Our theme this term is - People Who Help Us
This term we will be doing lots of exciting and multi-sensory activities with the children and we will be researching all the different dinosaurs.
We will be following the Early Years' Foundation Stage curriculum which includes the following seven areas of learning:-
- Communication and Language
- Physical Development
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Understanding of the World
- Expressive Arts and Design Development
In Understanding of The World, we will be learning all about the world around us. We will be discovering all about our families, religions and cultures. We will be introducing the Wood Work area, where we will look at different materials and will focus on how to construct.
In Literacy, we will be focusing on the story Burglar Bill and non fiction texts about People Who Help us. We will also be sharing traditional tales and the children will be encouraged to take on the role of storybook characters in their play. At Ingrow Primary School we highly encourage you to read with your child at home, it only needs to be for 10 minutes at night and must be FUN!
Our main writing focus this term will be learning to recognise letters by sound and learning to read simple cvc words e.g cat. We will continue to practice writing our first and second names. Some of us will be trying hard to write simple sentences e.g. the cat in the cat.
In Maths we will be learning to recognise numbers to 10, to 20 and learning to order numbers to 10; to 20. We will do this through lots of fun maths games!
We will also be delving into deeper learning in maths through games and problem solving.
In Expressive Arts and Design, we will be exploring different materials and media. We will are going to focus on E Safety in ICT.
In Communication and Language, we will be providing lots of opportunities to promote Speaking and Listening throughout the classroom environment, by providing such stimuli as interesting artifacts and natural materials.
In Squirrel Class we enjoy taking part in PE on a Tuesday Morning and all children will need to bring in a PE kit, we wear black shorts, white t-shirt and black pumps. Could you please make sure your child's clothes are named and in a named bag.
