In Newton Class, we are focused on ensuring there is a smooth transition between the EYFS curriculum and the National Curriculum. The classroom environment is organised to encourage focused, independent learning whilst also captivating the children's imaginations.
This term our topic is called ‘Tales from Around the World'. There will be plenty of opportunities to discuss the continents and countries. We will look at Great Britain and all the parts. We will compare a village in China with Potterspury.
In Mathematics, we will recap our knowledge and understanding of number, ordering numbers to 50 and writing them the correct way around, place value, counting 1:1 and addition and subtraction.
Every week, we have a guided reading session and encourage the children to read as much as possible at home. In addition to this a weekly spelling pattern will be given out. The children are encourage to practise the pattern within school and at home. We have daily phonics sessions in Newton Class and phonics is embedded into the environment. Our writing skills are developed through units linked to our main topic.
