Under the Sea

What we are learning about...

This term we are going to be looking at ‘Under the Sea.’ Our literacy focus for this half term will be; ‘The Rainbow Fish,' ‘Commotion in the Ocean’ and 'Jolly Olly octopus'.  These stories offer a great introduction, not only to our theme but also the first stage of phonics learning rhyming words and repetitive phrases.  The children will have the opportunity to explore our Seaside Café. In Maths we will be encouraging the children to recgonise numbers and start counting using fingers, aswell as identifying amounts of objects.
