If part of the book has been read at home, please put the page number which you read up to incase we continue reading at school.

English - Our core text for this half term is 'Bog Baby' by Jeanne Willis. We will use this story to practise sentence writing, to describe characters and settings and to make predictions about what will happen next.

Maths - This half term we will be focusing on numbers 0-10, place value and adding and subtracting within these numbers. 

Science - This half term our Science topic is Animals and Body Systems. We will be looking at the different features of animals and ways in which we can group them. We will also look in to humans and how we can lead a healthy lifestyle.
