Comets

 

Hello everyone and welcome to the Comets homepage!

 

I hope your child has had a great start to their time in Comets this year. We will be continuing to recognise numbers, shapes and read measurements during our maths lessons, whilst developing our knowledge of letters and sounds in phonics. We will be focussing on an array of topics such as 'Ourselves, Around the World and Mixed up Fairytales.' I look forward to seeing you taking part in your child's learning during 'Stay & Play' sessions, if you are able to, after the October half term holidays.

 

Please remember, if you have any worries or concerns, feel free to come in for a chat after school or send me a message on class dojo.

Our Topic This Half Term is...

 

All About Me

 

This half term we will be thinking all about our 'Ourselves.' We will also be looking at our family, our skeleton and our 5 senses. Our learning will focus around 7 key questions;

Who is in my family?

What is my skeleton for?

How does my brain work?

What does this object feel like?

How do we hear sounds?

What is that smell?

How do I take care of my mouth?

 

In maths we will begin with assessing what the children know already. After which we will focus on number recognition and consolidating the children's knowledge of 1 more and 1 less.

 

 

Here are a few things we have been doing already
