Term 2:

This term we will be gearing up to Christmas and rehearsing our Nativity!

In Literacy we will be playing lots of rhyming games and practising handwriting patterns. We will also practice reading and writing our names.

In Maths we are playing lots of counting games together, focusing on counting objects 1:1 and matching them to their corresponding numeral.

Our daily Physical and PSED development programme called ‘Sherbourne’ will continue to take place each day in the school hall. It is an excellent session that supports children’s physical strength,co-ordination and balance as well as friendships and listening skills.
