Miss Kate Higginson

Carne Class - Nursery 1 and 2, Reception and Year 1
 
In Carne Class we use the EYFS curriculum and the National Curriculum. Children learn through guided sessions, play and practical based activities. Not only do activities focus on academic abilities but also on social and emotional aspects, supporting the child as a whole.
OUR HALF TERM TOPIC - SPRING TERM 2
HOW MAGIC WERE JACK'S BEANS?
 
Welcome back to the second half of the Spring term. I hope that you have all had a lovely half term and managed to avoid all the illnesses! Fingers crossed for lots of sunshine and outdoor learning.
 
Our topic this half term is all about plants but entitled ' How magic were Jack's beans?' We shall be looking at the story of Jack and the beanstalk, learning the story and writing about characters and settings. We'll also be planting our own beans and watching their development.

Carne Summer Term 1
 
Welcome back to the summer term! This term our topic is Transport, we will be covering it in all aspects of our learning. In English we will be looking at fiction and non-fiction books, with a focus on different types of sentences (questions, commands and statements). We will be practising our phonics daily and looking at fun ways to use our phonics skills. In maths we will be going over our learning from the past two terms and hopefully the weather will allow us to do some learning outside in our lovely outdoor area! 
During RE we will be focusing on Buddhism, we will be looking at stories from the life of Buddha and what they can tell us. We will also have our Carne class prayers, which are available for the children each day. 
In science we will be exploring different materials, what everyday objects are made out of and recyclable materials.
Please could your child have their PE kit in every day and as the weather is now getting better, could we have sun cream (name labelled) in school. Please come and see me if you have any questions. Thank you, Miss Higginson.
