Letter and 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.
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.
The term will begin with activities, including ICT, construction and design based on the seaside. Sun safety and beach safety will be also be discussed.
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.
Our ‘One World’ topic will end the term, looking at the lives of others. The children will have the opportunity to explore world dances, music, food, flags, cooking and art. The culture of others will be compared to that of our own. We will have several visitors into the classroom and will be using the internet to discover facts about how children live around the world.
