Our Learning in the Summer Term


The children will continue to complete daily group phonic lessons supported by Little Wandle's mnemonics. Every day, the children will practice reading and writing with sounds, concentrating on a sound a day for four days with a recap on day five. The children will also bring home books appropriate for their level to enjoy at home. 


Our talk for writing story for this half term is 'The Papaya that spoke.'

The children will learn the story by following a story map and using actions to match the pictures. 

The children will be encouraged to use finger spaces in their writing and begin to learn about capital letters, full stops and beautiful handwriting.

Spelling challenges will be on a Thursday.


In the Autumn Term, we will learn about place value to 10, which will include learning about greater than, less than and equal to when comparing objects and numbers and using a number line. We will also begin to learn about addition and subtraction within 10. 


This half term, we will focus on the Seasons, weather and day and night. The children will enjoy learning how the Earth spins around the sun and the moon around the Earth.
