Cottesmore Academy

Term 5

Welcome back team EYFS! 


This term our learning will focus on people who help us and the different jobs that we would like to have in the future or may already do now to help at home. We will learn about the different groups that we belong to and understand that we are all special and unique.


We will be kick starting our topic 'Who are you going to call?' by exploring lots of different artefacts, pictures and photos. We will discuss what we would like our role play areas to be to support our learning and begin to build those together straight away!


Our Rainbow Challenges for this term will be based on our favourite five books which are:

- Just the Job for Dad (to explore different jobs that people do whilst understanding that anybody can do any job if they put their mind to it and work for it)

- Supertato (to link to our learning about healthy eating and the importance of looking after and brushing our teeth)

- Burglar Bill (following the children's interests about Police Officers and building on their understanding about how they help us) 

- Farmer Duck (to understand how famers help us and where our food comes from)

- Hairy Maclary's Rumpus at the Vet (following the children's interests in dogs whilst building on their understanding of the role of a vet)


Last term we observed some of the changes that occurred as the season changed from winter to spring and have been so lucky to have such beautiful blossom trees bloom in our outdoor area over Easter! We will continue to learn about the changes that will continue to occur and will create a picture of a duckling, using paint to create texture, representing just one of the baby animals that we had learnt about last term. Towards the end of the term, we will begin to see some more changes as we approach summer so will learn about the importance of keeping ourselves safe in the sun.


We cannot wait to see what this term will bring! We have been so impressed with your learning and couldn't be prouder of the progress that each and every one of you have made, keep it up team.

Here is the knowledge and vocabulary that we will develop this term!
