Welcome back everyone! We are so excited to be back together again and are looking forward to beginning our topic this term. Our first topic is, 'How does your garden grow?' We will be investigating the theme of planting and growing as well as looking at minibeasts. Over the course of the next few weeks we will be planting a range of seeds and plants and we will spend time gardening and taking care of our playground environment and the plants that we are growing. We will also learn about the lifecycle of a butterfly and frog and hopefully watch butterflies hatch from an egg in our special butterfly house. We will also be making our own class garden centre role play area outside.
PE this term will be on a Tuesday with Mrs Dawkins and also on a Wednesday where they will be given cricket coaching by Leicestershire County Cricket Club. Please remember to dress your child in their PE kit before coming to school on these days. Remember to send your child in with a water bottle everyday as well as their coats, as our classroom doors are open at all times and it can sometimes be quite chilly.
We will continue to share your child's learning through Tapestry and we always enjoy you sharing their achievements at home with us.
On a final note, can we ask that you continue to practise your child's sounds, word cards and reading books with them as often as possible and record this in their yellow reading record.
Thank you for your continued support, it is very much appreciated.
Holly Class Staff.
