Here is an overview of our learning this week;

In literacy, we are going to be reading 'Percy the Park Keeper', discussing the story and the characters and then using this to invite the children to do some mark making/writing. We will be having a special visitor pop in during the week too so look out for our post about that!

After the Storm:

This week, we are going to be focusing on subitising. Subitising is when you can look at an amount of objects and sat how many there are without counting. For example, looking at dots on a dice and knowing there are 4 just by looking at it. This is a skill we will practise throughout the year.

This week we are learning the digraphs (2 letters that make one sound) ‘ll’, ‘ss’ and ‘ff’.

Expressive Art and Design:
This week, we are going to be learning about some Black artists and musicians/singers. We will be looking at the art of Chris Ofili and the textile designer Althea McNish and in music, we will be looking at a range of British artists. We will appraise all of these artists and their work, discussing what we like and dislike.
