We have been learning all about forgiveness. Forgiveness is our Christian value for this half term.

This Spring half term, we have been exploring our learning through the topics of 'The Hungry Caterpillar' and 'Disney.'

We will be basing our writing on the many inspiring stories which Disney has animated, letting the children's interests and choices guide us. Daily phonics lessons will continue to develop the children's letter, phoneme and word recognition and we will be enjoying lots of engaging class books together, focusing on comprehension and discussion.

In Maths, we will be improving our counting and addition skills and working out one less and one more than a given number. In addition we will be learning about 2D and 3D shapes, measuring length, money and time. Where possible we have been incorporating this learning into our topic, for example using shapes to make princess castles or ordering the numbers on Disney's 'Cars.'

We are looking forward to welcoming Parents/Carers into the classroom for busy fingers time on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
