The children in Orchid class settled in really well over the first half term. They have come back happily, ready to start the new term and are excited to be back. They are using all areas in class and outside well and keeping themselves very busy.
Our topic this term is ‘We Are Explorers.’ We began the week reading the story ‘The Gingerbread Man’. There are lots of fun activities planned to reinforce the story so the children become familiar with it.
In Maths we will be looking at Shape and changes that can be made with the number 5 – Finding one more and one less to add and take away, and learning our number bonds to make 5.
The children have been doing lots of practise with phonics and are learning lots of new graphemes and how to write the correct formations of those letters. It’s going to be a very busy term!
