Week Beginning: 29 March 2021

NURSERY

As this is the last few days before Easter, we thought  it would be fun to take part in Easter activities.

We will be talking about Easter and new life, in particular observing the life cycle of our frogspawn we found at Forest School. Children will have the opportunity to take part in egg and spoon races, learning about positional language, first, second, third.

On Tuesday, the afternoon children will take part in an Easter Egg Hunt around the garden and the morning children will have their Easter Egg Hunt on the Wednesday morning. 

RECEPTION

Next week in Reception we will be having an Easter themed week. We will be making Easter cards and designing our own eggs whilst also learning to Easter story in our RE lessons. 

YEAR 1

In English we will be writing about the topics we have been learning about this term, applying all of the skills we have learned.

In Maths we will be learning about 3D shapes. We will also be practising quarter, half, three quarter and whole turns - both clockwise and anti-clockwise.

Don't forget you will be collecting your children at 1.15 on Wednesday so that you can start your holidays sooner! 

It has been a long term but we made it. A big thanks to you all for your support as always. 

Have a safe and restful Easter break.

From the Year 1 Team.

This week in Writing, we will finish looking at significant nurses from the past. The nurse we will be looking at this week will be Edith Cavell. We will be finishing our History topic by comparing our three significant nurses from this half term: Mary Seacole, Florence Nightingale and Edith Cavell. 

This week in Maths, we will have a focus on 3D shapes. We will identify what 2D shapes we can see on the faces of 3D shapes and we will be identifying the properties of a 3D shape, using our key vocabulary: edges, vertices (corners) and faces.
