My favourite subject is mathematics. I love working with numbers.
I enjoy reading books and always make sure I've bought a new book to read for my holidays. When I was younger, I read the Harry Potter books over and over again.
I love travelling. My favourite country to visit is Germany!
This Half Term
This term our project focus is 'How have toys changed over time'. We are focusing on different periods of time e.g. Victorian period, 20th Century and now. The children will have the opportunity to explore toys from all of these times. We will also be making our own moving toy in Autumn Two. This will link to our science topic on materials.
In art we will be focusing on drawing skills during the Autumn Term. We will be completing sketches of different toys.
In English we are focusing on Finding Tales. Our focus text is Jack and the Beanstalk.
In maths the children will be focusing on place value and addition. You could support your child at home by looking at adding and subtracting 10 from a number.
We are close to the end of level 5 in phonics and will be continuing to learn about the alphabetic code for the next few weeks.
