Welcome to the Summer term


Welcome to the summer term!


I hope you all had a lovely break over the Easter holiday.


Early Years Curriculum

This half term our topic is ‘Noah’s Ark and underwater worlds’. To develop our Understanding of the World we will be looking closely at animals and sea creatures, exploring their habitats and mapping their global origins. We will be thinking about fishing traditions past and present and experimenting further with the concepts of floating and sinking. Our Literacy sessions will link closely to our Communication and Language theme and we will be concentrating on using description within storytelling and using key features of narrative within our writing. We will also be using story maps and boards to help us to develop our own stories. We will continue to develop our reading and writing skills through daily phonics and guided reading sessions.

During our Maths sessions we will be focusing on multiples and will be beginning to think about number bonds. We will also be considering the properties of 2D and 3D shapes and using shapes for a purpose by creating representations.

During Personal, Social and Emotional sessions we will be talking about the meaning of change and thinking about changes within our lives. We will consider the importance of societies, structures and families.

During our PE sessions we will focus on continuing to develop controlled and coordinated movements, using dance as a medium for expression.

The children will also have the chance to explore a range of aspects within music, RE and ICT through guided and independent sessions. Within our French sessions we will focus on songs and rhymes.

As part of our topic we will be having a visit from Lion Learners and get up close to some furry, scaly and spiky visitors!

Please look out for your child’s new leaps targets within their partnership book. If you would like any support or ideas for learning at home please feel free to come and talk to me.



Reading at home

As we are now entering the final term of the year it is as important as ever for your child to read at home and practise their sight words and spellings with an adult every day so please try to ensure you are finding time to do this.

Your continued support at home is highly valued and will help your child to become a confident, enthusiastic reader.



Please refer to your child’s partnership book for key dates for the summer term.


We are looking forward to a fabulous first half of the summer term!
