Welcome to Class 6. We have really enjoyed meeting our new children and getting to know everyone. Already some new friendships are developing both in and out of the class.
Our Topic this term is 'Proud to be me!' where we will be talking about a range of topics relating to ourselves and our families. During our circle times all of our children are learning to listen to the views of other children and we've already found out lots of information about our friends.
We have already been working on listening carefully to the initial sounds in words and lots of our children can already hear the first sound. Shortly the children will be introduced to phonics sessions where we will learn about rhyming and some letters sounds. We will be sending out phonics homework each week to reinforce the sounds we have learnt in class.
In maths we are practicing counting forwards and backwards using number rhymes such as 5 Little Ducks and One potato, Two potato. These help the children to recognise the correct order of numbers which will help when we are learning about addition and subtraction. Later in the term we will move on to learning about shapes and patterns.
Class 6 have been enjoying our PE sessions with Miss Cleminson. She has been very impressed with how well the children have followed instructions and are learning how to take part in team games. Well done Class 6.
