Well we enter the final half term of this academic year...and what a year it has been! We have had such a fun year watching your amazing little ones grow and develop. Thank you for all your support this year.

We hope your pea plants are still alive and continue to grow. If you have the space why not plant it in your garden at home and enjoy your own peas later on in the year.

Our learning kicks of by visiting Sealife Centre to gain an understanding into the underwater world. Hopefully this provide inspiration for our writing and develop our understanding of the world.

This is a very busy term where we consolidate all our learning before the long summer break. We will be visiting our new classes and will begin the transition of the new children due to join us in September.

Please continue to share what your child has been up too at home as it really builds a whole picture of your child. We know you are going to cherish your child's learning journal when they bring them home at summer.

In Literacy, we will be reading Whale's Song and various other texts linked to the sea. We will be exploring some non-fiction units too, including writing some under the sea poems.

We will continue teaching a daily phonics lesson, the children are doing phenomenally well and are applying their phonics to write sentences! We love to listen to and join in with the phonics tricky words song. Have a listen at home- click on the link below.

Please can you ensure that you are reading on a weekly basis with your child as this allows the children to consolidate what they have been learning in school and in turn make amazing progress. Thank you to those who already do so.

We are continuing to develop our fine motor skills with our daily handwriting practice and there are lots of opportunities in provision to enhance our control.

Our Maths learning will continue consolidate our understanding throughout teh year. We will continue to reinforce our number learning and strengthen our understanding of numbers up to 20 and beyond. This week we are focussing if weight and using language such as 'heavier and lighter' and 'heaviest and lightest' to compare objects.

Continue to play maths games at home - I know we will be playing lots of Maths games and songs to help us learn. We can also spot Maths everywhere in our environment, it is important that your child knows the names of simple shapes.

 

In R.E. this term’s focus is on Prayer. We have already learnt about what prayer is. Some children have been practicing their own meditation in our outside areas. We will be learning about how to prayer and prayer in other faiths. We also lok forward to visiting St Peter's Church on our half termly visit.

Exciting things that will be happening this term will be sports day, home visits for new our new intake, Class Photos, St Peter's feast day celebrations, end of year reports and we look forward to sharing out learning with you in our class assemblies. Please check the school calendar or the school spider app for dates.

P.E. will be on a Monday and a Friday, so please ensure your child has their kit in school at all times. Your child must dress themselves for school, this helps their physical development and helps them when changing for P.E. Also, can we remind you that ALL belongings need your child's name in. This will help any lost items be returned to you as soon as possible.

Thank you for your support,

Mrs Fletcher and Miss Milburn

 

 

Here are some little ideas how you can support your child's learning at home:

  • Reinforce the sounds covered each day in class.
  • Practise name writing. Please make sure your child uses lower case letters except for their initial letter.
  • Share reading books, discussing plots, characters, and their feelings, as well as simply decoding the text.
  • Draw your child’s attention to numbers in their environment e.g. telephones, door numbers, car number plates etc. Count things around the home. How many windows do we have etc?
  • Encourage your child to dress themselves for school and take their uniform off at the end of the day to promote independence.
