English: In English, we will be using stories to provide a foundation for our learning. Children will be exploring stories such as ‘Zog and The Flying Doctors’. We will be using sensory approaches to integrate this into the curriculum. In Tortoises, we will be exploring stories around ‘People Who Help Us’. Our first story will be ‘Zog and The Flying Doctors’. We will use these stories to support us in early reading and with sentence building.


Maths: In maths, we will be focussed on numbers 1-5, colours, 2D shapes, patterns and prepositions. Each day of the week will have a different maths focus. In Tortoises, we will be looking at numbers 5-10 and understanding length, height and time


Science: In Science, we will look at different emergency vehicles and have a go at building our own with construction materials and recycled materials.


Topic: Our topic will be cross-curricular with English. We will be using stories to learn about different people in the community that help us. This will include nurses, cleaners, drivers and farmers.





In Phonics, we practiced our CVC words!


In English, we have learnt about the story of 'The Gingerbread Man' and decorated our own gingerbread people!


In Maths, we have been learning to sort objects into groups. In this photo, Izzy and Daniyah are matching objects to their colour groups!


Also in Maths, we have been learning how to subitise to 5! 


In Topic, we cut out and stuck on lots of things that we like! 


In PSHE, we worked together to sort images of kind and unkind behaviour and we have had a focus on sharing and turn taking. Here is Daniyah signing 'to share'.
