What are we learning about?

This half term our topic is ‘Growing.’ 

We are learning about different things that grow and we will be growing our own beans, cress and sunflowers! We will be tasting fruits and vegetables and making close observations of our plants as they grow. Each week we will be focusing on a book that relates to growing such as Jack and the Beanstalk, The Enormous Turnip and Oliver's Vegetables.

 

 

 

Our medium term plan is available here

To further encourage our children to develop a love of reading we have adapted our family sharing time. We welcome parents to stay for the first 10 minutes of each session and will put out a selection of reading books on a Tuesday and Thursday that we would like our parents to share with their children.  On Monday, Wednesday and Friday we will have our name writing cards out as usual. 

We will be continuing with our library service this term where we will let your child choose a book to bring home for the week to enjoy with you. Books will be swapped on a Thursday so we ask that on a Thursday your child puts their library book in the box in the cloakroom ready to be swapped.
