Spring Term Learning

In term 3 we will be continuing all the excitement and magic we have introduced through the last two terms. The Message Centre has become a real hub in our classrooms, where children spend time mark making, which is now leading to writing sounds and words – it’s amazing! The children have recently discovered some top-secret code writing pens which they can use to write and reveal secret messages to each other – these are a definite hit!

We will be continuing to develop a language rich environment for your children this term, by continuing our weekly ‘Poetry Basket’ poem for the children (and you!) to enjoy. We will, this term, be learning a traditional Nursery Rhyme which your children can share with you. These include Jack and Jill, The Grand Old Duke of York, Pussy Cat Pussy Cat and so many more. Drawing Club continues to be a popular time of the day; children are immersed in the world of story, where they can explore ideas and share them through mark making.

Our value this term is ‘Truthfulness’ and our Global Curriculum link is ‘Rights and Responsibilities’. We will be exploring lots of different stories that will help us understand what Truthfulness is all about and why it is important. We will think about why rules are an important part of our lives and we will actually be meeting a real life police officer – how exciting! The children will be able to come up with their own questions to find out all they can about being in the Police Force and helping to keep us all safe. We will continue to use and develop our Brave Changemaker skills such as making decisions, problem solving and communicating.

It’s going to be another busy and exciting term!
