Termly Focus - Autumn Term 2020

charlottedowson on: Butterfly Termly Focus

During this term we have many exciting activities planned into our topic of ‘Farm and Zoo’. The focus in literacy is to become familiar with our names and initial phonemes ‘s,a,t’ using stories, songs and games to introduce and help strengthen understanding. The children will engage with lots of messy play across the curriculum, this will help strengthen their gross motor skills and in turn help with their fine motor pencil grip. We are already enjoying circle time together listening to Dear Zoo and singing Old Macdonald and we will continue reading stories such as The Little Red Hen and Noisy Farm as a class.

In numeracy we have already started investigating numbers to 10 through listening to songs and playing with puzzles. We will continue to look at and learn our numbers throughout the term with the help of the hungry caterpillar and creative indoor and outdoor games.

During our art sessions we have begun exploring different colours as well as outside using the colour mats and chalk. We will continue to strengthen our colour recognition as well as experiment with colour mixing.

Each week we will enjoy a mixture of baking, swimming and visits to the rebound and sensory room with the addition of trips out to the park in the coming weeks. We also place a strong focus on developing each child’s gross motor skills both in the classroom and whilst visiting these other areas. We have observed that all the children are thoroughly enjoying playing outside using the bikes, slide and balancing equipment and we will continue to support the children each day to strengthen their skills whilst using these different items.

It has been a brilliant start to the year with all the children settling in nicely, we are all really looking forward to taking part in the above activities with the Butterfly class and helping them to learn.

Butterfly Termly Focus - Autumn 2019

This term the Butterfly class topic will be 'Long ago and far away'. Our classroom will be invaded by dinosaurs and we will become Mummies in Egypt. We will also become Kings and Queens and fighting off dragons as Knights of the Kings Mill realm. We will also be having a teddy bears picnic as we look at toys from the past. Each week selected children will be going to the shops for our whole class baking. The children will also have opportunities to go to the Rebound room, Swing room and swimming.

We hope the children enjoy this topic and are excited to get back to school. 

Thanks Becky
