The Beach

Our topic this term is ‘The Beach’. The attached ‘Topic Web’ should help you to understand what we are aiming to cover in Reception during the term. It has a knowledge and understanding of the world focus and enables children to explore plants, animals and materials found on the seashore.

During this topic the children will learn about:

  • Plants and animals that live on the sea shore
  • Name different coastal towns in Wales
  • Keeping safe in the sea and on the beach
  • Painting seaside landscapes
  • Exploring floating and sinking

PE will continue to be on a Thursday. Can you please take a moment to check all clothing is clearly labelled, so we can ensure items do not get misplaced. Also, please make sure your child brings their reading book & reading diary each day.

During this time of year the children will be planting and caring for things that grow in our garden.We would be grateful for any donations of plants, seeds and herbs etc.

As always the children will be spending a lot of time outdoors, so on sunny days, please can you ensure you apply sun screen to your child and they bring a hat for protection. If you would like to also bring sun cream for us to apply, can you label your child’s bottle with their name.

Thank you once again for your support – please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions, or concerns.

Kind Regards

Miss Norton
