Summer Term Curriculum Map 2017

This term our topic is “The Great Outdoors”. In the first half term, we will be learning about growing and planting. We will be planting – and hopefully harvesting – fruit, vegetable and salad crops (as well as flowers) in the classroom and our Outside Area. We will have some eggs in class which we will observe closely as they hatch! Later on in the term, we will watch as caterpillars become butterflies. Our trip to Wandlebury will give us an opportunity to learn more about the great outdoors and we will be looking for minibeasts of all kinds in our local area.

Communication, Language and Literacy: We will enjoy listening and responding to stories, poems and rhymes and using our imagination! We will use the book ‘You Choose’ by Pippa Goodhart and Nick Sharratt as a starting point for literacy work. We will also be using non-fiction texts to find out more about plants and how we use them, as well as animals. We will continue to learn more phonemes and tricky words and use this knowledge in our reading and writing.

Mathematics: We will count in 2s, 5s and 10s as well as counting in 1s to 100 and beyond. We will be adding, subtracting, sharing into equal groups, doubling and halving and doing plenty of problem solving. We will be doing more work on shapes. We will be exploring size, weight, capacity, time, distance and money. Wow!

Understanding the World: We will be learning about growing our own food, as well as change and care and concern for living things and the environment. We will be finding and observing minibeasts and making the most of having chicks and caterpillars in the classroom! In RE, we will be learning about our local community and special people.

Physical Development: This term we will be doing some athletics as well as playing parachute games and developing our skills with small apparatus, such as balls, beanbags etc – outside as much as possible. We will also be working on pencil control and handwriting skills. The children will practise their cutting, joining and construction skills as they make models and sculptures.

Personal, Social and Emotional Development: This term our topic is Healthy and Safer Lifestyles. The children will be learning about healthy choices and how to stay healthy, as well as keeping safe and assessing risk.

Expressive Arts and Design: We will be doing observational drawing and painting, using clay and other natural objects to make models and using our imagination! In music, we will sing and play percussion instruments, exploring patterns in music, going on a sound walk and using the outdoors to inspire music-making.

To support your child’s learning at home: *Read with, and to, your child as often as you can! *Encourage your child to do their homework. *Look for numbers everywhere! *Look for 2D and 3D shapes everywhere. *Observe changes in plants and spot minibeasts in the garden. *Count everything. *Have fun!

Extended Learning Challenge: **To be handed in by Monday 22nd May 2017. Choose one (or more!) of the following: 1. Write a story – make up your own or re-tell one that you already know – involving plants and/or animals. Draw some pictures to go with it. 2.
