Spring Term 2021

Welcome back after the Christmas break. 

The children had a fantastic Autumn term and all worked so hard. 

We know that they will continue to amaze, achieve and aspire.  

Below you will find out about our topics for the Spring term.

 

Communication and Language

We will be reading a range of books based on Traditional tales. These will include:

Nibbles: The Book Monster by Emma Yartlett

The Great Fairy Tale Disaster by David Conway

Mixed Up Fairy Tales by Hilary Robinson

and many others. 

 

Listen to 'The Great Fairy Tale Disaster' by clicking on the following link

Expressive Arts

Our artist this term is 

William Morris 

He was a British textile designer. 

We will be listening to

Peter and the Wolf

by Sergei Prokofiev

Each character in the story is represented by a different instrument from the orchestra. You can listen to it here:

Peter & The Wolf Disney Story - YouTube

We will also be listening to music by Bach

He was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period

Come and listen to some music in our  Reflection corner. 

You can also reflect on how you feel. You could tell stories like Jesus did.

 

Support at home...

Here are some useful websites if you would like to practise any skills at home.

Literacy

Reading

We will be reading lots of Traditional tales such as Goldilocks, The Three Little Pigs and Little Red Riding Hood.  These books give wonderful opportunities to discuss good and bad characters. You can also discuss what happens at the beginning, middle and end of the stories. Please read books as often as you can at home. 

The following websites give you access to some great online reading books. Please see the email previously sent for information on how to login.

Writing

We will continue to develop our handwriting through tracing, copying and independent writing. We will be writing labels, lists, captions and sentences.

Can you write a list of who is in your family?  Or a list of your friends at school?

Through our daily phonics sessions we will continue to identify the sounds in words and learn the skill of segmenting for spelling using both phase 2 and phase 3 sounds.

 

Here are some great links to support your child with their phonics skills at home:

First Phonics (doorwayonline.org.uk) There are options to make it easier/more difficult. 

Sound Sayer (ictgames.com)

 

We use the phonics mats below to help us find the letters to make words. 

Mathematics

We will continue to work on developing our understanding of numbers.  You can help at home by counting out loud, counting when walking up and down stairs and counting objects wherever possible.  Lots of children love making their own number cards, one set with numbers and one set with a number of objects drawn or stuck on. They are great for ordering and matching games. 

Our new focus will be on addition and subtraction. We will be using lots of practical resources and methods to support this. 

 

Here are some great links to support your child with their number skills at home:

Whack A Mole || Counting in steps of 1, 2, 3....12 (ictgames.com)

The Gingerbread Man Game - Counting, Matching and Ordering game (topmarks.co.uk)

Addition To 10 (topmarks.co.uk)

 

Physical development

We will continue to develop our fine and gross motor skills.

Our amazing outdoor area gives us lots of opportunities to develop our skills.

We will develop our scissor skills and handwriting skills. Please continue to support your child to write their name and other words in the cursive style of handwriting. Tracing, colouring and cutting activities are all great ways to improve fine motor skills.

In our P.E sessions we will be learning to move safely and show awareness of space. 

 

 

Understanding the world

We will be talking about special events and celebrations such as birthdays and Chinese New Year.

We will look closely at similarities, differences, patterns and changes in different materials. Which materials would make a comfy bed for Goldilocks? What type of materials made the best house for the Three Pigs? Why?  How does porridge change when we cook it? 

We will continue to observe seasonal changes.

 The children are doing very well independently using different programs on the interactive board. We will also be learning to use the Code-a-Pillars.
