Welcome to Gnome Class - Half Term 5


Half Term 5



Our learning this half term will mainly focus around food!


We will be growing our own peas from seeds and learning about how food grows from seed to the yummy vegetable we love to enjoy at snack time! We will make observations about the changes we see and learning where other food comes from.


We will enjoy books linked to food, both non-fiction and fiction and have a go at creating our own Giuseppe Arcimboldo inspired art work containing fruit and vegetables.


We will also learn about Earth Day Monday 22nd  April, St George’s day on Tuesday 23rd Arpil, Sun Safety Week on 6th-12th May and celebrate National Numeracy Day on May 22nd.



During this half term, we will be continuing to use Drawing Club to bring fun and creativity to our literacy lessons, focusing on vocabulary and then drawing our ideas and beginning to use captions/sentences to explain our ideas. One of the early learning goals is to write simple phrases and sentences that can be read by others and this is the focus for the Summer term.



We will start this half term recapping on the sounds learnt during level 3 and then start level 4. Please log onto Twinkl Go here > Twinkl Go and enter the codes shared on our Class Dojo page. 



This half term, we will be focusing on doubling and halving, adding and subtracting and number patterns beyond 20.

Dates for your diary – Summer Half Term 1

Thursday May 2nd Polling Day – School closed to children

Wednesday 15th May – Whole Class photograph day 


There may be more dates to share as the term goes on but for now, these are the key dates J

PE and book change day is still each Wednesday.


Also worth a reminder is that we go outside each day, whatever the weather and as we move into a (hopefully!) sunnier term, it is worth thinking about sun protection for your child. A sun hat which covers your child’s neck and applying all day sun lotion before school are both great precautions and we will also teach the children about the dangers of too much sun and how we can protect ourselves during Sun Safety week.
