The value for this half term is all about being Co-operative. We will be teaching the children what this means and recognising when they demonstrate this value at school.

 This half term our topic is         Growing

Our themes will include frogs and life cycles, Jack and the Beanstalk, seeds, plants, babies and 'The Billy Goats Gruff.' At home, you could follow up our topic work by:

 

  • Reading stories about growth/size – such as ‘The Enormous Turnip’, ‘Daisy and the Egg’ by Jane Simmons, ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’, ‘Jasper’s beanstalk’ and ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’. 
  • Looking at family photos with your child and talking about how they/their siblings have changed or grown. Talk about celebrations that you have enjoyed together e.g. birthdays, naming ceremonies.
  • Measuring your child’s growth on a height chart, comparing their height to that of other family members.
  • Helping your child to plant seeds or seedlings at home and observing how they grow.
  • Visiting a farm and looking for baby animals or finding a pond with some frogspawn.
  • Visiting a local garden centre and looking at what is growing (plants and animals!)

 

Special requests

We will be talking about how your children have changed since they were babies. If possible, please could you send in a baby photo of your child by 7th May which can be used for a wall display? Preferably no photos larger than 4”x 6”.

If you have any spare seeds for the children to use in our garden centre role play, please send them in. Thanks.

We will be planting sunflowers for the children to bring home. Please take photos of how they grow and put them on Tapestry for us to admire.

If you are happy to donate a final £2 towards cooking costs for the summer term, a tub will be in the lobby for your contributions.
