Summer Term Information
This term we will be exploring the theme of growth and change. This topic will provide the children with a large variety of exciting learning opportunities which will enable them to make progress towards achieving their early learning goals.
First, will be finding out about how to stay healthy and eating a balanced diet through lots of hands on activities and engaging with our fruit and vegetables stall role play area. We will be planting and sowing our own fruit and vegetables linking to our healthy eating theme and also our key story text ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. The children will have lots of opportunities to explore growth and change and apply their maths skills in terms of measuring and recording. As the theme, develops we will be looking at life cycles and mini beasts. This willl include encouraging wildlife into our outdoor classroom with the creation of big habitats.
Throughout the topic they will creating some exciting artwork and creating work which is driven my their own interests and fascinations within the theme.
Full details of the topic are available in the planning underneath.
If your children have any toys or books related to the topic that they would like to show the class, that would be fantastic.
Every day checklist:
Reading book and record
Phonics pencil case
Warmer Weather – All children will need a sun hat (which needs to be labelled with their name) and sun cream which they will need to apply (or applied before school).
Reading – Books will be changed once weekly but at least two books will be given (please ensure reading diaries are completed and sent in). Book bags need to be in school every day, as well as their phonics pencil case, so that we can update the sounds and high frequency words to match your child’s needs.
P.E Kits – The children have P.E on a Monday and Friday with our specialist sports coaches and during this time Mrs Birch and Mrs Turtle will undertake their planning, preparation and assessment work.
Please do not hesitate to come and speak to us if you need any more information or have any questions.
