This half term in Foundation.....
 
 
Our learning this half term focuses on the theme. We're going on a bug hunt....' We will explore a different question each week, all centred around the theme of 'minibeasts'. We will explore caterpillars and their lifecycles. We will look at what they eat and how they grow and change. We will then look at what we need to do to keep our bodies healthy. During this topic, we will look for books and talk about their habitats. We will also think about our own lives and where we live. The children will use lots of non fiction books during this topic to find out information.  
 
In our Maths sessions we will continue to explore numbers up to 10 as well as counting beyond 10. We will explore pattern in number including- doubling, halving and sharing, odd and even numbers. In RWINC the children continue to learn and review sounds in order to read and write words. Both in and out of these sessions we will focus on more 'red' words and creating simple sentences using capital letters and full stops. After group and whole class inputs the children will have lots of opportunities to apply the skills they have learnt using the environment both indoors and outside.
 
In our RE sessions we will focus on the topics of Islam, Penetecost and Judaism.
