Literacy: Our class story this half term is ‘The very hungry Caterpillar’. The children are benefitting from a sensory story alongside using props and aided language support to enhance communication. During literacy lessons we will be working hard on individual ILP targets and especially focusing on our fine motor control, matching and using a writing tool. We will also be looking at improving our fine motor skills with threading activities, posting and sorting activities.

Numeracy: In our numeracy lessons, we will be focussing on shape, number recognition and counting to five. Again we will be working hard on our individual ILP targets but will be concentrating our lessons on using the interactive white board with a particular focus on counting games, jigsaws games and 3D shape puzzles. We will also be sorting with a given criteria, posting shapes, and drawing large shapes on the floor with chalk.

Topic: This term, our topic will be ‘Tell Me a Story’ we will be looking at and exploring a range of books and enjoying them together. We will focus on how we turn the pages of books and what the pictures tell us. During our topic time we will have the opportunity to play with a range of toys following the children’s interests. We will be trying to play with toys appropriately especially our favourites such as cars, balls and the toy food.

PE: This half term we will be participating in gymnastic sessions. We have already been trying our best to balance on equipment if different widths and jump from apparatus with minimal support. We have also been very privileged to continue our rugby sessions with a rugby instructor which the children have loved!

Food technology: During our cookery lessons, we will be working on a variety of skills linked to phonics. We will be exploring various foods that start with our letter of the week.

We are looking forward to an exciting term. If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact me at school or via the school diary.

Kind regards,

Caroline Glover (class teacher).
