Maple Class

Welcome to our Maple Class page! Here we will share the adventures of our Nursery and Reception children.

 Autumn term 1:

Maths

In Maths, we will be learning to recognise and describe repeating patterns and to build our own. We will then be learning about numbers to 5. We will learn to order and recognise numerals and count using 1:1 correspondence. We will start to make amounts in different ways and recall one more and one less facts.

Reading

We will be focusing on ‘The Jolly Postman and Other People’s Letters’. We will learn to retell the story, extend our vocabulary and start to identify the different parts.  Everyday, we will vote for the story we want to hear at the end of the day.  We will also take part in group guided reading sessions. In phonics, we will be learning to recognise different sounds, and blend them together to read CVC words, captions and sentences.

Writing

In phonics, we will be learning to spell different words using the sounds we have learnt and we will practice writing words, captions or sentences to match a picture. We will also focus on forming letters correctly. We will complete a daily writing challenge and apply our writing skills in literacy and other areas of the classroom.

Autumn term 2:

Maths

Linked to Goldilocks and the Three Bears, we will be learning to order objects by size, length, weight and capacity. We will consolidate our knowledge of numbers to 5 and one more and one less facts and start to recall number bonds to 5. We will then start learning about numbers to 10.

Reading

We will be focusing on ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’. We will learn to retell the story, extend our vocabulary and infer how the characters are feeling, amongst other activities. Everyday, we will vote for the story we want to hear at the end of the day. We will also take part in group guided reading sessions. In phonics, we will be consolidating our knowledge of phase 2 sounds and practicing reading words, captions and sentences using these sounds and tricky words. We will then move on to phase 3 sounds.

Writing

In phonics, we will be consolidating our phase 2 knowledge by writing words, captions and sentences using these sounds and tricky words. We will then move on to phase 3 sounds. We will use our writing skills to complete literacy activities, our daily writing challenge and we will apply our skills in other areas of the classroom.
