 Term 4

Our theme for Term 4 is sustainability.  We will begin the term by reading "Somebody Swallowed Stanley" and thinking about how we can help look after the planet.  We will be learning about how to reduce waste by recycling and composting.  As part of our learning of Understanding the World, we will be exploring habitats and sharing the wonderful books "Commotion in the Ocean", "Yucky Worms" and "Owl Babies" .  Our phonics groups will continue, and we will practise our sentence writing using capital letters, full stops and finger spaces.  This term we will also be learning about Mother's Day and Easter, as well as looking forward to the changes that spring will bring.

In maths, we will begin the term by comparing length and height.  We will continue our learning of the composition of numbers to 10, as well as consolidating our learning of 2D and 3D shapes.

Book change will continue to take place every Friday and phonics home learning will come home then too. 

Please see the EYFS Learning Overview attached below for more information about the Term 4 curriculum.  

As always, thank you for your continued support.
