A big welcome back to Robin Class... we hope you had a wonderful Easter break!
During the Summer Term, we will be joining in with our whole school topic Laudato Si’, Care for Our Common Home. This is an appeal from Pope Francis shared in the form of a letter addressed to "every person living on this planet", for an inclusive dialogue about how we are shaping the future of our planet. We will begin to think about the bigger problems facing our world and what we can do to help both in school and out in the wider world.
The story of ‘The Very Hungry caterpillar’ is celebrating its 50th birthday this month, and so we will start off the new term by rearing our own caterpillars into butterflies. We will think about looking after our animals, plants and habitats. Through our final Talk for Writing sequence ‘Commotion in the Ocean’, we will think about saving our seas and the affects of plastic pollution through poetry, artwork and science.
We will continue our Daily Phonics teaching, continuing to focus on developing our blending skills using the sounds we have previously learnt. We will also learn some new tricky words and develop a wider range of reading strategies.
Our Maths focus for this term will be on shape, space and measures. We will continue to embed early number and counting skills through daily fluency activities.
Our RE learning will cover the topics of Easter, Pentecost and Mission, Other Faiths and Big Questions.
We will continue to foster the children’s independence and excellent attitude towards learning, and kindly ask for your support in doing so by completing the home learning tasks and allowing the children to take responsibility for their belongings.
Towards the end of the final half term, we will start to think about moving onwards and upwards into Year One. You will receive more information about our transition process from Reception into Year One in due course. We will celebrate the children’s fabulous year with a graduation party!
