Spring Term 1

What's happening this term?


This term our starting theme is 'Frozen'. We will be exploring the seasons and why things change. The children will investigate the properties of water and think critically about how this effects the world around us. We will look at Birds and Animals and how they approach the changing season. Towards the end of the term we will be planting seeds in our garden, the children will be exploring what we need for healthy plants to grow.

Home Learning


Home learning will be given out via Class Dojo on a Friday. Please send any photos you have of completing activities, we love to see them!


Children can change their reading books in the classroom during the morning sessions. Books will then be quarantined for 4 days. 

Our busy morning routine


Every morning the children start the day using a range of skills. These focus tasks can be scissor skills, pencil control, letter formation, counting and phonics.


Dough Disco


To encourage fine motor skills we participate in a Dough Disco session. This helps to strengthen the finger muscles and improve handwriting and pencil control. We do this to music which the children really enjoy.


Healthy Snack


Everyday the children enjoy a healthy snack which consists of milk or water, apples, bananas, oranges, pears, carrots, tomatoes and raisins.


Wake and Shake


Every day the children have a 'Wake and Shake' session. This improves gross motor skills which then supports fine motor skills and helps to develop the children's handwriting.
