Term 5

On the farm


As we move into our Summer term we begin to look at the exciting world of farming! The children will be learning about where food comes from, what farming is and how to stay happy and healthy, making good life style choices. Children will also be looking at different animals which they may find on a farm and how they are part of the farming world. In Maths this term the children will be using all of the knowledge they have gained so far on numbers from 0-10 to now move beyond 10! An exciting term ahead!

Exploring numbers beyond 10


This week the children have started to explore numbers beyond 10. The children have enjoyed using numicon pieces to identify the different ways to make numbers to 20.


Working as musicians 


This term the children have been working as musicians. They have been learning how to play the boom whackers, how to follow a beat and rhythm and use code to read and play a piece of music. The children have enjoyed playing these percussion instruments and worked in groups to play nursery rhymes. Take a look at some of our performances.

Creating London Landmarks 


The children have enjoyed creating London landmarks during provision time this term. They have worked brilliantly as a team, listening to each other's ideas and using construction materials to create structures similar to the buildings you may find in the city of London. This has linked in with their learning about King Charles III. The children have also used peg boards to create the Union Jack flag. 










In Maths this week, the children have continued their learning on shape and explored tangrams. The children have worked to create different pictures using a set number of 2D shapes and explored rotating different shapes. Take a look at some of our creations. Well done Joy Class! 

Planting Sunflowers 


Linking to their learning of growing, the children have all been looking after the vegetables that they grew last term but also planting their own sunflowers. This linked to the story the Tiny Seed and all the children could explain what flowers and plants need to grow.



Andy Goldsworthy 


The children have continued to develop their art skills this term. We have focused on the artist Andy Goldsworthy and explored his sculptures. The children worked as a team to create their own sculptures using natural objects. They were able to draw upon their pattern knowledge to create the perfect sculptures. Take a look at some of our pieces of art!
