Welcome back, I hope you have all had a lovely Easter and feel refreshed and ready for the Summer term, our final term. We have lots to look forward to in the Summer term including the arrival of chick eggs! There are some exciting events scheduled so please look out for further details in the school newsletter, on class dojo and in letters sent home.
Our theme is What's in the mystery egg? with a focus on new life.
This half term we are continuing to develop our personal, social and emotional skills, focusing on turn taking and managing feelings and behaviours in a range of ways.
Our new songs for this half term include: Goldilocks and The Three Bears, The Pancake Song, Underground Vegetables, Old MacDonald Had a Farm, Jumping Up and Down on a Track and Five Little Chicks.
For Understanding the World, we will find out about a range of animals and how they grow and change, finding out about floating and sinking, matching animals to their babies, finding out where animals live and what they eat, grouping animals by criteria e.g. amount of legs and much more!
In our Literacy we will be using rhyming, topic related, and children's favourite stories to build upon language. We will also continue reading some traditional stories and learn to retell them orally using our story shelves. In addition to this we will be finding out that information is relayed in the form of print as we find out about new life at the farm. This will be followed up using information texts about farm animals.
In numeracy we will be focusing on recognising numbers to 10 and beyond, encouraging children to count objects accurately and order the numbers of objects and match to the numeral. We will be combining 2 groups of objects and finding the total, organising animals according to size, matching animal heads to their bodies, counting and classifying animals, estimating and counting how many eggs can fit into a nest and recognising one more or one less.
