This half term, Peacock Class’ topic is ‘summer weather’.  In week 1, we will be learning about summer as a season, looking at different months that are classed as ‘summer months’ and the main differences between the seasons. Our book of the week will be Seren’s Seasons by Twinkl Original Stories. In week 2, we will explore signs of summer and identify signs of summer in our environments. Our book of the week will be The Wonders of Summer by Kealy Connor Lonning. In week 3, we will learn about sun safety.  We will identify how we can keep ourselves safe in the sun and why this is important.  Our book of the week will be Sammy Seagull’s Summer Safety Story by Twinkl Original Stories.  In week 4, we will learn about different types of weather we may see in the summer, and types of weather we are less likely to see in the summer.  Our book of the week will be The Little Raindrop by Natures Stories.  In week 5, we will learn how to dress for summer and will identify which clothes are appropriate in different types of weather.  Our book of the week will be Summer Colour by Dianna Murray.  In our sixth and final week of the school year, we will learn about recording the weather and will keep a weather diary of what the weather is like each day.

 

This half term, we look forward to enjoying our weekly community visits. These will include trips to Box Hill for ice creams, park and supermarkets visits and, also, a day trip to the seaside! More information for this visit will be following shortly.

 

We will also continue our swimming sessions at Dorking pool every Tuesday. Please do remember to keep sending in named swimming kits on this day. We also look forward to continuing our sessions with Julie from Boogie Beat on Friday mornings and will be carrying on with our Akademi dance sessions on Wednesdays and learning lots of new songs and dances.  In addition to working towards individual numeracy targets, we will be covering some general topics in our maths sessions.  Our termly focus in measurement and geometry sessions will be comparing height and in statistics and probability we are continuing with reading pictograms.  Our P.E focus for this term is gymnastics and we will be following the Twinkl Scheme of work – Animal Olympics as well as practising for Sports Day! We will be moving to chemistry as our science focus for this half term and will be learning about magnets.  We will also be exploring and carrying out tests of a range of rocks and minerals.  In our Jigsaw PSHE sessions, we will be focusing on ‘changing me’.  Some of the topics we will be covering include understanding the human life cycle, changes in our growing bodies and how to cope with these changes and differences between male and female bodies and identifying these body parts.   Our ICT focus this half-term will be ‘presentation skills’ and we will be learning how to save and retrieve files on the computer. We will be making presentations on our favourite topics and will share these with you towards the end of the term.  

In addition to the above, we will also be enjoying the warmer weather and will have lots of fun in the sun with water play sessions and other activities.  If I could ask you all to please send in a spare change of clothes that would be very helpful.  If there is any other information you would like me to provide you with or if you have any questions, please do get in touch.
