In the first half of the Summer term we will work on the topic "Growth and Change." We will read lots of growing themed books and use writing 'challenges' as a way to encourage the children to write independently. We will learn about planting and caring for seedlings and plants. We will also learn about the life cycles of some plants, birds, mammals and insects. In class we will continue to focus on what makes good listening, good sitting and concentrating hands. Our behaviour motto in EYFS is kind hands, kind feet, kind words. We will talk about caring for others, caring for ourselves and caring for our world. We will have lots of opportunities to talk to each other in small groups and as a whole class. We will continue to talk about how we are feeling and how we express our feelings.
In phonics, the children will continue to learn alternative ways to spell the same sound and expand the number of 'tricky words' they can read. They will use the skills they learn in phonics at school to support their reading at home. They will also use these skills to sound out words to spell them in their independent writing.
Our PE days are on Monday and Thursday. Please ask children to leave their P.E. kits in a named bag in their locker.
