In writing I will:

Sit at a table, holding a pencil comfortably and correctly. Form lower case letters correctly. Form capital letters that are the same size. Re-read what I have written to check it makes sense. Read aloud my work clearly enough and confidently to be heard by peers and teacher. Learn to write the tricky words:  To, the, no, go, into, I.

What else will we try to do?

  • To create story maps of Mog the forgetful cat, Mog and me etc and the Elmer stories.
  • Lists – what does Mrs Thomas need from the shop for Mog and all the Thomas family?
  • Speech/thought bubbles – what did Mog think, what did Mr Thomas say?
  • To create an information leaflet about the vet:
    • How to look after a pet.

In Reading I will:

  • To learn to retell the story of Mog the forgetful cat, Mog and me etc, Elmer stories and The Jolly Postman.
  • To use books and iPads to research what they will see at the vet.
  • To segment and blend CVC words.
  • To teach children specific strategies to help them remember tricky words.
  • To recognise the tricky words:  To, the, no, go, into, I.
  • To read red level books in print and online.
  • To access the Activelearn phonics games and learning resources daily.

In Maths

  • Recognise and name common 2-D and 3-D shapes, including 2-D shapes [for example, rectangles (including squares), circles and triangles].
  • Compare, describe and solve practical problems for capacity and volume [for example, full or empty, more than, less than, half, half full, quarter].
  • Measure and begin to record lengths and heights. 
  • To identify 1 more and 1 less. 
  • To order sizes and use the language of size. 
  • To work independently.

We will also:
