Spring Term 2024

This half term, our topic will be 'Bears'. We will be reading stories such as 'Bear Snores On' written by Karma Wilson and 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' by Michael Rosen. 

Communication and Language: We will be doing 'Helicopter Stories'. This is where the children get to orally tell a story whilst their classmates act it out on the class stage. This encourages the children's creativity and imaginative play alongside developing their spoken language and confidence. The children will also be taking it in turns to take home our class teddy bear each weekend. When they return, the chilren love hearing all about what the bear has been doing at home and it gives the children an excellent opportunity to develop their oracy skills; sharing their thoughts and experiences, listening to each other, taking turns to speak and ask questions.

Personal, Social and Emotional Development: We will be talking about our feelings and beginning to understand how others might feel as well as looking at similarities and differences between ourselves. We will be sharing the story 'Is there anyone like me? written by Fred Strydom. These topics will be delivered through circle time and stories using our 'Think Equal' programme. 

Literacy: We will be learning new vocabulary about bears and where they live. We will be sharing many stories to encourage a love of reading and practise turning pages in books and looking at the words and letters on each page, identifying the difference between text and illustrations. We will continue to explore a range of mark making both inside and outside the classroom using various resources such as brushes and water, painting, chalk, pens, pencils and crayons. 

Maths: We are learning positional language. Using words to describe where things are - next to, behind, in front of, on top of, under. 

Understanding the world: We will be continuing our weekly forest school sessions where we are exploring the natural environment with all of our senses.
