Congratulations to Nursery learner of the week! You have come back to school so grown up and settled back into our routines brilliantly! Well done

 

 

This half term our topic is 'What the ladybird heard'. We will look at and monitor beans as they grow, noting how they change. In literacy lessons, we’ll make predictions about stories and try out some farmyard rhymes. We’ll create songs about the farm to sing as we shake our homemade seed shakers in time. In our mathematics lessons, we’ll use an animal ‘baa chart’ to estimate the number of popular farmyard animals, and we’ll use addition and subtraction to help Little Bo Beep count her sheep. Outside, we’ll take it in turns to be sheepdogs, sheep and farmers. Can we herd all of our sheep into the pen? Getting creative, we’ll use coloured play dough and clay to create farmyard scenarios, and ‘paint’ farm animals using graphics software. Then, we’ll design and make delicious flavoured breads to sell in our very own farm shop! We will also look at minibeasts like the ladybird and make our own bug hotels!

 

Four Core Purposes this half term - We will be:

 

Healthy, confident individuals - Have secure values and are establishing our spiritual and ethical beliefs, Are building our mental and emotional well-being by developing confidence, resilience and empathy, Take part in physical activity, Form positive relationships based upon trust and mutual respect, Have the skills and knowledge to manage everyday life as independently as we can

 

Ethically, informed citizens - ​​​​​​​Understand and consider the impact of our actions when making choices and acting, Are knowledgeable about our culture, community, society and the world, now and in the past, Respect the needs and rights of others, as a member of a diverse society

Christian Values

 

                                                                      

 

Our school Christian Value for this term is Justice

 

Justice means more than making things ‘fair’. In order for people to live together well in a just community, it is important to have rules or laws that everybody sticks to. Imagine if there were no rules for people driving cars on the road!

 

As a family you may want to talk about:

• why it is important to have rules and laws

• rules or laws that you don’t think are just (or fair)

• family rules that you think are important
