This term our topic is …

How Do You Scare A Dragon?

We will be thinking about dragons and castles. We will be focusing on the story ‘George and the Dragon.’

Think about:

  • What do dragons look like? What features do they have?
  • What food do you they eat? Where do they live?
  • What are dragons scared of?
  • What is a castle? Have you ever visited a castle? What do they look like? What features does a castle have?

This half term we will also be learning about the Shakespeare play, ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream.’

This half term, we will be thinking about:

  • Writing our friends names, starting with a capital letter.
  • Forming the letters we have learnt using their correct letter formation.
  • Writing lists using initial sounds.
  • Using our phonic knowledge to help us segment and blend CVC word e.g. c-a-t.
  • Forming the letters we have learnt using their correct letter formation
  • Writing lists using initial, middle and final sounds.
  • Writing a simple sentence – using a capital letter, finger spaces and full stops.
  • Using our phonic knowledge to help us segment and blend CVC word e.g. c-a-t.
  • Beginning to recognise tricky words (red words)
  • Counting forwards and backwards to 10.
  • Recognising, ordering and writing numbers to 10.
  • Exploring number facts to 10.
  • Practise our ‘subitising’ skills – develop our ability to instantaneously recognise the number of objects in a small group without the need to count them.

 

Extra activities to try at home:

We are working hard to practise our blending skills for reading. Practise blending using the Phase 2 games ‘Buried Treasure’ and ‘Dragons Den’ (Sets 1-4):
