Our new planning theme for the next 2 weeks is 'British Values.' πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ This is an important part of daily life at Whytebeams and is built into our curriculum but we are focussing on these values to share with you all. We will be talking about British customs and values, what we eat, family times, manners community and respecting others. Today we have a visit from the police to talk about how they help as as part of our important topic. Children have been talking about what they eat at home and making their own food plates. Today we have Whytebeams Pizzeria with a pop up restaurant, tills and ordering pads for our waitresses! 🌳

Learning Themes
Our learning theme over the last two weeks has been transport.
Over the next two weeks we will be looking at change and growth. Children will be planting individual sunflower seeds to take home and some will be planted in our garden. We will be learning new songs about plants and flowers growing. The book of the week is 'the gingerbread man.' Children will be part of an interactive story, and use the loose parts project to build the set. Our craft activity will be decorating paper gingerbread men!

 

Home Learning Ideas....
To link in with our theme of change and growth find a sunny spot for your child's sunflower seed and encourage children to water it. Take photos or draw pictures of the changes. Bring them in or post them to Facebook. (Ongoing)
Go on a spring scavenger hunt. Draw a grid of six squares on plain paper and ask your child to collect and stick on the following… blossom petals, a daffodil petal, a new green leaf, a daisy, some fresh grass and a feather or a twig.
Happy hunting!

Our theme is "new growth" for this last short week of the spring term. Children are making bird-feeders and will be bringing home Easter egg chocolate nests too. Encourage your child to look at the different types of birds attracted to the bird feeder. Over the Easter break draw a picture or print a photo of anything exciting you have done. This could include a trip to visit friends or family, a day out, or maybe a holiday

​

 

Our learning theme for the next two weeks will be "space".
For home learning look at the night sky with your child. Talk about the moon, stars and planets. Maybe the international space station and rockets! What is it like in space, who has been there and how far away is the moon? Bring in a picture or painting of the night sky or a rocket! Black paper or paint, silver glitter or white paint for the stars..... Have fun!
