Welcome to the second part of the Spring Term in Venus Class! The class teacher is Miss Brown and the teaching assistant is Miss Court. Mrs Riggs also joins us on a Monday afternoon. We have Outdoor Learning sessions with Ellen every Thursday afternoon.
This term our topic is ‘Amazing Animals’’ where our learning will be focussed around different types of minibeasts. We will start to classify them and learn how we can identify which ones are insects. We will observe the lifecycles of butterflies and frogs and then learn how they change and adapt. We will expand our vocabulary by learning new words such as insect, cocoon, nocturnal etc. and use non-fiction books to answer questions using how, when, what, why and where words.
Thank you for supporting your child with their reading and recording this in their reading diary. We have been really impressed with the dedication you have shown with this. Your support makes a huge difference to your child’s progress. Great collaboration!
Please see the topic overview below for addition information about this term. As always, we endeavour to follow the interests of the children, as is the nature with the EYFS curriculum and keep you up to date with things we have been learning, including ideas to support at home, in our weekly ‘Activity Sheets’ on Seesaw.
If you have any questions I will be available at the school door each day or please send me a message on Seesaw.
We are looking forward to another exciting term!
