Term 1 - Marvellous Me 

Our Topic this term is Marvellous Me!’ We will be learning all about ourselves and the human body. We will investigate our own family history and learn how to stay healthy.

In Maths we will be focusing on place value, counting, adding and subtracting.  We will be practicing counting forwards, backwards and also using different resources to support our learning.

During our English lessons we will be exploring our new book ' Here we are' where we will learn all about the importance of friendship and belonging.


Home learning for the first two weeks will be focused on reading and couting to 20 forwards and backwards. 

Challenge: Can you count in twos to 20 forwards and backwards?
