Summer: We are learning....
Under the sea
Pirates and Pirate Princesses
During the first half term our topic will be ‘Under the sea’, we will learn about different sea creatures and where they live. We will use the books and research to create a sea creature fact book, writing about different characters from the books. In maths, we will be working hard to learn our number bonds to 10 and be able to double and halve.
Class assembly will be on Wednesday 22nd May. Look forward to seeing you there!
During the 2nd half term, our theme will be Pirates/Pirate Princesses. We will create pirate maps, treasure, pirate hats and read pirate stories. To complete this topic we will also have a pirate day, children can come to school dressed as a pirate and we will go in search of pirate treasure on the school field!

Spring: We are learning...
Stories by Julia Donaldson
Chinese New Year
In the first part of the term, we will be learning about different Stories by Julia Donaldson. We will create lots of art work, take part in role play, write stories and do lots of maths activities using her stories as a starting point.
We will take part in Chinese New Year celebrations and try Chinese food.
After half-term, we will be learning about Space. We will read Space stories, make space rockets. This topic will finish with a visit to Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre, where children will have the opportunity to enter an inflatable Planetarium.
We will continue to look at the changing seasons, so far we have observed changes from Autumn to Winter.
Please continue to write in the children's planners when you have read at home and ensure Word Box/Tricky word cards are in the planners every day.
Autumn: We are learning...
All about me
Celebrations and Festivals
In the first part of the term, Class R will be learning about families, how we grow, where we live, likes and dislikes. We will also be reading some Traditional Tales too. We will learn through play and group activities with an adult.
Also we will be getting to know each other, learning the school routines and making lots of friends.
Later in the term, we will learn about the changing season and what happens. We will then look at different festivals and celebrations during our own build up to Christmas!
Our outdoor area consists of a construction site, role-play area, water/sand and mark making. We use it as an outdoor learning classroom to extend our knowledge and skills.
Children need to bring their planners and named water bottle to school everyday. If you wish, children can bring a healthy snack to have during afternoon playtime.
Please make sure that all of your child's school uniform and PE kit is labelled with their name and they know where to find the name label on their clothes.
