This term our learning and activities will be inspired by our learning enhancement theme 'Mad About Minibeasts'. We will be learning about different creatures in our local environment, we will be using stories, poetry and non-fiction books to help us, and Eric Carle will be our author focus for this term too. We will be planning and developing our vegetable garden and having our own baby chicks to look after too! We will also be thinking about how we can take care of our world better and vote for our class Eco-Ambassadors.
We continue to work on our phonics skills, becoming more confident at reading and writing words and sentences independently during our daily phonics sessions with Fred the Frog, guided writing sessions and during 'Fantastics Book Talk'. We will also be developing our handwriting and pre-cursive letter shapes using the Letter-join handwriting scheme. We will continue to work on developing our number recognition, counting and problem solving skills during our daily maths sessions and we continue to teach through the 'Mastering Numbers' programme . There will be lots of opportunities for the children to explore, investigate and create, everyday there will opportunities to use our outside spaces and there will be a weekly Forest School session too. Developing collaboration and resilience powers are going to be our Building Learning Power focus.
We are also preparing for Stories4Schools Book Launch event when you will be able share our published stories and buy your own copy of our book. More details to follow.
Children will need to come to school in PE kits on Tuesdays and Forest School clothes on Thursdays please.
