This half term in Robins our topic is 'On the Move!'
We will be learning about different modes of transport. Each week or fortnight we shall be focusing on a different type of transport, these will link to our story and song of the week. There will be opportunities for the children to participate in transport themed role plays, for example a train station, bus and space shuttle. During these topics the children be developing their maths, imaginative and language skills.
Each week we will be learning about a new story. The children will be encouraged to join in with them, use phrases from the story, predict what might happen next or how the story could end and retell them independently. Some of the stories we will be learning about this half term include:
As this is the last term in Robins for many of our children, we will be providing lots of encouragement and opportunities to help prepare them for school in September. This will include encouraging them to copy letters from their name or write their name independently as well as developing listening skills by playing games based on oral blending and segmenting, i.e. blending sounds to create words and breaking words up into their sounds, e.g. c-a-t cat.
We shall also be preparing for our Sports Days which will be held separately from the rest of the school in order to give all children in Robins a chance to participate. The dates for these will be announced shortly. In preparation for this, we are planning to run our PE sessions outside this term. So please ensure your child is wearing appropriate shoes on their PE day, i.e. Monday for Morning Robins and Thursdays for Afternoon Robins.
Can I also please ask you to provide a sun hats and apply sun cream to your child before they come to school if there is hot weather.
We have had great fun and learning lots during our forest school sessions. Here some photos so you can have a look at what we have been up to.
Please ensure your child has their bookbag, coat, wellies and a bag of spare clothes everyday.
Please wait by the Robins gate until a member of staff opens the door.
In Robins we use 'Development Matters in the EYFS'. This helps us to ensure that we meet the needs of all our children and that all children make good progress through exciting and engaging activities. The document below is part of the Development Matters guidance and shows the seven areas of learning in more detail.
