Lake Class - Planning


What’s at the bottom of the garden?

We will be adventuring into the worlds of ‘Dinosaurs and Fossils’, ‘Beanstalks and Sunflowers’ and ‘Mini-Beasts’


We will be exploring ideas of similarities and differences in ‘Tyrannosaurus Drip’ and welcoming our friends from Salisbury Museum who will visit us with some real dinosaur fossils!  We will be growing our own beanstalks and sunflowers to see which one will grow the fastest and tallest as well as comparing height, length and lots of opportunities for counting, subitising and developing our numbersense of numbers to ten and exploring numbers larger than 10.  

We will be looking at life cycles and patterns through the book ‘The Tiny Seed’ and using the traditional story ‘The Enormous Turnip’ to develop our story telling and writing skills.

We will explore the idea of a journey from school to the beautiful gardens of Heale House noticing different geographical features like the road, path, river and bridge and seasonal changes, these are all foundations for story telling and fuel for the imagination for play back in the classroom.

After half term we will start cooking on Tuesday’s, more information to follow. We will continue our exploration of Mini-Beasts and the Garden with ‘The Hungry Caterpillar’ and ‘What the ladybird Heard’, with an exciting  summer trip to Langford Lakes.

Finally we will be preparing for a smooth transition to year one, more information to follow nearer the time.
