This month we have had frogspawn and then tadpoles in the classroom - we have loved watching them change and grow. The children have learnt about the life cycle of a frog, a beanstalk and a butterfly in detail. They have planted beans and they have begun to grow after a lot of care. They have also observed caterpillars change into chyrsalli, they are awaiting the butterflies!
The children have written about a lot of the life cycles they have observed. They are writing with increasing independence and improving their sentences by adding 'and'.
In maths the children have learnt about doubling and halving. They have explained their answers using number facts they know already. They have also begun to count up in 2's, 5's and 10's.
Welcome back for our summer term of 2021!
This term our main topic will be ‘Journeys’. We will learn about lots of different transport types and where these may take us in the world. Some of our books we will share will be ‘The Great Balloon Hullabaloo’ by Peter Bently, ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury and ‘Oi! Get off Our Train!’ by John Burningham.
We will also learn about different journeys of life, focusing on growth and life cycles. We will learn about the life cycles of frogs and butterflies, spending time in the spinney and the pond area, as well as planting seeds and observing their growth.
