Welcome back to a brand new term. We hope you all enjoyed a restful and chilled-out Easter break. We cannot wait to get going with all the learning and fun we have planned for this Summer term. Plus, we have our new outdoor classroom to use. The children were very excited to use this on their first day back. Let's hope we have a full term without any interruptions.
Below is just a taster of what's to come:
We will be looking at 'Under the sea with SHARKS', the beach and then pirates. The children will be making sea creatures, describing underwater scenes, rock pools, exploring treasure maps and making pirate accessories. After that, we plan to look at the season Summer and all the beautiful things in nature and exciting activities we can do in this season. Using books, real life video clips and the children's own experience to enhance the above topics.
The children will be practising addition and subtraction using resources and counting on and back in their heads. Also, we will be using every day problems to practise the skill. Halving, sharing and doubling will be another new concept for the children to grasp and odd and even numbers too. We will use the 'beebots' to help the children learn about left, right, forwards and backwards.
Using the themes of creatures, we will be imitating sea creatures of the sea and on land. With the weather hopefully being drier, we will get the balance bikes out for the children to balance and practise on a two wheeled bike.
As always the above is always a temporary plan. In early years, we try to incorporate the children's current interests or up-to date happenings of the world e.g Olympics, weddings etc, to make these experiences more meaningful to them.
The children's experiences will be either recorded on Tapestry or in their red learning journal . Please continue to post 'wow' moments from home on Tapestry too. We love finding out and sharing with the rest of the class, what the little ones do at home.
If you need to speak to us, please do not hesitate to email or catch us at the beginning or end of school . We always have an 'open door' policy.
Thank you for continuing support. We are very blessed with such supportive families .
