Welcome back! We hope that you have all had a fantastic Easter holiday. This half-term, our topic will be Stories. Children will complete lots of work linked to Oliver's Vegetables, Jasper's Beanstalk, The Three Little Pigs and Jack and the Beanstalk - we will be drawing story maps and starting to sequence and retell stories in our own words. We will continue to focus upon measuring objects (length, height , capacity, weight) in Maths and calculating addition and subtraction number sentences. We will consolidate knowledge of 1 more/1 less and begin to investigate doubling, halving and sharing. Reception children will continue to study Phase 3 sounds during Phonics (Year 1 children are doing a great job at working their way through Phase 5 sounds!) explore their local area in Geography and investigate plants, trees, materials and weather patterns in Science. We will look at the importance of eating healthily and undertaking exercise, explore the sounds of different musical instruments and delve into the past studying The Great Fire of London. As the weather improves, we are really looking forward to spending much more time in our fabulous Outdoor Area, exploring our surroundings and making lots of mess! We are certainly expecting a busy few weeks!
If you ever have any questions or concerns about your child then please don't hesitate to come and see either myself (Mrs Hatton) or Miss Webster.
