Welcome back to our final term in Foundation! It is a very busy term with lots of exciting things happening - our school trip, sports day and visiting our new classrooms.
This week we are going to Woodside Wildlife Park and so we are learning all about animals and their babies and habitats. We are going to write recounts of our adventures and try to remember how many different habitats we could see and how the different types of animals are cared for. In maths we are learning about sharing and grouping objects and also practising our counting in twos, fives and tens. it is also Father's day coming up so we will be preparing some surprises for our daddies.
This week our caterpillars are arriving. We are very excited to be part of their life cycle and to see what happens and to learn how to care for them. In maths we have been revising our learning about positional language and learning our left and right. We will also look at symmetrical patterns and create our own beautiful clay butterflies with our own symmetrical patterns. In our writing we will be writing alternative versions of Little red Riding Hood where she will meet a butterfly! Also we will be writing speech bubbles for the different characters in the story.
We will be learning the story of Cinderella this week and making ugly sister cress heads so that we can learn about how plants grow and what the need to grow well. We will be experimenting by putting seeds in lots of different places and with or without water to see what will happen. Once we have made our cress heads we will be writing a set of instructions to tell Cinderella how she could make one too!
