What came first?
We hope you have all had a restful and yet enjoyable half term.
This term we will be learning about lifecycles and thinking about how animals grow and change.
We will be learning about the lifecycle of a hen, butterfly and ladybird. In order for the children to gain a greater concept of animal lifecycles what better way than witnessing the change at first hand. We are lucky enough to be receiving a few surprise visitors over the half term.
Forest Schools: this half term Class 1 will have this amazing opportunity. This is something which all children will get the chance to partake in. It will give the children a ‘hands-on’ experience of a woodland area with fun filled activities as well.
Forest school sessions for Class 1 will take place on a Tuesday.
Our celebration this half term will be Easter where we will learn about why we celebrate Easter and the different activities we could do to celebrate this such as; an Easter egg hunt!
We will be focusing on writing simple words and sentences. We will be writing stories using a story map as well as writing captions for pictures about life cycles.
During our Maths sessions we will be focusing on time and when we do different things in a day, ordering objects by length, recognising and writing numbers to 20 and working on addition problems
A few Reminders:
· Please make sure all school uniform is labelled
· Ensure your child has a tracksuit for PE—if it is dry they will be going outside.
How to help at home:
· Hear them read as often as possible
· Read lots of stories to them to support their story telling language
· Ask your child questions about stories they have read
· Talk about animals and how to care for them
· Go on walks with your child and talk about the world around them
