Reading in 2020
Reading is a crucial skill for children to learn, and regular practice at home can help them develop. Furthermore reading is a pleasurable activity and a great activity to share at home.

What are knowledge organisers?
Knowledge Organisers show the basic knowledge we want all children to have learnt through a topic. These are used in class as a tool to help children recall information. Please look at these with your child at home as well - they are a great way to find out more about what your child is learning.
Please see below for our current Knowledge Organisers. These are also available for you on Dojo.
Our second RE focus of Autumn term is Baptism.
We will be learning about how being baptised is one way we are welcomed into God's family. We will learn what happens during the ceremony and some of the signs and symbols we may come across.
We will assess all the children’s current phonics knowledge in order to teach them in small groups based on their ability.
Daily phonics lessons will continue as well as regular reading in class. We will send home a pack of phonics flash cards at the start of each new phase. We will then send a weekly message via Dojo, with details of what sounds your child has been learning, in order that you can support your child’s learning at home.
Below are some links to websites that provide games to play at home as well as support and information on helping your child with phonics.
English and Topic
Our English work this half terms focuses on the book "The Queen's Hat" by the author Steve Antony. Using "The Write Stuff" approach, the children will create their own version of the story based on key pictures from the book.
We will also be exploring the royal family through our history work. In History we will be looking at changes in living history, by exploring our own families and how our experiences as a child are different to our grown ups at home.
In Science we will be looking at animals and how we can classify them, see our knowledge organiser above for more information.
Reception continue to focus on numbers to 10, looking in depth at the numbers 1-3 and confidently being able to identify, compare and describe how they can be made. They will then start to explore circles and triangles to enforce this knowledge.
In Year 1 we begin looking in more detail at place value, before moving on to addition and subtraction.
