LEARNING THEMES – LOOKING AFTER OUR WORLD

As we will be visiting our local Park this week we will be thinking about the natural world around us. We will be inviting the children to thinking about how we can look after the world around us and why this is important. We will be thinking about materials; natural and man made and making some ‘natural art’.

We will also be talking with the children about how to stay safe on our trip and how we need to behave when we are on the bus and at the park.

KEY VOCABULARY

World, earth, natural, man made, taking care, looking after, park, litter

LITERACY- SPEAKING & LISTENING

We will be talking about our trip to the park, and sequencing the key events. The children will be using verbs in the past tense to talk about what they did at the park.

KEY VOCABULARY

Park, nature, trees, pond, flowers, path, picnic, order, first, then, after that, next

PHONICS

The children will continue to progress with their ‘Letters and Sounds’,  working with class teachers throughout the week to consolidate their phonic skills and learn new sounds as they are ready to move on. Please check your children’s phonics pack for new sounds, tricky words and common sight words to practise at home in line with their learning at school.

MATHS – NUMBER

There is so much maths in the park! We will be supporting the children to describe some patterns they see in nature, for example the petals around a flower, or compare the heights of the trees and to use positional and directional words to talk about the route through the park, for example, along the path, over the bridge and around the pond.

KEY VOCABULARY

Pattern, repeat, height, tall, short, along, around, next to, over, under, through
