Happy New Year and welcome back to Term 4.

This term the children will be continuing the topic of Traditional Tales.

We will be reading the books Goldilocks and the Three Bears, The Three Little Pigs, The Gingerbread Man and the Once Upon a Time.

We will also learn:

  • how to count up to 20 objects
  • how to find 1 more and 1 less
  • how to add and subtract using numbers to 10.
  • how to describe 2D & 3D shapes in our environment
  • to talk about a shape’s properties.
  • how to order objects by weight, size and height
  • the value of coins
  • about different types of bears, what they eat, where they live and what they look like

If your child has any books or toys they would like to bring in relating to these books we would love to see them.
