Welcome to Foundation Stage!

Welcome to Term 5 of Foundation Stage


Our topic this term is:

'Let's Find Out!'


This term our topic is ‘Let’s Find Out’, we are hoping the weather will be warmer so we can do lot’s of outside learning.  We will be looking at plants; how they grow and how to look after them.  We will explore the environment and how the season’s change around us.  At the end of the term we will be learning about dinosaurs which is always a favourite with the children!  Texts to support our learning will include:  'Grandpa and Lollipop's Garden Safari', 'A Stroll Through the Seasons', 'The Tiny Seed', 'A Dinosaur Stomp' and 'The life of Mary Anning'.


In Literacy we will be continuing to read and write 3 and 4 letter words, listening and looking carefully for digraphs and trigraphs.  We are reading and writing sentences with a big focus on capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.  We will continue to look at stories in more detail during our drawing club sessions and using these to practise our sentence writing.


In Maths, we are building numbers beyond 10, looking at patterns in counting, adding and subtracting.  We are developing 2D and 3D shape knowledge to name and describe shapes and name shapes within shapes.


We are planning a 'Sunflowers' enrichment day where the children will learn about the lifecycle of a sunflower, how to look after plant and begin to plant and look after their own tiny seed!



As always if you have any questions please speak to your child's class teacher.  We look forward to lots of exciting learning this term with your children.
