Book of the Week
Our book focus this week is Superworm by Julia Donaldson. Our choice this week was inspired by the children in Forest School who found worms and began chatting about the story.
We will focus on the rhyme within the story and encourage the children to join in with repeated refrains.
In the story baby toad runs into the road and Superworm saves him by stretching out and pulling him to safety. We will discuss being safe when we are outside. We will use our playground to talk about road safety.
We will continue to learn the words to a verse of The National Anthem in preparation for the whole school celebrations of the Queen's Jubilee.

We are also focussing on segmenting and blending e.g. c-u-p "cup".
Caterpillars are exploring filling and emptying containers with water, rice and lentils. They will talk about 'full' and 'empty'. They will be during their own milk at snack time.
Butterflies are exploring length. They will be challenged to find objects longer and shorter to a chosen item. They will begin to measure how long an object is using bricks.
Key days to remember:
Every Thursday Morning
All children please come dressed for Forest School on a Thursday morning. We ask that your child has waterproofs (jacket and trousers or an all in one) and wellington boots.
Even if it is a warm and sunny day, the children must wear long sleeves - this is to protect them from the sun and from branches and nettles. We always recommend waterproof trousers as it allows the children to really enjoy water and mud play.
