Spring Term 2 

This is a very exciting term as we begin to see the children use and apply the new skills they have learnt since joining Foundation. As the children become more independent, they will begin to seek opportunities in the environment to stretch and develop their own learning. This term we will be thinking about healthy life styles with our topic 'Our Amazing Bodies', being amazing with 'Superheroes' and in the final part of the term we will be thinking about life, growth and change. 



In Literacy, we will continue to develop our sentence writing skills. applying our phonics to both fiction and non-fiction texts. We will be writing labels during 'Our Amazing Bodies' topic and focusing on the story of 'Superted' during our 'Superhero' topic. During the late part of the spring term, we will use the story of 'The Hungry Caterpillar' to support our understanding of growing and changing.



In mathematics, the children will begin 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;
