Spring 2019

Our topic for the 1st half term is:

'Happily Ever After' 

 

Our topic, 'Happily Ever After' focuses on traditional tales and each week the Jolly Postman will deliver a letter and some clues to help us discover the traditional tale that we will be learning about that week. We will meet many fairy tale characters including: Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Jack and the Giant, Little Red Riding Hood, the Big, Bad Wolf, the Gingerbread Man and of course Cinderella.

Throughout this topic, the children will continue to develop their phonic skills by writing letters, posters, instructions and invitations. These will be proudly displayed all around our classrooms. In our number fun time, we will be counting up to and beyond 10, measuring our feet and adding two numbers together, recording in a number sentence. We will also be getting creative and using a range of materials and resources to make treasure for the Giant, leaves for the beanstalk, a quilt for Red Riding Hood’s Grandma, a new outfit for the Gingerbread Man and a magic wishing wand just like the Fairy Godmother.

Our final parcel from the Jolly Postman, will be a clue to a very special event, which the children will be attending and preparing for to end our topic with a fabulous finish!

 

 

 

 

 

Our topic for the 2nd half term is:

'Planes, Trains and Automobiles' 

 

We are jetting off on an adventure to find out all about different forms of transport!  We will get off to a flying start with our exciting visit to the Bournemouth Aviation Museum, where the children will be able to experience first hand a range of vehicles, old and new.  To develop our physical skills, we will use a range of equipment to build and investigate boats and trains, build ramps and explore forces.  We will learn songs about transport and read a range of stories and non-fiction texts linked to vehicles.  Through our number fun, we will be doubling, halving and sharing, making pictograms and graphs.  We will be getting creative and printing patterns using transport shapes, creating collage pictures of vehicles and building 3D models!
