     Big Wide World


This project teaches the children about the global community to which they belong. We will explore our local environment, our school environment and where we live. Then we will go on a plane journey around the world and stop at different destinations around the world researching the climate, animals, traditions and the culture of each country. We will have a visit from Pirate Captain Karl who will tell us about his voyages around the world.  

We we learn about different ways of travelling and transport. In design and technology we will create our own vehicles using various resources and joining techniques. In science we will experiment with materials that float and sink. The role play area this term will be a travel shop, where the children can talk abou the different types of holidays they may like to go on and pack their suitcases ready for their holidays.

In Maths, we will be doing lots of practical based activities based around numbers 1-10! We will work on comparing sizes, capacity and addition and subtraction.

For the children moving up to Reception, we will continue with Read Write Inc. phonics journey this half term. This will involve learning  set 1 sounds and practicing Fred Talk, which is segmenting and blending the sounds within words. Moving on to reading simple CVC words,
