This term in Red Class...
This half term our learning journey is ‘Down by the Seaside’. We are of course lucky enough to live by the sea and we will be drawing on the children’s own experiences to begin our topic when we come to school dressed for a day at the beach for our ‘stunning start’. Our focus books will be ‘Rainbow Fish’ by Marcus Pfister and a selection of other fiction and non-fiction books about the sea. We will be creating music and art based on the seaside and using our imaginations to take on different roles in our beach hut role-play area.
We will also be preparing the children for their transition into Year 1; this will include sharing any worries that the children might have, talking about the different environment and spending time with their new teacher and in their new classroom.
We will be continuing to revise all of the Phase 3 phonemes this term and using our knowledge about segmenting and blending to read and write sentences.
