Newsletter Summer Term 2016
It is important that your child is happy in our setting, that they are able to express their needs and establish positive relationships with adults and peers so their Personal, Social and Emotional Development is always a focus.
Our theme this term is Growth. The children will be learning about planting, growing and caring for the environment. As gardeners we will be planting our own flowers and edibles in our class gardens ranging from sunflowers to potatoes and even some magic beans! We will learn about the different parts of a plant and what they need to grow and how our food comes from farm to fork. We will also explore a range of mini-beasts found in our school outdoor area. As investigators we will be finding out about the life cycles of different creatures and how we all grow. We will be able to watch the lifecycle of a butterfly in our class! It is through this topic we will incorporate and develop the children’s Expressive Arts and Understanding of the World.

The first half term the children learnt lots of traditional stories like the 3 billy goats gruff. They used lots of props to act them out inside and out. “I liked acting out the story outside. The climbing frame was the bridge,” said Jessie.
Then the second half term we learnt about people who helps us. We learnt about vets, the emergency services and had a lollipop lady (Lena’s nan) come in to talk to us about her job and the things she has to wear and do.
Bleu said, “Lena’s nan had a stick, the stick says STOP.”
As the weather has improved we put on our waterproof trousers, jackets and wellies and enjoyed our mud pit!! Reagan said, “I was digging up the dirt and it was fun! It was soft and splashy!”
