Our question to start this term is ‘What’s in the box?’ and will see us all using our imaginations to think about what we could find inside different boxes, what we could make from a box, or even where we could go in a box! Please feel free to share any box based stories you have at home.
We will be getting creative with boxes and doing lots of imaginative play as well as making boxes into all manner of different things. Throughout the term we will be seamlessly weaving literacy and mathematics into our topics, as well as covering all the other areas of learning.
We will then continue to use our imaginations as we look at the books ‘Billy’s Bucket’ and ‘Stanley’s Stick’. We look forward to finding out what every child’s stick can turn into.
Just as the term started with ‘What’s in the box?’ we will look at very small containers near the end of the term by investigating seeds and how they contain a plant yet to be grown.
Our mathematics focus will be on shape, space and measure, whilst still consolidating our work on numbers and calculation.
Forest School sessions will continue every Thursday afternoon, and the children will be going for two weeks in a row when it is their groups turn – remember to check the weekly bulletin for your child’s sessions.
