'Michael Recycle'

Welcome back to our final topic of the Summer term!

 

Our topic this term is 'Michael Recycle'. The children will be learning all about recycling and ways to look after our planet. We will be focusing on the story of 'Michael Recycle' and we will also examine a variety of different genres and literature related to our topic.

 

The children will be exploring ways we can look after our local area and planet. We will brainstorm ways in which we can help make our world a better place, using ICT to promote this. In addition, we will be continuing with our boat designs this term. Last term the children designed their own boat which they thought would be the best to use in water and would carry the most marbles. This term we would like to create our designs using recycled materials. Please bring in any spare materials you have at home as we will reuse these in class.

I look forward to hearing the children's ideas for our new topic when they return to school. You are always welcome to email with your exciting ideas too!

We will be learning through the six areas of learning and experience. We always ensure that all of our activities are fun and exciting and are chosen by the children. I look forward to sharing the children's creations and work with you via Twitter this term.

Numeracy 

How can you practise Numeracy at home?

* Practise sequences of numbers in different ways, reciting forwards and backwards, and starting at different points.

* Count in 2's , 5's and 10's!

* Can you read and write numbers to 100? use a 100 square to practise!

* Look at the coins that you have at home. Which coins are these? Can you identify them? 

* Go on a shape hunt. Which shapes can you recognise?

 

We will be learning a variety of different numeracy skills this year and we will be using the outdoors to explore numeracy in fun ways.
