  • Read cvc words based on the texts.

Reading

  • To learn to retell the story of the texts Supertato,  Handa’s surprise, The lighthouse keep’s lunch and Spinderella.
  • To use books and iPads to research what they will see at the garden centre.

  • To create an information leaflet about what is at the garden centre.

In Maths we will:

  • Select a small number of objects from a group when asked, for example, ‘please give me one’, ‘please give me two’.
  • Recites some number names in sequence.
  • Create and experiment with symbols and marks representing ideas of number.
  • Begin to make comparisons between quantities.
  • Use some language of quantities, such as ‘more’ and ‘a lot’.
  • Know that a group of things changes in quantity when something is added or taken away.
  • 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].
