Autumn 1

Our Topic this half term is Me, Myself and I and our focus concept is Friendship.

As well as settling into a new school and routine, we will get to know new friends and teachers. We will think about who we are and what makes each of us unique. Some key questions we will talk about over the next six weeks are:

Who am I? What makes me special? What is a friend? What makes a good friend? Is it easy to be friendly all of the time?


Stories that we will read this half term are First Day at Bug School, Owl Babies, Funny Bones, Three Little Pigs, Goldilocks and the Three Bears

These are the phrases that the children are taught at school to help them to form their letters correctly.


However, please note that we do teach pre-cursive letter formation so therefore you will need to slightly adapt the phrases by adding in 'whoosh in' at the beginning of each phrase. 


You can also download the letter strip below as well as the pre-cursive alphabet for your children to trace.
