Welcome To The Summer Term 


This Summer Term  will be continuing with our Forest School Sessions on a Tuesday afternoon and our main PE will be on a Friday with Jack.  In the hope of  a beautiful summer please make sure children have a hat and either pre-applied sun cream or their own sun cream to apply themselves. 



The children are all doing so well with their Phonics Learning and making good progress.

Reception will continue to reinforce their Phase 3 knowledge and understanding and move on to Phase 4 in the second half term. Reception will continue learning the Phase 3 phonemes in their Home Books and as we move on to new ones I will send home a new Home Learning book.

Year 1 will be consolidating their Phase 5 knowledge and understanding moving on to learn the split digraphs and alternative phonemes.





Children will explore, name, discuss and raise and answer questions about everyday materials so that they become familiar with the names of materials and properties such as: hard/soft; stretchy/stiff; shiny/dull; rough/smooth; bendy/not bendy; waterproof/not waterproof; absorbent/not absorbent; opaque/transparent. We will explore and experiment with materials, performing simple tests to explore their properties questions, for example: ‘What is the best material for an umbrella?



Children will use the local environment and Forest School to explore and answer questions about plants growing in their habitat. We will begin to learn some common names of flowers, examples of deciduous and evergreen trees, and plant structures (including leaves, flowers (blossom), petals, fruit, roots, bulb, seed, trunk, branches, stem). We will practice our working scientifically by observing closely, perhaps using magnifying glasses, and comparing and contrasting familiar plants; and drawing diagrams showing the parts of different plants including trees.


Please get in touch if you have any ideas or questions.
