Term 3

Happy New Year!

This term our topic is Transport.

Each week we will be exploring a different mode or theme of transport:

Week 1: Cars and buses

Week 2: Trains

Week 3: Aeroplanes

Week 4: Boats and ships

Week 5: Emergency Vehicles

Week 6: Road Safety

We will be reading The Train Ride by June Crebbin. Children will get to act out the story, sequence it and pretend to be on a train. Children will also get to learn some new transport Makaton signs. Some children will be mark making, writing letters and some children will be writing simple sentences on different vehicles. Children will have lots of phonics lessons, reading sessions and some children will be reading within the See and Learn programme.

Some children will be learning to indicate 1, making sets of vehicles and others will be learning about 3D shapes and simple addition and subtraction sums.

This term we will be continuing with weekly Outdoor Learning lessons.

The children love these sessions and get to balance on ropes, make mud pies and make muddy pictures! The children will also be learning about Chinese New Year.

 

Our swimming slot continues to be on a Monday morning.
