This half term we will be exploring Bears. Read on to find out more!
Our core texts this half term will be: We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, The Everywhere Bear, Biscuit Bear and A Brave Bear. We will also be exploring a range of non-fiction texts and videos and discussing the key features of these.
We will begin to develop our writing skills, focussing on holding a pencil correctly and forming pre-cursive letters to write our names and short captions.
In maths we will be counting to 10 and learning to understand what the value of each number is, how to represent these in different ways and to order the numbers.
We will be learning about various types of bears and where they live, using globes and maps to identify different countries. We will also be looking at different types of homes and comparing their similarities and differences. Look out for our models in the role play area!
We will be experimenting with different materials to create texture and new effects. We will begin to represent objects using junk modelling, construction and play dough. We will be looking at how we can build friendship groups and how to communicate with peers.
In P.E we will be going to be doing gymnastics. We will be looking at the use of space and the different ways we can move within spaces. We will be looking at how we move our feet and different parts of our bodies. Finally we will be looking at how to move in different directions.
