Spring Term...

This term our topic is What a Wonderful World.

We will be looking at our immediate environment including school and home and describing what we can see. We will talk about how to keep our environment tidy and the importance of recycling; with books such as Tidy – Emily Gravett and Michael Recycle – Ellie Bethel. We will look closely at materials and how to sort them into different groups, as well as finding materials we can reuse at the craft station.

We will then be looking at other environments, identifying similarities and differences and describing different things we can see. We will look at places such as the Antarctic with the story Lost and Found –Oliver Jeffers and Africa with the story The Ugly Five – Julia Donaldson. We will look at different weathers, animals and communities.

Towards the end of the term, we will be learning about the seasons with emphasis on Spring. We will look at plants and growth closely and learn how to look after a plant. The children will have experience growing their own plants and looking after them. This will also involve books such as Jack and the Beanstalk and Superworm-Julia Donaldson.
