Welcome back to Summer Term!
What a great start to the term. The children have blossomed and turned into very mature young people, and returned to school eager and ready to learn more.
This term we have a plentiful of new challenges and experiences ahead for the children; with our first one being a trip to Moor Farm on Thursday and Friday. Next week we shall be putting our writing skills to the test as we write about our trip, and we may even have a visitor or two in school!
In Literacy we will be looking at 2 stories over this half term:
Rosie's Walk where we will be learning about positional language, distance and writing instructions.
Oliver's Vegetables when we will look at healthy eating, using time connectives like next and then, as well as tasting some of the more unknown vegetables!
In Maths we will be looking at developing our knowledge and understanding of time, measuring, number bonds to 10 and 20, sharing, more or less and addition.
Hello- we will be back from a lovely break in a few short days and I can't wait for the children to return and start continuing to develop their learning.
Thank you to all of those who have managed to post up their pictures of the half term challenge, my mouth has been watering just looking at the wonderful, healthy food you have been cooking!
Happy New Year to you all!
What a start to 2018 we have had in Foundation with our initial topic looking at Polar; the children really got involved and loved learning facts about polar bears and penguins. We went on to write factfiles about them, used our knowledge in our roleplay and painted some amazing pictures or arctic animals and landscapes.
As we continue through this half term we will be looking at writing more sentences as we re-tell Lost and Found, focussing on up-levelling our language choices e.g. using upset not sad.
In Maths we will be looking at coins, notes and language around money. The children really enjoyed showing their parents how we use some of the Maths No Problem resources and strategies in our Maths work.
This half term started with a roaring fire in the Forest School area which we went to visit. We were very careful, and followed all of the rules. We all found it very exciting and drew some amazing pictures that captured that experience.
Our topic has been all about books written by Julia Donaldson, and we have had such a lovely time exploring the Gruffalo Cave, cooking Gruffalo Crumble in the role play area, playing Pooh Sticks like in Stick Man, and riding around on the bikes, pretending we are zooming around on our broomsticks like the witch in Room on the Broom. We have been using our Thinking Hats to think carefully about the different parts of the stories, and this week we have been using time words like 'First', 'Next', 'Then' and 'After'.
We are now knuckling down to perfect our Christmas Performance :)
Ready to start our new learning journey!!
We can't wait to start our learning journey with our new children today!
We hope you have all had a great Summer and the children are looking forward to staring school.
This half term we will be focusing on the stories about Percy the Park Keeper for the first couple of weeks, learning about friendship and working together.
Later on in the half term we will be learning a variety of traditional tales and will be having a traditional tale trip to Nene Park (date to follow in a letter soon)
