent home in your child's bookbag. We will be using Fred talk to help us read new words and Fred fingers to help us spell.


In Maths we will be learning which numbers are odd and even, volume and capacity, sorting items into two groups and revisiting number bonds to 10.


In our Theme lessons we are learning about the seaside. This will include learning about where different countries are on a map and using a compass. We will have a go at making a boat that hopefully floats! We will also look at similarities between holidays now and in the past. Finally, we will research into life under the sea and different sea creatures.
