Topic: The Gruffalo and Friends
During this half term our topic will be 'Winter Tales'. We will start by focusing on the story of 'The Gruffalo' by Julia Donaldson in our Literacy lessons, using the friendly character to help us to begin to write sentences containing adjectives to describe him. We have transformed our role play area into a Gruffalo's Cave and will be using it to help us to act out the story. In mathematics, we will continue to become confident with numbers up to 20. We will look different methods that we can use when subtracting, which will help us to find one more and one less than a given number. Our Educational Visit this term will be to Tamworth Snowdome where we will explore the snow and have fun in the snow setting. We will also have the opportunity to meet a range of animals... including some reindeer!
