Through this book we will develop our understanding of punctuation, spelling and phonics. Firstly, we will create a setting description telling where Beegu writes a letter home telling her parents where she has landed. We will develop our vocabulary through describing this strange planet and selecting powerful adjectives.  Then we use our talk for writing to retell the story and describe Beegu.

The children will continue to develop their reading and comprehension in RWI phonics and guided Reading lessons.

In Maths we will look at counting forwards and backwards to 50, recognising and writing these numbers. We will be finding one more and one less and also comparing numbers. We will look at addition (+) and subtraction (-) and various ways of working out the answers by using methods demonstrated in class. Later in the term we practice counting in 2s, 5 and 10s.

Throughout our Maths learning we will explore with a range of apparatus such as Numicon, tens frames, part-whole model,  blocks and counters to enable us to really understand the concepts being taught.
