Miss Robson's Class- 2018-19
A BIG welcome to all parents and carers in Reception!
Due to the children’s continued interests, we will be extending our fairy tale topic this half term.
In literacy our focus story will be Jack and the beanstalk, we will create wanted posters of the Giant and write about what we would like at the top of our beanstalk. We will be completing a daily diary to monitor and record the growth of our plants.
In maths we will ordering and measuring different sized beanstalks and plant pots, counting beans and solving simple addition and subtractions. We will be exploring volume and quantity by filling and emptying plant pots to selected amounts, and measuring and filling the correct amount of water to feed our plants. We will develop our understanding of money by using every day language surrounding money in our role play garden centre.
To enhance our understanding the world we will observe growth and decay by growing our own beans and plants, explore the lifecycle of a seed and explore what happens when plants grow in different areas. We will be creating our own garden centre shop and will work together to redevelop our garden area outside.
We will be exploring how we should be looking after our world, including focusses such as plastic pollution, recycling and caring for living things. Each Wednesday we will be going to forest school, this is an exciting opportunity to develop new skills in a different environment! Please ensure children have a full kit in school including wellies, waterproofs, a long sleeved top and trousers.
This half term we will also be celebrating shrove Tuesday by taking part in pancake races and tasting, Mother’s day by making gifts, learning the Easter story and take part in Easter crafts and we will be dressing up for World Book Day.
