# Spring Term

Spring Term

We have lots of exciting activities planned for the Spring Term in Foundation Stage 2.

Spring Term 1 - Our topic will be 'Can you have a picnic on the moon?' In this topic, we will be learning all about Space. We will look more at different planets, learn about the moon and sun and look at space travel.

Spring Term 2 -  Our topic will be 'Should I help Farmer Duck?' In this topic, we will be learning all about the farm. We will learn about different animals on the farm, what farmers do and what products are produced on the farm.

Well done to all the children who took part in our Reading Easter Challenge. We were really pleased to see lots of children from Merlin Class reading at home. Well done to our two winners and our runners up.

Maths: Finding Number Bonds To 9

In Maths, we have been looking at finding different number bonds. Today, we used numicon pictures to help us identify different bonds to 9. We did a super job of colouring in the two sections of the 9 numicon, counting how many were in each section and writing the matching number sentences. See some examples of our super Maths work below:

Celebrating Easter

In class, we have been learning about the Christian celebration of Easter. We have learnt about how and why it is celebrated. We have enjoyed taking part in different Easter themed activities in our active learning time, such as making Easter cards, creating our own Easter chicks and completing Easter themed jigsaws.

Fun Outdoors

We love spending time in our outdoor area. We have been enjoying playing running games, practising our bat and ball skills, playing on the balancing equipment, practising our jumping skills and playing bean bag target practise.

Easter Cards and Eggs

As part of our learning about the Christian celebration of Easter, we have been making our own Easter cards and using paint to design our own Easter eggs.

Maths: Number Lines

In Maths, we have been using number lines to help us see how many more we need to add to get a given number. We have enjoyed stepping on the number line to help us count how many more are needed.

We were very surprised to find an alien had been in our classroom! We enjoyed learning more about our visitor and helped him complete a number of missions. We helped him put on his coat so he wasn't cold on Earth, helped him fix his spaceship, wrote  questions to him, taught him about Earth and learnt about Venus where he was from.
