Phonics 

 

We have daily phonics sessions and pupils are grouped

according to their phonic knowledge.

Below are examples of sounds within Phase 2 and Phase 3 phonics.

 

Phase 2 Fishy Phonics Game

Phase 3 Phonics Frog Game

 

English

During the Spring Term our focus texts will be: Rumble in the Jungle by Giles Andreae, The Wonky Donkey by Craig Smith, The Jolly Postman by Janet & Allan Ahlberg and Fairy Tales for Little Children by Usborne. 

 

                

                                                  

 

We will be using the above texts to create the foundations for our writing. We will have a focus on retelling and performing potery and also writing to inform with letter writing. 

 

 

Maths

 

Each term we aim to cover 3 maths targets:

  • Number and place value 
  • Other - shape or measure 
  • Calculation -  addition/subtraction, multiplication/division and fractions

Science

Our Science is delivered through schemes of work titled Myself (Autumn), My World (Spring) and My Environment (Summer). 

During the Autumn Term, we have had a focus on the human body

and the 3 functions of our skeletons. The 5 senses and also how

humans get the nutrition they need. 


During the Spring Term our focus in Science will be Light & Sound and Electricity. 

 

PSHE 

In PSHE we focus heavily on positive, respectful relationships, likes/dislikes, feelings and emotions and motivations. 

  

 At The Holy Brook School we talk lots about our feelings. Below is an example of our Zones of Regulation. We use this to support children identify which zone they may be in and which emotions go with that.

 

 

The Colour Monster is a fantastic book about colours and how they represent different emotions. This closely links with our Zones of Regulations we use in school to support pupils to recognise how they may be feeling.
