    A huge thank you to everyone who took part in our latest Stay & Play session - we all love having the chance to show off everything that we’ve been learning about this term!

  • Butterflies
    We have been so excited to be lucky enough to hatch our own butterflies! We have loved watching them turn from an egg, to a chrysalis to a beautiful butterfly, and went into the woods once ours had all hatched to release them. Some of us were even lucky enough to get to hold them!

  • Ark Farm Visit
    On Tuesday 21st March we were so lucky to have Ark Farm come in and visit us. They set their travelling farm up on the school field, with a donkey, sheep, pigs, goats, ducks, chickens and a dog all happily sharing the same enclosure - and we absolutely loved getting to meet, stroke and learn about all these friendly animals, as you can see from the pictures below...

  • World Book Day
    We loved getting into costume for this year's World Book Day, dressing-up as our favourite characters and inviting our families to join us for a day of book-sharing and reading activities.

  • The Tiger Who Came To Tea
    We have had lots of fun this half-term with our story The Tiger Who Came To Tea. We received a letter inviting us to a tea party, and then created story maps, orally retold the story and innovated upon it. We have absolutely loved inventing our own stories and have many different animals come to tea such as monkeys, dinosaurs and ponies!

  • Our Tea Party!
    We had a fantastic time at our tea party. We received a surprise letter from Sophie and when we got to the hall we saw that the tables had been set up! We tried milky tea, buns, Victoria sponge cake and cucumber sandwiches. We loved every moment, and it really inspired us to talk and write about the story.

What we've learnt about this term:x

  • Beanstalks!
    We have loved learning about plants this half-term, planting seeds, looking after the Early Years garden and watching how living things change as they grow - all of which has linked in brilliantly with our class stories, with Nursery having learnt the tale of Jasper’s Bearnstalk and Reception using Jack and the Beanstalk as their inspiration. This term, we have also started to take part in weekly Yoga sessions, led by our expert coach - and, as you can hopefully see from the pictures below, we’re really enjoying developing our core strength, balance and co-ordination.

Our Summer Term Topic:
Jasper's Beanstalk
x

Communication & Language:
We will be encouraged to speak in longer sentences throughout the day, making sure that we use the right tense (past, present or future) and sensible vocabulary. Through lots of class and small group talk, we will be supported in becoming more confident speakers, and also will work to improve our listening skills.

We will be asked to explain why we are choosing to do particular things and will be supported in using words such as and, because and so to extend our sentences, link ideas and explain our thinking.

Literacy:
Our class book for the next half-term will be Jasper’s Beanstalk. We will begin by learning the text by heart, supported by actions - so make sure you ask us to tell it to you at home! We will be drawing story maps based on the text, then adapting these to create our own stories, with adults scribing our ideas We will continue to share stories and work on our phonics, building up the range of sounds that we know.

Maths:
In mathematics we will be securing and extending our counting skills, aiming to make it all the way to 20 when working practically, counting aloud or singing counting songs. We will be learning to recognise the numbers 1-20 when they are written down, too. You can help us at home by counting with us every day and looking for the numbers and shapes all around us. We will also be learning to recognise and name different 2d and 3d shapes in the world around us - and again, you could help by challenging us to find as many triangles, squares or circles as possible on the way to school!

Personal, Social & Emotional Learning
We will be focussing on being more independent next term, helping us to get ready for the move up to Reception. We will be thinking about putting things back where they come from, dressing and undressing and changing shoes on our own. We will also play lots of circle time games to help us to talk about our emotions, too.

Understanding the World
Next half-term, we will be learning about the way that plants grow and change over time. We will be doing lots of digging and planting, helping to take care of the Early Years garden and thinking about what we can do to help plants to grow well. We will also be starting to take our class bear home every week, so that he can take part in some of our special days, and give us a chance to share those events (and perhaps a few photos) with the rest of the class when we get back to school.
