This week in Otter class we have continued with our topic ‘Let’s go exploring.’ We have been investigating what equipment explorers would need and some famous explorers such as Robert Falcon Scott. In English we have started our independent write based on the text ‘Grandad’s Island’ and in maths we have been looking at multiplication in Year 1 and 2 and the composition of numbers to 10 in Reception. We have also started to have a big focus on reading. Now we have started to embed our new phonics scheme ‘Monster Phonics’ and the children are becoming familiar with the books we want to make sure the children are reading as much as possible. We thoroughly encourage you to read as much as you can at home with your children.
