This term our topic is "Do you want to be friends?". We will be spending this term getting to know each other and exploring our new learning environment. As a class, we will be looking at how people can show different emotions through photographs, games and puppets. We will also be talking about what we need to do to be a good friend and how we can all work well together as a class.















In Literacy we will be reading the story Lost and Found and linking it to how the little boy shows his emotions. We will be talking about the story in small groups developing our talking and listening skills.





In maths we are introducing the characters from Ten Town. We will be learning their different formation rhymes to help us remember how to form each number. We will be learning to confidently count, recognise and sort different numbers to 20 independently.
