We will also write reviews at the end of term saying what we liked and what we would like to change.


In Maths we will be counting, ordering and writing numbers up to 20, completing simple calculations to find out one more and less, creating different types of graphs after collecting data and recognising, ordering and describing money and shapes.


This term we will be researching different types of materials and seeing which ones are best when making a toy. We will research by looking at pictures on the internet and examining toys within the class.


This term we will be thinking about movement and travelling on both apparatus and mats. We shall also be making up our own performances by including different ways of moving.
