Welcome to Earth Class

"Together Is A Wonderful Place To Be"



Summer 2 in Earth Class...

In Earth Class we are going to be using our imagination to create in different ways. During the half term we will be solving crimes with SUPERTATO, looking at traditional tales and fantasy characters, creating with different medias, talking about Transition and moving onto Year 1 in September. We will be getting outside as much as possible to use our natural environment to create, problem solve and learn...Let the Sun Shine!

Helpful Hints: 

  • Please ensure that all uniform, water bottles and bags are clearly named.
  • In Earth class we play outside whatever the weather so please make sure your child has a suitable coat, sun hat and a water bottle (Learning through Play is thirsty work!)
  • Reading books will be changed weekly, We aim to read with children 1-2-1 twice a week.
  • Bug Club e-books will be updated according to the phase and week the children are on.
  • When books are sent home, reading should be a daily occurrence. Ideally, your child should be reading aloud to an adult everyday, this should be recorded in the reading record.
  • Visits to Smokey Row will be on a Thursday
  • Handwriting sessions taking place every Friday
  • A Library session will take place on a Friday
