Message from Lime Class

Welcome back! We hope you have had a fantastic holiday!

This half term we will spend the first weeks getting to know one another and learning to work together as a group. Throughout the remainder of the term, we will be learning about the following topics:

Literacy: In our class story, we will be reading the story of ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’. This links well with our topic of ‘buildings, homes and habitats’ and will also allow the children to engage in role play linked to familiar experiences and it will give us the opportunity to adventure in our outside environment too. We will continue to incorporate speaking and listening activities across the school day and within focused activities.

Numeracy: In our numeracy lesson, we will be focussing upon shape and pattern. We are hoping to have lots of experiences around our 4 basic 2D shapes and explore these shapes in a variety of different contexts to show our understanding. We will also be trying to increase the time we spend exploring different sensory materials.

Topic: This half term we will be learning all about ‘Buildings, homes and habitats’. This will link very closely with our story, looking at where different mini beasts and animals live and what their homes and habitats might look like? There will be lots of sensory opportunities within water, grass and mud! This will be a very exciting topic and due to the opportunity of being able to explore in the outside environment we can consolidate our learning with real life experiences.

PE: We are lucky to be having Rachel at the start of this year who specialises in delivering an adapted PE session for our children which best meets their needs. Pupils will also work on their physical independent learning targets throughout this time.  We are also very lucky to have a swimming slot on a Thursday afternoon and this will hopefully continue until the end of the year and we are looking at following an adapted swimming scheme which your child will try and complete simple activities in the water.

Food technology: We will be having lots of experiences involving food throughout the year in Lime class. We will be having a food phonics session each week relating to the first sounds S A T P I N. We will be also embracing ‘fun with food’ sessions, here we will develop our skills of touching, smelling and hopefully tasting a wide range of new foods.

We are looking forward to an exciting term ahead. If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact me or communicate through the school diary.

Yours sincerely,

Caroline Riley and the Lime class team
