Spring Term 2017
This term our focus will be ‘jobs’. With the question of-
When I grow I would like to be…..?
We will be looking at lots of different jobs, going on trips and having lots of visitors.
We will start the topic with the children dressing up as what they would like to be when they grow up.
Tuesday 3rd January- Could your child please come to school on the first day of term dressed as who they would like to be when they grow up.
On Tuesday 10th January, we will be visiting a local farm, to look at the different jobs that a farmer has to do. I will be sending out a letter with more information about this day, but if anyone is free to help from 9-12 on this day please let myself or Mrs Rimmer know.
If anyone would like to come in and talk to the children about the job that they do, that would be great!
If you have any other questions or worries, please don’t hesitate to come and ask me at the end of the school day.
Our topic this half term is ‘All About Me and Who am I’
Through this we will start by exploring why every child is special and each one has his or her own particular skills, fascinations and potential. Throughout this topic each child will have the opportunity to express their individuality, explore their identity, develop their talents and understand their place in both their immediate and the wider world.
Key questions that we will think about are:
Who am I?
What am I like?
What am I good at?
What is special about me?
Where do I live?
As always, if you have any area of expertise which you would like to share with the class, or any resources that could be used as part of our learning, we would be grateful for these!
We have PE on Thursday afternoons with Mr Jarvis. However, please leave your child’s PE kit in school, so they can access this part of the curriculum when needed. At this age it is essential that children practise the tricky task of getting changed!
Please continue to support your child daily, by hearing them read (and writing comments in their reading records) and helping them with phonics and number work. There will continue to be weekly reading and phonics homework set for Reception children.
