Our learning journey this half term...
This half term we will be focusing on the question 'Are all minibeasts scary?' The children will have some new classmates in the form of caterpillars which we will observe growing and changing. We will also be finding out about a range of other minibeasts. Some of the stories we will share will include The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Superworm, What the Ladybird Heard ad information books about minibeasts.
We have many opportunities to mark make in all areas of the classroom and outside. We will continue to develop our reading and writing skills through both child initiated and adult led opportunities. This half term the focus is on reading and writing sentences. Maths learning will focus on recognising and ordering numbers 1-20. Finding one more and one less, solving addition and subtraction problems. The children will also be ordering events, naming and describing 2D and 3D shapes, describing position and giving directions.
In RE sessions we will cover the topics of 'Easter' and 'Pentecost and Mission'. In the topic of 'Easter' children will discuss and respond to the story of the resurrection. The focus will also be on the excitement and joy of the Easter season. In the topic of 'Pentecost and Mission' the children will have lots of opportunities to listen to and interact with the story of Pentecost and the role of the disciples. Pentecost is shown as being about the Father, Son and Spirit.
