Summer 1 Overview
We started our new half term by looking at People Who Help Us. We thought about paramedics, the fire service, nurses and the school lollipop lady. We discussed why these jobs were important and what they do to help us. Next we started to look at Traditional Tales. On Monday 11th March, a magical beanstalk appeared in our classroom. Some of us thought it was a giant, others thought it was a dragon. Reggie thought it was a blue dragon who threw sweeties down to people below (what a kind giant he must be!). We are going to be using our writing skills to help us to write the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. We are also really looking forward to our trip to Brockholes on 25th March!
We have been working so hard since we arrived at school. All our children have shown great independence skills and enjoyed getting to grips with the routines of school life. This week we enjoyed our first whole school trip to church for our Harvest Festival – there was some fantastic singing too! We have started our first book ‘The Little Red Hen’ and enjoyed making bread. So far we have looked at the sounds: s, a, t, p, i, n and will be continuing this work every day. Our Spirituality week was extremely exciting as we were able to move around the school and enjoy lots of fun activities that helped us to develop our talents. Mrs Todd and Miss Begbie are extremely proud of us all!
Curriculum – here is the new curriculum grid that looks at our topics and focuses for the whole of the year. There will be other things that fit in around these. We are very much a child led year group so who knows where our learning will take us!
