Topic: Dinosaurs

During week one, we will be completing our topic on transport by looking at trains and enjoying a trip to the STEAM museum in Swindon. We will then be starting to learn about Dinosaurs. We will be looking and creating our own fossils, writing our own non-fiction texts as well as discovering a dinosaur egg!!


In maths, we will be focusing on number and measures. We want to consolidate all the skills so the children are ready for Year One.


In phonics we will be revisiting the sounds learnt last term. Please support your child at home by using the phonics books and the homework folder.


PE is on a Wednesday morning with Mr Chadwick and music is on a Monday moring with Mr Campbell.

We will be starting to talk about transition. The children will spend time in Dolphin Class in preparation for Year 1. We will be encouraging the children to be independent by asking them to come into the classroom a couple of times a week on their own.


Please feel free to ask us if you are unsure about anything. We look forward to working with you and your child in the final term and being part of their learning journey.
