Welcome to Clee class, our teachers are Miss Luke, Mrs Kings and Mrs Owen.
Our whole school topic this term is ‘World Kitchen’. In Clee our focus will be ‘Food, Glorious Food’ and we will be using stories to support our writing, artwork, cooking and personal and social development. We will create a booklet of recipes linked to our focus stories and we will send these home to each family at the end of the spring term.
Our focus stories this term are;
- Goldilocks and the Three Bears
- The Gingerbread Man
- The Little Red Hen
We will also be sharing a range non-fiction books linked to our topic.
We will be supporting the children to plan and write their own simple sentences and segment words to write. We will be focusing on using spaces between words and full stops at the end of a sentence.
We will continue to have a daily letters and sounds session where we will learn the Phase 3 phonemes (sh, ch, th, ng, etc.) and focus on blending sounds to read and write simple words.
In Mathematics we will be learning to recognise and order numerals to 20. We will be adding and subtracting practically using objects and exploring place value. We will also be looking at the length of objects and describing the characteristics of 3D shapes
Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design
We will be learning about the celebrations of Chinese New Year, Shrove Tuesday and Easter.
We will be learning nursery rhymes with a food theme ready for our Rhyme Time concert for parents.
We will also be cooking, learning about food, making Chinese lanterns and exploring different role play activities.
