Welcome to Beech - Reception and Year One
Welcome to Beech Class!
This half-term we have been enjoying our topic 'Marvellous Me' in a range of creative ways. The children have painted wonderful self-portraits, and have shared what they are good at, and what makes them unique. The children have also been very brave sharing their 'All About Me' boxes; taking it in turns to talk about photographs of their families and objects which are special to them. The following table details our curriculum focus this term.
|Reading||We have been sharing a daily poem from the book 'This is the Seed that Grew the Tree', which supports our learning about seasonal change. We have even started to learn a few short poems to recite!|
|Writing||We are writing short sentences using the sounds we have learnt so far, using 'Fred Fingers' to sound out words.|
|Maths||We are subitising numbers within 5, and learning vocabulary to describe tall and short (tallest/shortest, taller, shorter). We have also used autumnal fruits to explore repeating patterns.|
|Reading||We are taking part in 'paired reading', developing our fluency by re-reading our books. Reading books are being changed every three days. Please read as regularly as you can - a few minutes daily is recommended.|
|Writing||Using the text 'Grandad's Island' we are building sentences using 'amazing adjectives'.|
|Maths||We are looking at composition of number to 20.|
In RE, we are learning the 'Creation Story'. We have created a display of our paintings of the 7 days of creation.
In Science, we are learning about the 7 life processes.
In History we are learning about toys of the past. This includes games and toys that our parents and grandparents know.
