In English our focus will be Fairytales and non-fiction texts on animals; segmenting multisyllabic words for reading and writing; understanding and using sentences with full stops and capital letters; capitalisation for names and the I pronoun; knowing what nouns are and about adding adjectives to add detail.
In Maths we will be focusing on addition and subtraction within 20. We will be covering addition and subtraction as crossing out, by using number bonds and by counting back. We will then use this work to make subtraction stories and to solve picture problems. We will revise the addition work completed so far and then we will be learning about position and direction. There will be further work on counting, comparing and ordering but now numbers to 20.
