This project has a Knowledge and Understanding of the World focus and enables children to explore
water in its many different forms using their senses in a range of first hand sensory experiences.
Opportunities should be provided for children to experience a range of activities that explore the
properties of water, and the ways in which we use water in our everyday lives.
In this project children will learn about:
• Water in its different forms
• Ways water is used in the home
• Being safe near water
• Wet weather including storms
• Animals that live in ponds and streams
• Volume and measures in practical activities
• Recording ideas, feelings and experiences through drawing, mark making and emergent writing
• The importance of water for seeds and plants
• Responding to sounds and music using their bodies imaginatively
• The Welsh language using words and phrases across a range of experiences both in the indoor
and outdoor environment.
This term our topic is called 'Growing' and the children will be learning about things that grow in the Spring and how we grow in love like Jesus during Lent.
Please read with your child daily.
Reading books will be changed twice a week and sight words will be sent home every half term that the children must learn.
BIG Maths is a teaching approach that makes progress in maths easy and fun. BIG Maths has been extremely successful both nationally and internationally with thousands of children learning through daily BIG Maths ‘CLIC’ sessions and the weekly ‘Beat That!’ challenges.
Big Maths Beat That is a weekly timed test of your child’s Learn Its. The aim is to improve their individual score each time!
How can you help your child?
Big Maths is a very useful tool to help children become numerate… but we still need your support at home.
Help your child practise their Maths at home – a few minutes a day is all you need.
Insist that numbers are written the correct way round.
Congratulate your child if their Big Maths score goes up!
Make maths a positive experience (Don’t tell your child you were no good at maths when you were at school – they will think they should be the same!)
Homework will be sent home on a Friday and must be returned by Wedensday.
P.E. is on a Thursday.
Please ensure that your child has their P.E. kit ( t shirt, shorts/joggers) labelled and in a bag.
Room on the Broom
The children acted out the story 'Room on the Broom' by Julia Donaldson.
