Welcome to Term 5

Dear Parents & Carers

We hope you have had a lovely Easter and enjoyed eating all those Easter eggs! 

This term our Topic is ‘Growing’.  The children have already explored the school ‘Pollination’ and ‘Wildlife’ area and they have talked about what seeds they would like to grow including, sunflowers and tomatoes.  They were also disappointed in the lack of bugs found on their bug hunt so they have had a super idea of creating their own bug hotel.  They agreed it may be a “bit complicated” so they have written a letter to their Class 5 Buddies for their support with this.

We will focus on several stories and information books about minibeasts and growing plants, including ‘Oliver’s Vegetables’ by Vivian French, ‘The Hungry Caterpillar’ by Eric Carle and ‘Eddie’s Garden’ by Sarah Garland.

Please find the Class 1 Topic plan attached to give you a better overview of your child’s learning this term.

Warm regards,

The Class 1 Team
