This week at Gray's Farm - W/B 25/02


Week Beginning: 25 February 2020


We are very excited to start our new story topic of “Jack and the Bean Stalk” The children will be taking part in planting, helping them to understand care for living things. May we ask you to please provide one plastic small flower pot. 

We shall be using various resources to measure height. Through our music and movement sessions children shall explore different tempos of music from the loud sounds of giants footsteps to the gentle sound of the harp. 


Welcome back and we hope you all had a lovely half term break, and that the children are ready for lots of new learning! This term we are starting our topic on Growing and Changing.

We will be starting this by reading Jack and the Beanstalk and our class activities will be based around this. We will be planting seeds and learning what they need to grow and stay alive as well as making giant castles and collaging beanstalk pictures! Our phonics sounds for this week are air and ure (fair, pure).

We will also be revising all of the sounds that we have learnt so far and all of our tricky words. In Maths we will be continuing with work on addition and solving addition number sentences. We will also be measuring beanstalks and giant footprints whilst comparing length and height.

Please remember that parents evening is Tuesday 3rd and Wednesday 4th March. Please ensure you have booked an appointment on our online portal.
