We are very excited to have the children begin their learning journey with us. We are looking forward to watching the children grow, develop their confidence and tackle new challenges with enthusiasm.

Spring 2


This term our topic is 'Once Upon a Time'. We will be using some of our favourite traditional tales to explore this topic. As part of this learning we will be investigating famous castles around the world, building our own castles and designing a new dress for a princess! This term we will be focusing on ensuring the children are confident reading sentences containing taught sounds and tricky words. The children will also be applying this knowledge to support the writing of simple words and captions. As we move closer to Spring, we will be growing our own beans!

Each week we will take a flight on 'Flyford Airways' to a new destination and explore what is it like to live there. This will include traditional food, festivals and the climate. We will also continue to learn lots of new sounds and tricky words in phonics.

The children will be exploring different elements of the Circus through a range of key texts. We will also think about different modes of transport when exploring how the Circus moves around! As we move closer to Christmas we will be writing letters to Santa, making Christmas crafts and putting in lots of practice for the Christmas production!
