Summer 1:

This half term we have been studying animals our topic. We have been learning to sort and match animals in topic.  In maths we have been learning about number, sorting more and less and matching amounts to numerals. In cooking we have been learning some independent skills such as spreading, cutting, stirring and using different appliances such as microwave and a toaster.

We have been developing our scissor skills, fine motor control and have had lots of messy fun in art using paints, clay and a range of materials.

In phonics, we have been learning new sounds, blending three letters to make a word and learning to overwrite and write letters.  

In Forest Schools we have been learning all about our environment. We have used our animal topic to inform our learning by completing lots of fun art and craft activities.
