This half term we are doing ‘Who lives in the woods?’ topic. We have chosen to focus on We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen and books by Julia Donaldson.
We plan to be out in the wooded area as much as possible so please ensure that your child has their outdoor kit in school. (Full waterproofs and wellies)
We will be building dens, exploring the woods, making potions and having a picnic.
The children will be doing story maps of the stories so if they bring one home then please get them to retell the story to you.
Across the curriculum we will be finalising our judgements as to whether the children have met the ‘Early Learning Goals’ or not. These were shared with you at parents evening in February but if you would like more information then please see Mrs Smith. We will report these judgements to you in their end of Foundation Stage Report. If you can do any additional work with your child at home focussing on the following it would really help.
- Recognising numbers to 20, ordering numbers to 20, finding 1 more and 1 less with numbers to 20
- Reading and writing their phase 2 and 3 words
- When they are writing at home encourage them to write down the sounds that they hear
- Talk to your child about what they have done at school each day and which was the best part
- Talk to your child about specific home traditions
Please listen to your child read as often as possible during the week. Reading is a very important life skill and needs to be practised as often as possible. We will continue to change children’s books weekly to encourage re-reading of the books and more talk about the stories. We also encourage you to use the library and Oxford Owl website to access more books with your child.
