Spring Term


In Literacy, we will be taking part in daily phonics sessions. We will be reading a variety of books about journeys and transport. We shall be reading many titles such as:

“The Naughty Bus”

Follow this toy bus on his journey, sometimes he Is very excited and sometimes makes a mess on his adventures.

“Whatever next” by Jill Murphy

The moon and back before bathtime? Whatever next! Join Baby Bear as he finds a rocket, makes friends with an owl and has a picnic on the moon! A beautiful story of innocence and imagination.

“The Train Ride” by June Crebbin

A little girl and her mother board the train in town and set off on a journey through the countryside. As they travel, the girl looks out of the window, asking "What shall I see? What shall I see?" And what does she see? Sheep, cows, horses and much more!

“Mr grumpy’s outing”

One day Mr Gumpy decides to take a trip along the river in his boat. But the children, the rabbit, the cat, the pig and lots more friends decide to join him. Everyone's having a lovely time until the animals start kicking, bleating, hopping and flapping and the boat starts to rock. What will happen...?


In Numeracy we are continuing to recite numbers to beyond 10. We are continuing to develop skills to count using one to one correspondence. Encourage your child to count things around the house and outside when getting fresh air.

We will be looking at subtraction and different methods used to work our subtraction number sentences.

We will look at different forms for measurement height and weight. We are going to build our mathematical language to describe quantity size and patterns.

Cross Curricular

We are going to be learning about different modes of transport, we will be looking at vehicles which travel through the sky, on land and water. We are going to explore junk modelling and paper Mache.

Phase 1 phonics (Nursery and Reception)

This develops listening skills and awareness of sounds within the environment.  Through this vocabulary is developed as the children learn to distinguish and talk about the differences between sounds they hear.  Throughout this stage children encouraged to listen to:

  • Environmental sounds
  • Instrumental sounds
  • Body percussion
  • Rhythm and rhyme
  • Alliteration
  • Voice sounds
  • Oral blending and segmenting

Phase 2 phonics (Nursery and Reception)

In phase two children learn 19 letters of the alphabet and its corresponding sound.  They learn to blend and segment sounds.  During this stage the begin to make and read simple words and sentences.

Phase 3 phonics (Reception)

In Phase 3, we will begin to explore twenty-five new graphemes one at a time. Letters and sounds typically follows this order: Set 6: j, v, w, x Set 7: y, z, zz, qu. Consonant digraphs: ch, sh, th, ng. Vowel digraphs and trigraphs: ai, ee, igh, oa, oo, ar, or, ur, ow, oi, ear, air, ure, er. During Phase 3, children will also learn the letter names and continue to consolidate the sounds learnt in Phase 2.
