Our new topic this term is all about Water. We will be doing a lot of investigating and experimenting, especially floating and sinking. We will also be making our own mini boats and testing if they float and how much they can hold before they sink.
We will continue to consolidate our phonics knowledge and use of tricky words in preparation for year 1. We will also focus on story writing with a beginning, middle and end, while always remembering our sentence writing rules (capital letters at the beginning, finger spaces and full stop at the end). In maths we are securing our number knowledge to 20, which includes addition, subtraction and problem solving using doubling, halving and sharing.
We are getting excited about moving onto Year 1. Soon we will meet our new teacher in our new classroom.
Please make sure that children have all weather wear in school and wear sensible shoes that are easily changed independently. Now that the weather is warmer please ensure that your child has a sun hat in school every day and to apply sunscreen in the morning before school.
Wednesday is usually our PE day, however we ask that children have a PE Kit in school every day, just in case schedules change. We still have PE outside so please make sure children have complete PE kits for outdoors as well.
Show and Tell will is on every Wednesdays and it will rotate between the reading groups (details will be provided in the weekly newsletter. We encourage children to bring something related to our topic.
