What's happening this half term? 




This half term we will be looking at the composition of numbers up to 20. We will be looking at numerals up to 20 and the pattern of the coutning system. We will also be talking about how many tens and how many ones are in numbers. For our learning about shape, we will be looking at composing and decomposing shapes and completing tangrams.  




We will be reading 'Jasper's beanstalk' and lots of non fiction stories about what we can grow. We will then look at the stories 'Superworm' and 'The snail and the Whale' by Julia Donaldson. We will be making our own story map beanstalk, creating character descriptions and speech bubbles and writing our own environment descriptions.
