Summer Term 1
This term we will be focusing on 'Changes' and 'Dinosaurs'. This is a very exciting term where the children embed skills and begin to make transitions ready for Year 1. The children have lots of exciting activities coming up such as local trips and hands on workshops.
In Literacy, the children will be thinking about the story 'The Hungry Caterpillar.' They will be completing a range of fiction and non fiction activities as we link our literacy work to our understanding of the world when watch our very own caterpillars transform into butterflies!
The children will continue to use talk for writing strategies to support their writing, including story mapping, role play, songs and rhyme.
Later in the term we will be thinking about dinosaurs, using 'Stomp. Stomp Dinosaur' to help the children extend their vocabulary and begin to explore words that help us to describe dinosaurs.
In Maths, we will continue to work on our key number sequencing, understanding the value of numbers and linking these to symbols. The children will continue to sequence and order numbers from 0-20. They will be rapidly recalling numbers and pose their own number questions. In space, shape and measure, the children will be recapping on 2D and 3D shapes. The children will be thinking about how they can identify shapes, thinking about their similarities and differences.
The children will have different themes in the setting which will change every 2-3 weeks the themes this term are;
16th April- 30th April
Changes ( life cycle of a butterfly)
7th May- 21st May
