Jellyfish Autumn 2 2018 Newsletter

Our Toy Story topic will focus on asking and answering questions to find out about toys in the past, comparing these to modern day toys.

In Literacy we will read stories including Kipper’s Toybox, sharing ideas about different toys and how they have changed over the years.  The children will find out about asking questions and using question marks to punctuate their questions.  We will continue to learn new phonic sounds, using these in our class reading and writing activities.

To help develop an understanding about the past, in Maths we will be ordering and sequencing our daily routines, days and months as well as using language of earlier, later, yesterday, today and tomorrow.

To develop an understanding of the past, the children will think about changes in their lives and share special toys and memories.  They will find out about the toys their parents and grandparents enjoyed before looking at toys beyond living memory.

In our Science we will focus on investigating the materials that toys are made with and asking questions about how these have changed over time.

We will continue to learn Set 3 sounds, beginning with split digraph sounds like those found in cake, bone, huge and smile.  You can find out more about these with this video.
