Spring Term

During the first half term in the spring term our topic is “On the Farm”.

We are looking at all the different animals we find on farms, animal babies, the things that they eat, what you find on farms and which animals some of our food comes from.

We have a farm shop in our role play area where the children can buy produce generally found in farm shops. There is opportunity to write a shopping list and lots of maths as the shop keeper counts how many items their friend has bought before asking for that amount of money (each item is 1p to buy) to which the customer must give the correct amount of money using 1p coins. The children are encouraged to speak to each other in their roles e.g. shop keep “hello, how may I help you”.

We are also looking at other animals in our phonics sessions and our library books for going home  are all animal based. Library books are changed on a Monday so please send them in.

Mrs Malone kindly brought in her guinea pig, Noddy for us to see. The children really enjoyed stroking

him, learning about his foods and likes and dislikes.
