Summer 2


This term we will be enjoying texts all about adventure and journeys as we are preparing for our next adventure into Year 1!

We will begin this term learning all about D-Day as we remember those who fought for us as we mark the 80th anniversary.  The children will be thinking about bravery linked to the soldiers and recalling times they were brave!


  We will also be undertaking a local study along with the rest of the school. We will be looking at our schools location and the history of our school. We will be looking at the new and old parts of our school and photos from  the past and present for children to comment upon. We will also be creating a messy map of our school and its grounds!    


As we move through our final term together we will be reading a text of hope and resilience called 'How to catch a star' children will be thinking of their own ideas and instruction and then writing their own goals for their next adventure into year 1!


This term we will also be spending time outdoors in our newly improved outdoor area, we will be taking care of our plants we have grown from seed which we are very proud of! We have strawberries, tomatoes and sunflowers! We can't wait to taste our homegrown delights!





In RE this term we will be focusing on 'Our Beautiful World' we will be discussing creation and looking at the Christian creation story . Then we will be looking at the Islamic creation story and making comparisons between the two.





In Foundation we will be carrying on with our  daily phonics lessons using 'Read, Write, Inc'. We will also use 'hold a sentence' sessions to help build the children's phonic knowledge and writing skills. 



In Maths we will be doing short,  sessions of practical maths. We follow the White Rose Maths Curriculum and enhance it using Master the Curriculum to plan engaging and hands on sessions for all. Our maths lessons include high quality vocabulary and help our children to think like mathematically and challenge them where needed. The children then move into the provision where they are engaged in exciting and challenging maths activities in the provision both indoor and outdoor.
