Summer term 1

Out topic this half term will be ‘Does everything grow?’. Our topic will begin with the traditional tale The Little Red Hen. The children will be learning how to retell the story as a group, following a story map that we will create together. Our role play and small world will be focusing on farms and we will be learning about money as we set up a farm shop in the classroom.


Our main focus for writing this half term will be non-fiction based, centred on growing. We will be investigating if everything grows and if they do, what helps them to grow. The half term will end with us celebrating Healthy Schools Week.


This half term we will be having a big push on confident recognition of non-negotiables e.g. recognition of numbers 1-20 and reading and spelling tricky words. The children will be encouraged to spell tricky words correctly within their writing. We appreciate all of your support in helping the children to practise these at home, the children will be rewarded with merits when they practise/read at home – please note this in the home/school diary.

This half term parent drop-in will be Friday 12th May from 9.00am-9.30am. We hope you will be able to join your child in class.
