The Summer Term has started and this terms topic for FS1 is called "Changes".
In this topic the children have the opportunity to explore growth and change. We are already observing the life cycle of the frog, our tadpoles are doing really well this year. After half term we will be pupating butterflies and planting seeds. Children will also have the opportunity to consider their own growth and change through considering their own changes since they were babies.
This term also sees the start of the Jolly Phonics. We are already well into the second book and the children have made a flying start, especially those who are doing their homework every evening - you're going to be brilliant readers! Just look at some of the activities we have already been enjoying this term.

Singing with microphones

Playing with all the transport equipment

Thinking about mothers and babies, and how the animals change when they grow up.

Using construction equipment

Making and playing in dens

Role play outdoors
We've also been using shaving foam to make marks in this week. Swirling and writing with their hands and fingers. We try to encourage the children to make anti-clockwise movements with their fingers in the foam. This is very good preparation for correct formation of letters as they start to write.
