What Is Happening In Summer term?

This term our question is: How can I make my mark?

This term’s project will have an arts focus. We will be using our sense’s and exploring textures both in the classroom environment and outside on school grounds.

 

 

 

What Is Happening In Summer Term?

We will have a key book to help focus our learning, this will be “We’re going on a bear hunt”. The children will learn these stories through the Talk for Writing approach where we use drama, actions, story maps and visual prompts to help us.

We will be focusing on what we can ‘see’, ‘smell’, ‘touch’ and ‘taste’ throughout this project and introducing lots of sensory play. We will be walking to the forest on our very own bear hunt and collecting materials as we go to create a sensory collage in class. There will be many opportunities for the children to practice pre – writing skills whilst focusing on fine and gross motor skills.

Our main Maths work in the Summer Term will be exploring numbers to 3 and all of the skills that go hand in hand with counting. The children will be encouraged to count to 3 confidently and independently.  For more information on the Numberblocks scheme please visit:

What We Do Each Day

Children have plenty of time to play each day. This gives them plenty of opportunity to explore the world around them, problem solve, make their own choices, develop social skills and much more. Our two year olds love to spend time outdoors where they can be active whilst exploring the environment. Each day, we spend time doing small group activities that help us develop important life skills such as how to get along with others, how to communicate effectively and how to become confident. We love to express ourselves through messy activities, songs, music and stories.

Key Worker System

Key workers develop close relationships with children and their families to make sure needs are met and that children are able to make good progress. They help children to work towards their next steps and record their progress in their learning journey books. Key workers maintain a calm and nurturing environment for children to flourish.

Communication and Language

Communication and Language is one of the Prime Areas of Learning in the Early Years Curriculum.

We teach the three aspects of this, Speaking, Understanding and Listening and Attention throughout all of our adult directed and child initiated sessions. Communication and Language skills are important for learning across the whole curriculum so it is vital that we get this right for our children. 

If you would like to see the expectations for your child's Communication and Language skills please see the attached "Small Talk" document. 

We may talk to you in the first half-term if we believe your child could benefit from some extra support from Warrington's Speech and Language services. Please feel free to ask any member of the Early Years team if you have any questions.
