Spring Term 1 2020
Welcome to Spring 1
Topic: Tell Me A Tale
Our topic this term is 'Tell Me A Tale'. We will be looking at classic children's picture books such as Elmer, The Tiger Who Came to Tea, The Gruffalo, Oi Frog and Penguins in the Fridge. We will be learning how to sequence and story map these books, so that we can begin to think about how we write our own stories. We will also be developing our other areas of learning based on these stories. We are also excited that The Pied Piper Theatre Company are returning and this term are performing 'Star in a Jar' and looking at themes connected with friendship.
We are starting tennis on a Monday afternoon, so PE kits will need to come to school on a Monday. We are continuing with our PE sessions on a Thursday morning, please come to school wearing your PE kit.
We will be continue to go to Forest School on a Tuesday and Friday afternoon. It is important that wellingtons are in school for the term and coats are in school on these days.
The Curriculum Leaflet below tells you what we will be covering this term.
WOW Moments And Observations
We enjoy sharing the children’s achievements and successes both from within school and at home. We are regularly observing the children and finding out what they are making progress with and assessing which areas of the curriculum they need further support with. We record these observations in each child’s individual pupil learning journals. To support us with making accurate assessments of your children and to enable us to share successes please remember to complete our ‘WOW’ slips. These will be sent home on a regular basis.
Finally, please do not hesitate to see a member of the Early Years Team if you have any concerns about your child. Good communication links between home and school are imperative to secure children’s happiness and progress.
