Spring 1

  Look out for the weekly newsletters your child will bring home to see what learning we have been doing that week!

 

This half term, our topic is 'Why isn't everybody's home the same?'We will be exploring the different places that people live and comparing these to our own homes. We will be finding out about castles and the people from the past and the present that live in castles. We will be comparing our lives in England to those who live in Africa. We will also be finding out about the celebration of Chinese new year and learning about those who live in China.

 

Britain’s best castles - Medieval Archives

 

In our RWINc sessions we will continue to learn new sounds, whilst consolidating those already taught. We will develop our ability to read and write different words and will use this knowledge outside of RWINc sessions.

 

In our daily Maths sessions, we will explore numbers up to 10, solve problems involving addition and investigate the measurements of height, weight and length.

 

The children love dough disco and we will continue to use this to develop the muscles that we need for drawing, writing and cutting. After dough disco we will practice different fine motor skills each week.

 

In our RE sessions we will be exploring the topics of Local Church, Islam and Eucharist. 

 

The children will continue to have lots of opportunities to apply what they have learnt in our adult led sessions as they use our indoor and outdoor environments.
