What are we learning about this half term?

In Phonics, we are developing our reading skills through blending and segmenting words and sounds. 

In PHSE, we are developing our understanding of our what helps us stay healthy. We will be exploring what we can do to keep healthy in our everyday lives.

In Geography, we will be building upon our understanding of the local area (Shipley ) and finding out about what makes it such an incredible and interesting place to live. We will be developing our map and field skills in this topic.
