Welcome to Foundation 1!
Our topic this term is 'Seasons and Celebrations'
During the first half term, we will be learning about the changes that Autumn brings such as the leaves changing colour and the weather turning colder. We will also be learning about the Autumn celebrations of Harvest and Halloween.
Here are some of the texts we will be reading this half term ...
In English, we will be developing our language skills by listening to stories and talking about what happened in them. We will use puppets and toys to help us retell the stories and practice using the repetitive phrases that we have heard. We will use our developing writing skills to write for different purposes such as a label or a shopping list.
In maths we will be matching and sorting lots of different objects and talking about how they are the same or different. We will be comparing objects according to their size and using our knowledge to solve problems. We will look at patterns, talk about what we notice and use different resources to make our own patterns. This half term we will be focusing on the numbers 1-5 as part of our 'Number of the Week.'
In F1 we have a focus nursery rhyme each week. These are the rhymes for this half term:
Wind the Bobbin Up
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, Once I Caught a Fish Alive
Old MacDonald had a Farm
Dingle Dangle Scarecrow
