Welcome to Hedgehogs!
Welcome back after a wonderfully sunny Easter break!
Our learning journey for the first 3 weeks of summer 1 is 'Weather Patterns'. The children will observe changes across the 4 seasons and how day length varies. They will identify daily weather patterns by keeping a weather diary.
For the next 7 weeks, the children will be mainly taught by our student teacher Miss Addison with support from Miss Smith-Adams. During this period the children will be looking at the learning journey 'The Great Outdoors.'
Below is a detailed overview.
The Great Outdoors overview
Reading is a very important area of learning and we aim to help develop a love of books and reading within all of our children.
Encouraging the children to become more independent in their learning choices is a focus for us and one way that we can do this is to enable the children to change their reading books independently. They all know which books they can choose from and they are reminded each day that they are able to change their reading books as regularly as they would like. This allows them to begin to take some responsibility for their own learning but also read books of their own choosing which helps instill within them a love of reading for pleasure.
As the children are only at the early stages of this it would be helpful if you could remind them that they should change their reading book if you know that they need to. Many of the children are enjoying having this independence but reminders are always useful!
Thank you for your support in this matter.
The children will have PE on Wednesdays and Fridays, however I request PE kits are in school from Monday-Friday as this could change on occasions.
Forest school will happen every other Tuesday. I will remind the children to bring their forest school kit.
