Spring 2

Our New Topic for Spring Term 2 is ‘Birmingham and the UK’. Each week will have a different theme to support our learning journey. We will be using the book ‘Birmingham Boy’ to help us explore our local area and talk about Birmingham as a city in the UK. The themes include: Transport, My House / My Family and Road Safety. 

Our learning will link to the themes to create an immersive learning environment. We will also work on our individual learning targets every day.  

We will continue to have swimming on Wednesday mornings and PE every Thursday afternoon. This half-term we will be focusing on body management. We will also be having Forest School every Friday morning this half term (we will remind you on Dojo when this is!) followed by Jo Jingles in the afternoon.  

Please keep checking our Class Dojo page for any updates or changes. 

 

Spring 1

Our New Topic for Spring Term 1 is ‘Snow White.’ We will be theming our learning weekly, to learn about different aspects of the story. The themes include: Emotions, Stranger Danger, Friendships and Differences.

Our learning will link to the themes to create an immersive learning environment. We will also have a live performance of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs by M&M productions.

We will have swimming on a Wednesday morning and PE every Friday morning. This half-term we will be focusing on gym.

Please keep checking our Class Dojo page for any updates or changes.

The children thoroughly enjoyed exploring our Snow white theme throughout the half term. We had lots of opportunities to explore our emotions with the help of 7 dwarves as well as counting up to and beyond 7. The children learnt about forest animals, friendship and differences and had great fun using their art skills to create a woodland wonderland for out Let’s Connect afternoon.  

 Our Let's Connect event was a huge success! Across the Orchard pathway, we created an immersive Snow White experience which included a music room, an enchanted forest and a breakout sensory space. In Crickets class, we created a wonderful woodland for Snow white and her friends. There were forest animals, sticks, leaves and messy soil for the children to experience a woodland walk within our classroom.
