This half term we will be learning about superheroes and food.
Throughout the half term, we will be learning about different foods and the importance of healthy eating. We will also relate this to learning about healthy lifestyles in general.
During the half term, we will link our learning about food and superheroes to different stories. For the first three weeks, we will be looking at the ‘Supertato’ collection of stories by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet, which focus on both areas of our topic areas. In weeks 4 and 5, we will be learning about the traditional tale, ‘The Gingerbread Man’. In the last full week before the summer, we will be reading the story ‘Cake’ by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet.
We will also be linking our superhero learning to different science experiments. For example, we will look at floating and sinking, magnets and gravity through ‘flying’.
This half term, we will also be preparing for our transition into Year 1. We will get to meet our new class teacher and we will also be building up to a more formal style of learning through whole class activities and breaking up the continuous provision time with whole class learning inputs.
On Monday 19th July, we will be learning about Eid al-Adha, which begins on Monday 19th July, and we will also refer back to
Eid al-Fitr which took place earlier this year.
We will be focusing on writing sentences that can be read by others and by the children to an adult. We will be continuing to write sentences that have some words spelt correctly and/or some that are phonetically plausible. For our reading focus, we will be continuing to apply our phonics skills to reading sentences and we will be continuing to recap our phonics learning so far to embed and master this learning.
In maths, we will be continuing to work with numbers to 20 and with addition and subtraction within 20, using mathematical language associated with addition and subtraction. We will also be solving problems, including doubling, halving and sharing. Using everyday language to talk about different measurements is also an area we will be looking at and using everyday language to talk about the position of objects.
A few reminders:
· Hear them read as often as possible.
· Read lots of stories to them to support their story telling language.
· Practise counting forwards and backwards to and from 20.
· Talk to your child about the food you eat at home and give them opportunities to help you with preparing different meals.
How to help at home:
· Please make sure all school uniform is labelled.
· Ensure your child has appropriate active wear for the warm weather on PE days.
· Bring a water bottle to school everyday.
· Bring a sun hat to school everyday and apply sun-cream before the school day.
