Week Commencing 22nd May 2023

We are learning this week:

Literacy- This week, we will be focusing on rhyme. We will be finding rhyming pairs and continuing our own rhyming string using a class favourite ‘Oi Frog’ by Kes Gray.

Maths- This week we will understand that shapes can be combined and separated to make new shapes. We will fit shapes together and break them apart, noticing the new shapes we have made. 

Phonics– This week, we are continuing Phase 4 as part of the Unlocking Letters and Sounds scheme. We will learning how to recognise and read adjacent consonants in words for example ‘lf’, ‘pt’, ‘fr’. These are not taught as a single unit of sound but used to recognise and help blend longer words.

Our adjacent consonants we are focusing on this week are: sp,st,sw, tr, tw

Common Exception Word: when, out, what

Topic– Our overarching topic this term is ‘Isn’t it Amazing?’. This week our theme will be bees. We will learn about the importance of bees and what we can do to save them. We will be investigating honeycomb from a real bee hive and learning about the bee life cycle.
