In English we have started the year by working on The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We will also look at some other Eric Carle books, such as The Bad Tempered Lady Bird and The Tiny Seed. We are working on writing labels, lists and captions. Later in the half term we will do some work around instructions.
In Maths we are started to work on place value and dealing with numbers to 10. We will be moving on to adding and subtracting.They will also be working on some capacity and weight, whilst also being able to carry this out in the role play area in the class.
In Science our topic is linked to learning about minibeasts and their habitats and looking at food chains.
In RE we are learning about ‘Creation’ and God the creator.
Our main topic this half term is titled,‘Wriggle and Crawl’ We will be observing and looking closely at minibeasts, drawing, labelling and studying them. They will have the opportunity to watch butterflies transform and will make a food chain of who eats who. The children will be creative in making their own habitats for minibeasts and creating their own minibeasts with a variety of artistic ways.
