Welcome to Class RL –
Mrs Lawton’s Class

Summer Term 2017

Topic:  Our Growing World

This half term we will be learning 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. Also finding out about minibeasts, where their habitats are and watching our caterpillars grow into butterflies. Our stories include Christopher’s Caterpillars and Jasper’s Beanstalk.

In Maths sessions we will be measuring using the vocabulary tall and short, weight 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 numberlines and number squares we will be finding one more and one less and begin to add a small number to a large one and continuing to double and halve as well as count in twos, fives and tens.

Homework

The children are enjoying choosing their own reading book to take home and share with your Mum, Dad, Grandma, Grandad and anyone else who would like to share the book with them. Please make sure, children that you bring your reading book and planner to school each day so that you can change your book. You might also want to tell me about other things that you have read during the week – posters, roads signs, comics, leaflets, recipes etc. Reading is such fun!

“Home/School books” are a great way of the teachers and the children in your class learn about you and your family. We enjoy learning about what they children have achieved at home – Rainbow Promises, Swimming badges, learning to ride bikes without stabilisers and much more.

A few messages for Parents

The children’s planner should be checked everyday for messages both at school and at home. Please write a message when you hear your child read or if someone different is collecting them.

Please make sure your child has a waterproof coat everyday.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to speak to myself at the end of the day or come and make an appointment.
