Guided Reading

This term the children will begin Guided Reading in addition to reading their individual reading books. Each week the children will read a text as part of a small group to their teacher. They will then answer comprehension questions in relation to the text. 


Within Maths our weekly focus will be:  

Using ordinal numbers ie 1st, 2nd, 3rd...

Saying the number that is one less than another number.

Subtraction using counting objects.

Representation and ordering of numbers to 20.

Combining groups – counting in twos

Sharing amounts into equal groups.

Doubling amounts.


Within our topic sessions we will cover different aspects of the curriculum linked to our theme and focus texts. For example, we will make box model rockets, paper aeroplanes and mosaic balloons.  We will also explore cities, staying healthy and move onto learning about life-cycles and Easter within the second half of the spring term.

So jump on board and enjoy the ride from January through to April within F2SB!
