Welcome to Lake Class
This Term our theme will be:
‘What’s at the bottom of the Garden?’
We will be adventuring into the worlds of ‘Dinosaurs and Fossils’, ‘Beanstalks and Sunflowers’, ‘Mini-Beasts’ and we may spot a Fairy or two!
We will be exploring ideas of similarities and differences in ‘Tyrannosaurus Drip’ and hoping our friends from Salisbury Museum 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 twenty.
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 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.
We will start cooking on Tuesday’s with Mrs Rowe and after half term we will continue our exploration of Mini-Beasts and the Garden with ‘The Hungry Caterpillar’ and ‘What the ladybird Heard’ and discovering Fairy homes!
Finally we will be preparing for a smooth transition to year one, more information to follow nearer the time.
