Welcome Class RF –
Miss Fernyhough’s Class

Summer Term 2017

Topic:  Our Growing World

This half term we will be learning about and exploring our environment in our topic called ‘Our Growing World’. The children will be learning about how to plant seeds and plants and how to look after them. We will also be finding out about minibeasts, where their habitats are and watching our caterpillars grow into butterflies. Our class stories this half term include Christopher’s Caterpillars and Jasper’s Beanstalk.

During our Maths sessions we will be measuring using the vocabulary tall and short, weighing objects to find those that are heavy and those that are light, filling objects so that they are full and half full and continuing our number work with numbers to 20 and beyond. Using number lines and number squares we will be finding one more and one less and will be beginning to add a small number to a large one and continuing to double and halve as well as count in twos, fives and tens.


Please encourage the children to share their book with everyone. Practise is important. See the supporting information in the Literacy Section on this school website for more help. Please make sure, that the children bring their reading book and planner to school each day so that they can change their book. Please also tell me about other things that you have read during the week – posters, roads signs, comics, leaflets, recipes etc. Reading is lots of fun!

“Home/School books” are a great way of the teachers and the children in our class learn about you and your family. We enjoy learning about what the children have been doing at home. We would also like to hear about your “Wow” moments. These could be starting at Rainbows and saying your Promise, Swimming across the pool, learning to ride bikes without stabilisers, getting dressed by yourself, helping someone and much more. As with all this, it’s not a competition but we genuinely would like to know more.

A few messages for Parents

Your child’s planner should be checked everyday for messages both at school and at home. Please write a message when you hear your child read.

Could I please ask that you make sure your child has a waterproof coat everyday so as they are able to fully explore in the outdoor area.

If you have any questions or are unsure of anything please do not hesitate to speak to myself at the end of the day or pop in and make an appointment.
