Welcome to the Summer Term!
The second part of this term we will be focusing our learning around TV characters. The children will have chance to think about who their favourite character is and why they like them.
We will also be thinking about transitions and changes as we start to prepare them for their move to Year One. We will look at how much they have changed and all the things they are able to do now that they couldn't when they were younger. Later in the term they will have the chance to talk about any worries or concerns they may have and get to spend some time with their new teacher.
We will also look at how other things change such as plants and animals. This will link in with our trip to Pennywell Farm.
As discussed at the parent meetings we are now focusing on the Early Learning Goals. At the end of the year we have to assess where the children are in relation to each of the statements. Please do not worry if your child is not yet there, as there is still plenty of time. Year One will be aware of each child and will focus on any areas they may need more support with.
This term we will be focussing on the Early Learning Goal statements (see attached document).
Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED)- Understanding of the feelings of other people and realising they may not think or feel the same as us.
Communication and Language (CL)- Understanding and responding appropriately to thoughts and ideas heard. We will be thinking about using full sentences to share our ideas and asking relevant questions.
Physical Development (PD)- Letter formation using pre-cursive style.
Literacy (L)- Reading and writing words, captions and sentences.
Mathematics (M)- Recording and solving addition and subtraction problems and begin to understand doubling and halving. Children to become more confident using the correct vocabulary relating to Shape, Space and Measure, e.g. time, money, weight.
