In the first half of the Summer term we will work on the topic "Let's Grow." We will read lots of plant and animal themed books and use writing 'challenges' as a way to encourage the children to write independently. Based on what we know already and what we learn from our reading, we will write about what we observe and what we learn in class over the course of the half term. We will continue to look at the changes in the seasons, noting what is happening as we move from spring to summer. In class we will continue to focus on what makes good listening, good sitting and concentrating hands. Our behaviour motto in EYFS is kind hands, kind feet, kind words. We will talk about caring for others, caring for ourselves and caring for our world. We will have lots of opportunities to talk to each other in small groups and as a whole class. We will continue to talk about how we are feeling and how we express our feelings. We will focus particularly on keeping ourselves safe.
In phonics, the children will be continuing to learn alternative spellings for the letter sounds they already know. We will concentrate on sounding out and blending 'in our heads' and as they become more confident readers, they will begin to recognise more and more words by sight. The children will add more 'tricky words' to their sight vocabulary and practice how to write them. They will use the skills they learn in phonics at school to support their reading at home. They will also use these skills to sound out words to spell in their independent writing. They will be encouraged to spell the tricky words already learned accurately.
In Maths, we will be consolidating the work we have done on the composition of numbers within, and to 10. We will continue to learn about doubles, as well as odd and even numbers and count to 20 and beyond.
Our PE days are on Monday and Thursday.
