Summer Term 2022

This term the children will be learning about the importance of looking  after plants and how to help them grow. They will develop their exploration and observational skills throughout this theme. We will start off our learning with a senses Spring walk and planting cress seeds. Similarly, the children will develop their own sense of being a class family and  working as a team to help each other learn.

Spring Term 2022

This term we will be sailing the seven seas and take our learning to new places. We will continue to expand on our phonic knowledge and learn about 'reading for pleasure' e.g. how to use pictures in a book and spot key words. From our WOW day we have become a stronger team of shipmates and will continue to develop our team values with a focus on 'understanding others.
