DIVE INTO A WORLD OF MAKE BELIEVE
F2 will be focusing on bears and reading the famous story We’re going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury.
Our launch day for the new topic ‘Dive into a world of make believe’ will be on Tuesday 10th September and we are asking all children in F1 and F2 to dress up in a make believe costume. We will be developing our story language skills and going on a ‘bear hunt’ ourselves. Please take a look on our class blogs as we immerse ourselves into the changing scenes of the story and bring the story to life through reading the story aloud and responding to the rhyme, rhythm and pattern of this fantastic book
The children will be developing their understanding of numbers and activities that involve counting, comparing and matching quantities to numbers. We use Numberblocks as part of our maths sessions and these clips can be found via the Cbeebies website https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/shows/numberblocks.
History and DT
In F2 we will be focusing on bears and toys and how they looked in years gone by. In Design and Technology (D.T) we will be looking at what bears like to eat, tasting various biscuits and designing our own.
Your child will shortly receive their first reading book in F2. Each Friday your child will receive 2 reading books, each child is expected to read 5 times per week at home and have this signed in their reading log. If your child does this, each week your child will be entered into a reading raffle and could win a fantastic prize.
In F1 children are encouraged to use our lending library and take home books to share with adults at home.
