Literacy: We start this half term with a poetry unit based around 'A Squash and a Squeeze' by Julia Donaldson learning about rhyming and developing our vocabulary. The rest of the half term will be using 'The Squeaky Story'. Check out our text map below and see if you can retell the whole story. During this unit we will focus on finger spaces, full stops and exclamation marks.
