What an exciting and busy time we have in Term 5!
The main theme for this topic is growth. As part of this topic some of the things that we will explore are:
'Literacy' and 'Communication and Language'
Our focus stories for this topic are 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' by Eric Carle and the traditional tale 'Jack and the Beanstalk'.
We will use these texts to continue to develop our sequencing skills as we order the parts of the story and consolidate our understanding of the order of the days of the week.
We will be producing our own 'Jack and the Beanstalk' writing as we continue to challenge ourselves to write more extended writing.
We continue to develop our addition and subtraction skills this term. We also explore doubling, halving and sharing using ladybirds and butterflies to help us represent this.
As part of our growth work we will use a range of measuring equipment to compare the heights of different plants and we will also be completing some exciting flower challenges. We will also be deepening our understanding of weight and comparison.
