Dear Parents and Carers,


This term our topic is ‘Who lives in a rock pool?’

Within the prime areas of learning (Communication and language, Physical development and Personal, Social and Emotional Development) we shall be focusing on speaking, fine and gross motor skills and keeping our environment tidy.

Literacy: In Literacy we will be focusing on applying our phonics knowledge to our reading and writing. We will be writing postcards and fact files about what we have learnt about rockpools.

Maths: This term we will be focusing on addition, subtraction, shapes and capacity.

Understanding the World: We shall be using our senses to describe things we may find on the beach, identifying shells and looking at food chains.

Expressive arts and design: We will be decorating seashells and creating art from things we might find at the seaside.

Role play: Our role play area is an ice cream shop. This will enable the children to use money, write orders, create scenarios and use their language skills to talk to customers.

RE: Our RE topic this term is ‘Where do we belong?’. This will allow the children to explore what they belong to and also look at different religions.

PE: We will be focusing on throwing, catching, running and jumping. PE day will be a Wednesday. Please ensure your child has a labelled PE kit in school.

Homework: Please continue to complete the work set in your homework books at least once a week.

Reading: Please read at least three times a week with your child.

Thank you in advance for your support,

Miss Wilkins
