This week the story is 'The Elves and the Shoemaker'. We are continuing to discuss traditional stories, the way they are structured, the language used in them, the characters and the setting. Some of the children are starting to use the language of traditional tales when they are writing their own stories which is excellent.
In maths we are concentrating on one more and one less. We will be using a numberline to help the children to visualise this concept and using objects so that they can physically add and subtract one. We are also going to be revising teen numbers and putting them in order.
We will be continuing with phonics and we will introduce more tricky words. The tricky words we have introduced so far are 'I', 'go', 'to' and 'the'.
