Summer 1 2021

Our topic this half term is ‘Mini-beasts’. We will look at a book each week focusing on  the five key concepts of print: print has meaning, print can have different purposes, we read English text from left to right and top to bottom, the names of different parts of a book and page sequencing as well as developing rhyme and alliteration. The books we will be covering are ‘Teeny Weeny Tadpole’, ‘The Hungry Caterpillar (Talk 4 Writing), ‘Bad Tempered Ladybird’, ‘Snail Trail/ Mad about Minibeasts’ and ‘Tiny Seed/ Jasper’s Beanstalk’.

We will be looking at the life cycle of frogs and butterflies and will have real ones within the setting so that children can see the changes first hand. 

We are confident that your children will have a fun, safe, varied and enjoyable experience at Tadpoles. Please follow us on Twitter for weekly updates @MuganRBL. We will also share their experiences through our observation tool called ‘Evidence Me’. You are also able to share experiences that your child has had via this tool and we can share experiences at school and will send them to you.

 

Thanks for your continued support
