Literacy: Reading
This half term in reading we will be starting our guided reading groups where we will be reading as together in order to have a more in depth discussion about the text. I am really impressed with the enthusiasm for reading this half term so far and can really see that where the hard work has been put in at home it is really paying off.
Foundation Summer 2 Curriculum Topics
Literacy: Writing
We have already got going with writing this half term as we are now applying our skills! We will be doing lots of writing about what we can see and do at the seaside, writing fact files about sea creatures and also reading the Snail and the Whale and Commotion in the Ocean.
In ICT we will continue to practise using the mouse and the keyboard. We will start to practise logging on and off so that we can be more independent in the ICT suite in year one. We will be describing sea creatures using word programme and finding the correct letters on the keyboard to type.
What is at the Seaside?
PE will be on Friday mornings this half term where we will be doing sports day practise and dance. We may also practise sports day with Mrs Wright on Thursdays if the weather is nice!

Mrs Wright and Mrs Brailsford are also continuing the bikeability work with F2 on Wednesday afternoons.
We have lots planned in topic floorbook work this half term! We will be poster making in groups looking at how we can stay safe on the beach. Also, we will be labelling and talking about what is usually seen at the seaside. We will have a go again at writing some seaside acrostic poems!
An artist that we will be looking at is Natalie Pascoe who has painted some beautiful seaside landscapes. So we will be practising our colour mixing techniques! We also have our Chapeltown Art themed week coming up!
Outdoor Provision
As the weather is getting warmer we will be doing outdoor learning often. Please ensure that children come with a sun hat and sun cream daily so that they can reapply it to protect their skin in hot weather. Children also need a water bottle daily. Thank you.
