Spring 2 in Willow
We hope that you have all had a lovely half term break. May we take this opportunity to inform you of our plans for this half term. In the second half of the Spring term our topic will be 'Transport'. Each week will have a specific focus which you can see in the table below. We hope this will give you a chance to share and talk about what your child is doing at school.
Throughout the half term your child will engage in a range of activities. In the first week we will be looking at 'Walking'. The children will be creating an exhibition of Studley Green where they will go on a local walk to identify the main landmarks. They will then use this first hand experience to create models and writing about their local area. Cherry will have the pleasure to come and view all our hard work. During the second week we will be learning about 'Cars' and the children will make their own road signs and number plates. We will also have 'Book Week' where the children will have the opportunity to dress up and engage in additional reading based activities. In week 3 the focus will be on 'Trains'. Looking closely at 'The Train Ride' and creating are own version of Kandinsky's concentric circles are some of the activities that we will be doing in that week. Our school trip to Bekonscot will be happening in week 4. It is in week 5 that we will be making our own paper planes and parachutes. We will also be doing some follow up work on our trip. In our final week we will be looking at 'Space' through the book 'Whatever Next'.
Your child will also be focusing on developing many other skills. In ICT the children will be developing their ability to use a beebot. In circle time we will be looking at the concept of sharing and resolving conflicts. Skipping and ball skills are the main focus of PE. Counting, number recognition and addition are the main mathematical concepts for this half term.
Please let us know if you are able to come in and share a book at the end of the day.
Class trip to Bekonscot Model Village on 20.3.20
