Term 4: What happens on the farm?

 

 

 

 

Our enquiry this term is 'What Happens on the Farm?' We will be learning all about farm animals and their young, as well as, explore some lifecycles that happen in the Spring time. We will be thinking about how farm animals are taken care of and we will be finding out about different produce that comes from the farm such as milk and eggs. We will learn all about growing fruits and vegetables and we will plant some of our own.

We will be exploring a variety of texts to enhance our learning including 'Noisy Farm', 'What the Ladybird Heard', 'Rosie's Walk' and 'Farmyard Hullabaloo.' We will be revisiting all aspects in Phase 1 phonics including Aspect 7 – Oral Blending and Segmenting. We will be focusing on voice sounds, oral blending and segmenting. We will be learning about height, length, mass and capacity in Maths, as well as, continue to explore our numbers 1-6.
