Communication, Language and Literacy
Poetry will be a theme as we think about animals from our trip to Drusillas, each group will write their own group poem. We will look at the book ‘I Love Animals’ and ‘Dear Zoo’ to generate questions about the animals we see. Throughout the term the children will be encouraged to use describing words, think creatively and explore different types of writing.
The children will then investigate the features of non fiction books before creating their own fact files.
Letter Sounds The ‘Letters and Sounds’ programme continues to be successful as we begin to prepare the children for Year One. The children will be encouraged to continue to use their developing knowledge within their reading and writing.
Role Play Areas The class will help to design and create the vets.
The children will be encouraged to apply their Maths skills as they use our Maths Station and develop the use of their Maths in the environment.. Practical addition and subtraction will continue, including some recording and accurate use of vocabulary. We will revisit pattern and shape. Additionally, we will look at odd and even numbers and continue counting, grouping and sharing in 2s, 5s and 10s.
We will begin the term looking closely at the eggs that are being delivered, we will carefully watch and record any changes.
Following our trip to Drusillas we will be thinking about the animals we have seen through movement, music and sculpture. We will find out facts and create a class display.
During Health and Well Being Week, we will enjoy activities based around keeping healthy and making healthy choices.
