Our learning themes this term are;

All About Me

The children will be discussing what makes them special and learning about similarities and differences between each other. They will be looking at how they have changed since they were a baby. They will also be learning about families, including who is in their family, who they live with, how their families may be different from other families and writing about their grandparents.

Materials

The children will be investigating man-made and natural materials, through stories such as Noah’s Ark, Three Bags Full and The Blue Balloon. They will also have a pirate themed week, when learning about water.

Transport

The children will be learning about different forms of transport, including land, sea and air. They will also be asked to go on a train ride, to help deepen their understanding of different forms of transport.

The Easter Story and Signs of Spring

The children will share Bible stories about Easter as well as learning about Spring and new life.
