Welcome to Foundation Stage
This half term will be our ‘Picture this’ topic. We will be using ‘The Water Lily Pond,’ picture by Claude Monet as a creative stimulus which will run throughout all our work.
We will be working on a large collaborative piece of art work. We will leave you in suspense as to what this will be and hope you come to view our display at the exhibition. We will keep you posted with the details.
In mathematics this half term we will be:
-Doubling, Halving and sharing
-Talking about money and solving simple problems
-Using language related to length and height and solving simple problems.
-Solving Shape, space and measures problems
-Building models and describing shapes and their
In literacy we will continue to practise using
capital letters, full stops and finger spaces in our writing. We are working hard to read our sentences to ensure that it makes sense. We will be writing our own fact files about things that we would see in and around ponds, growing and caring for plants, planning and designing our own ponds and retelling fiction stories linked to the theme e.g. pig in a pond, Come on Daisy and I am frog.
In PE we will be continuing to develop our ball skills and playing simple games. Please support and encourage your child at home to get dressed and undressed independently, where possible including buttons. Please make sure all PE kits including footwear are in school for the first Monday after half term.
Our PE day next half term will be on a Monday (Tuesday on the week of May day bank holiday).
Thank you for your continued support
