This year, your child will have the opportunity to learn and discover through a range of different topics such as:
- All About Me & Autumn
- Traditional Tales & Christmas
- Journeys and Transport
- Wild & Endangered Animals
- Growing & Spring
- Fantasy & Summer
The children will be doing many fun and challenging activities in all areas of the curriculum related to some core books.
Literacy: In Literacy, the children will be learning to write their names independently. At Mission Grove we follow the Read Write Inc. programme where the children will be learning their letter sounds and the mnemonics that help them form their letters, write CVC words and learn to read. Helpful resources and tutorials for parents can be found on the following website: http://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/
The children will bring home two books a week. One is a reading book, which we ask you to help your child read and the other is a storybook, which they have chosen from our library bus. We also provide your child with a reading record book. This allows us to record your child’s books and for you to make a comment on the books.
Maths: In Maths, the children will be learning to recognise, order, match and write numbers up to 20 and beyond. Children will use Numicon to help them to problem solve and recognise number bonds to 10. Alongside Numicon and other resources, pupils will also be encouraged to count and recognise numbers using natural resources.
We no longer set homework for children at Mission Grove. We would like you to engage in reading daily with your child using Bug Club. Your child's class teacher will provide you with log in details shortly.
