In literacy we will be looking at three stories: ‘Owl Babies’; ‘Superworm’; and ‘Stick Man.’ The focus this term is familiar settings in fictional books – to fit into our enchanted forest topic. We will be writing  character descriptions and our own version of the stories, using adjectives in our super sentences! How do we make our sentences super in year one? We make sure we include capital letters, full stops and finger spaces!

This term in maths there will be a strong focus on number bonds and place value. To aid this at home you could practice counting objects up to 20 and also counting backwards from 20. We will be investigating numbers that add together to make a sum of 10 and 20. We will also be learning about shapes and their different properties.
