3 pigs

Parents information

We are only half way through the school year and the children in the foundation unit have already been on and incredible learning journey.  From I spy to trips to the moon.

Our theme this half term is “Home sweet home” We will begin by sharing the traditional tale of The Three Little Pigs but we will then allow the children’s imaginations to run away with them as they think about new versions of the story. This will be the basis of our literacy work.

Our role-play areas will focus on building and homes with our building sites and estate agents.

The children will thinking about their own home and looking at houses in our local environment. ICT will be used to locate our own homes using Google Earth.

Creative work this half term will be focused on using different construction materials to create houses and other buildings. The children will also experience using Clay. We will be looking at the work of Friedensreich Hundertwasser and recreating some of his ideas.

Our mathematical focus will be on size, length distance and capacity, comparing and measuring how tall different structures are. Shapes and positional language will be encouraged as the children are building.

In the last week of Term we will be celebrating Easter the children will be talking about how they celebrate with their families as well as taking part in lots of fun activities including making Easter baskets and going on an egg hunt.
