Welcome to our class page. This term our topic question is" Why is our world wonderful? " We will be using stories and non fiction texts about growing to facilitate our learning. Have a look at the Topic link to find out more. In Numeracy we will be solving addition and subtraction word problems and learning about money. In Literacy we will be creating our own fantasy gardens which we will use to go on lots of adventures through stories, drama and music.
Children should continue to develop their reading skills by looking for words in the world around them and playing word games such as pairs or snap.
We will send home a reading book each day with your child. Take time to share the book with your child asking questions about the story. This is a very valuable time encouraging children to further develop their love of books.
