Spring Term Planning 2022
It is lovely to see you all back after the Christmas holidays and we hope that you have had a wonderful time celebrating with your family 😊
For the first half of the Spring term our topic will be ‘Heroes and Helpers’ where we will begin our adventure with the story ‘My Mum is a SuperMum.’ We will then zoom onto learning about Firefighters and the Police.
During the second half of the Spring term our topic will be ‘Nature and Changes’ where we will share the books ‘Tad’, ‘Christopher Nibble’ and ‘The Bug Collector.’
In phonics we will be consolidating our knowledge of Phase 2 and Phase 3 single letters, digraphs and tricky words. We will continue to develop our blending and segmenting skills enabling us to become more fluent readers and writers. We will also begin to develop narrative skills through oral and written stories.
Within Maths, we will continue to develop a deeper understanding of number and link these to shapes. We have learnt up to the number 9; linked to the shape nonagon. As we move beyond 10, the children will work on ordering, partitioning and representing ‘teen’ numbers as well as addition and subtraction with single digit numbers.
As part of Understanding the World, we will explore Winter, Chinese New Year and Pancake Day and then following the half-term break we will explore the change of the season from Winter to Spring, Mother’s Day, Easter and Sport Relief. These are in addition to our planned focus activities linked to our topics.
In Expressive Art and Design we will be developing our artistic skills through creating different emergency vehicles, painting and drawing using different media with a focus on observation drawings and learning about transient art. We will also be honing our performance skills including singing, dancing and acting out different roles.
