Autumn Term 2 sees us delve into the wonderful text of 'Owl Babies', 'Can't You Sleep Little Bear?', 'The Gruffalo' and 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears'. It is also the term in which we become immersed in preparations for Christmas. It is, quite possibly, THE most exciting half term!
When the children return to school, they will learn about habitats of woodland animals, as well as animals which are nocturnal. They will find out facts about owls, such as what owls eat, how they move and the children will even have the opportunity to dissect owl pellets, trying to guess which small mammal the owl had eaten for their last meal of the day!
The children will become more familiar with retelling stories in their own way and will, of course, take part in acting out well-known texts.
Phonics continues to play an integral part of teaching and we will keep you up to date with which phase and set we are up to in class via our newsletters. The children and myself have been practising being videoed during our Phonics session, so that you can practise at home. We will upload it to this page once we have ensured that no child, without granted permission, features in the video.
