I hope everyone had a lovely half term holiday. Just a quick message to let you know that our topic for this half term is ‘Travel’. The children in Reception will be exploring maps and start to recognise where some countries are. They will also be having a look at treasure maps and different forms of travel. There will be lots of exciting role play involved! The children in KS1 will be learning to recognise the 7 continents and five oceans on world maps and globes. They will also be looking at the countries and seas that make up the United Kingdom. We will be making our own maps and identifying physical and human features. In science both Reception and KS1 children will be learning about the North and South Pole, we will be doing lots of exciting experiments involving ice. We will also be exploring which materials are flexible, waterproof and warm. If your child would like to complete any research or if they have done anything that they would like to share relating to our topic it would be very welcomed.
We will continue to have PE sessions every Monday afternoon. Forest school sessions will be on Tuesday mornings, please ensure the children have lots of layers to keep them warm. Thank you
If ever you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to come and see me. I am very happy to help in any way that I can.
Thank you for your support.
