Mrs Duff and Mrs Chaplin have provided the following learning update:
The children all came back refreshed after their Easter break and were fully engaged in our new topic ‘Growth.’ We have so many budding gardeners! We are so pleased to have an abundance of mint, strawberry, tomato and basil plants to plant in our very own vegetable patch in the outside classroom. We are looking forward to nurturing the plants, watching them grow and cooking with them later in the term.
On our learning launch afternoon, the children planted their own bean and sunflower seeds at school. I hope that they will be a success and the children will be able to take them home soon. The children have enjoyed learning about what plants need to grow and listening to the story Jasper’s Beanstalk.
We will be reading texts that focus on plant, animal and our own growth as individuals. The children will be reflecting upon what they could do as a baby and what they can do now. We will also be talking about aspirations and dreams. The children have been using their phonic knowledge to write for different purposes such as instructions, retelling of the story and information. In Maths, the children are learning their numbers to 20. They are practicing to recognise and match the quantity to numeral.
We are practicing our dribbling skills in our outside PE lessons. It is so nice to have a bit of sun and do PE on the field!
