LORDSHIP LANE PRIMARY SCHOOL

A Love of Learning and the Perseverance to Succeed (LLPS)

Spring 2 Baa Baa Tweet Tweet

'Baa Baa Tweet Tweet'

 

Our connector this term is 'Baa Baa Tweet Tweet'. Through this connector we will be teaching our children about the different animals found at the farm yard. We will be learning about the similarities and differences of the animals and learning descriptive words to talk about their features, textures and size.

 

We will also be developing our awareness of animal sounds through familiar nursery rhymes. This will support children's ability to differentiate between animal sounds and environmental sounds. We will hopefully also have a visit from an animal farm company to ensure that the children have a real and meaningful experience to consolidate their learning through exploration of live animals. 

 

We will be exploring the life cycle of different creatures born during the Spring time such as frogs, chicks and rabbits and talk about our favourites. 

 

Our foundation stage curriculum is split into two sections. We focus on the prime areas and specific areas of learning. Below is the learning objectives we will aim to achieve during the first part of our settling term.
