Love of Learning, Love of Life, Love of One Another
Welcome to the Summer Term in Reception.
The summer term in Class One is well underway with lots of smiles and cheerful faces, which hopefully in turn will bring warm sunny weather for us all to share in our outdoor classroom.
We aim to use our outside area to its maximum potential this term and therefore would ask all parents to ensure their child has a wind/shower proof coat in school every day whatever the weather. As we are always hopeful of good weather, we would also ask that children arrive at school ‘playtime prepared’, that is equipped with a sunhat and with sun-cream applied. We have sun protection cream in class which we can apply as necessary as a top up, please inform us if you do not want this to be used on your child.
During this final half term our topic will be ‘Amazing Animals’. We will begin our topic discussing animals and their young, learning about life cycles and new vocabulary related to baby animals. During this week we will also talk about our pets and animals we help to look after at home and will become caring vets in our role-play area. We are hoping to have a ‘Bring your pet to school’ session on Thursday 7th June. If your child has a pet and would like to be part of this experience, please speak to us asap and we will arrange a suitable slot. Each week we will be studying and comparing the different habitats found locally and around the world, looking at the animals that live there and how their physical appearance suits their environmental conditions. We will be engaged in lots of art and craft activities, making representations of the animals and landscapes that we have studied. In RE we will share bible stories such as Noah’s Ark and think about how God created our wonderful earth. We hope to celebrate and share our topic work with you during a ‘Noah’s Ark Afternoon’ - further details will be provided through the Home/School Diary.
Throughout the summer term we hope PE sessions can be held outside whenever possible, therefore, we would ask that you send a PE kit which includes some outdoor PE shoes or trainers into school each Monday ready for the week ahead we will endeavour to send home the kit each Friday.
Please remember to send your child to school with a summer coat and hat each day whatever the weather and apply sun-cream to start the day. Thank you.
Mrs Borwell and Mrs Atkinson.
