Summer Term 2- Fun at the Seaside
This half term we will be learning all about Pirates, under the sea creatures and the environment. We will be creating our own maps, messages in a bottle and learning animal facts.
Each day our class participate in Plan Do Review. In the plan-do review process, children make plans, carry them out, and reflect on what they have done. In doing so, children learn to take initiative, solve problems, self-regulate, and accomplish their goals - their play becomes more purposeful and focused.
