What are we learning?

Understanding the World

Currently, we are learning about mini-beasts and are going to be exploring our outdoor area to see what we can discover and investigate.

Expressive Arts and Design

The children are going to be developing their skills in art and design by mixing colours and experimenting with different tools and materials.

Communication and Language

The children are going to be continuing to develop their language and communication skills by learning new vocabulary that they can then transfer into their writing.

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

This term we are going to be working on ‘independence and resilience’. This will be particularly useful for the children’s transition into Year 1.

Physical Development

We are going to be making full use of our outdoor area to develop gross motor skills. Our PE lessons will be outdoors


The children are going to continue with their phonics sessions and are going to be developing their writing, both teacher led and independently in continuous provision. They are going to be writing lots of facts about mini-beasts and working on ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ story by Eric Carle.


The children are going to continue to work on numbers up to 20. They will be adding and subtracting, learning number bonds and doubles and problem solving indoors and outdoors, in continuous provision.
