Summer Term 3 

Wow where has the year gone? This is the last term in Foundation and we have lots of exciting learning to do. The children will be at their most confident using and applying the skills taught over the year.

 During the first term of the summer, the children's theme will be 'All at Sea' and in the second part of the term the children will be thinking about 'Summer Travels'. During these themes the children will be thinking about the season, boats, pirates and holidays.  

In Literacy, we will continue to develop our sentence writing skills, applying our phonics to both fiction and non-fiction texts. We will continue to extend sentences, thinking about finger spaces, phonics and letter formation. We will be using the texts 'Pirates Love Underpants' by Claire Freedman and Ben Cort and 'The Singing Mermaid' by Julia Donaldson. During the late part of the summer term, we will using a range of non-fiction texts including travel agent brochures, leaflets and maps.



In mathematics, the children will continue to count using visual support, naming and writing numbers. They will begin to link number shapes, thinking about quantities and amounts.




The children will have different themes in the setting which will change every 2-3 weeks the themes this term are;
