Ladybirds (Reception AS)

Welcome back to the Summer term!

This term our topic is called Roots, Shoots and Muddy Boots! We are starting the term at looking at life on a farm. Discovering different types of styles and techniques they used on their farms.  We’re all looking forward to our farm trip on the 29th April. We will be visiting Odd’s Farm where there will be plenty of opportunities to explore and observe the animals. Feeding them in the barn as a bonus and an exciting tractor ride! We will then continue to explore how things grow. Also looking at different life cycles e.g. chicks We will also be having some very exciting animal visitors come to stay in our classroom. 
Please have a look at our topic map below for some more information about our curriculum coverage. 

In Maths, we will consider to develop a deeper understanding of number by exploring the composition of numbers to 20 and the counting patterns beyond 10. We will also continue to develop an understanding on adding numbers together and the concept of taking away. In phonics we will continue to grow in confidence when reading and writing sentences.We will continue to have PE lessons every Tuesday but from this term we will also have PE on a Monday.  Please make sure your child comes into school wearing their PE kit. It is great to see many of the children eating the fruit provided by the school for their mid-morning snack. If your child is bringing in their own snack, please ensure that it is either fruit or vegetables. We do have children with severe allergies both within our class and across the school therefore there must be NO NUTS in any of the children’s snacks or packed lunches. Please also see the attached allergy poster for Ladybirds. Please provide water in your child's water bottle. 

Please remember that we are always happy to answer any questions you may have with regards to your child’s school life.
