Foundation Stage - Mr Milburn & Mrs Villiger

Commotion in the Ocean

To all the parents and carers wondering what our final topic will be,

Ahoy me hearties… Reception class is ready to sail the high seas,

Following the success of our last topic, ‘Attenborough’s Animal Antics’,

Year R chose to learn about the world oceans from the Pacific to the Atlantic,

Telling the time with Tiddler in Maths…tick tock, tick tock, tick tock,

Helping Miss Skate take the register while learning about o’clock,

Singing pirate shanties and scrubbing the decks on the Black Bloomer,

Reading Pirate’s Love Underpants and showcasing our sense of humour!

A special treasure hunt in our pirate phonics where X marks the spot,

Firing the tricky word cannon balls – who has the most accurate shot?

Writing our own messages to help save the whale who is beached in the bay,

And sharing our silvery trails as the snail with our head teacher (Ms Way),

Counting the hidden treasure and creating doubling treasure chests,

Labelling our pirate ship designs featuring rigging and a crow’s nest,

Reading One is a Snail, Ten Is A Crab and calculating all the feet,

How many different ways can you make ten if all the animals were to meet?

Designing ways to stop The Pirate Cruncher by building special traps,

And warning Captain Purplebeard’s crew by mark making monster maps!

Sharing our own adventure stories for our topic, ‘Commotion in the Ocean’,

Discussing sun safety including wearing hats, sunglasses and sun lotion,

We will learn about the effects of water pollution and ocean plastic,

Designing our own posters to reduce, reuse and recycle will be fantastic!

The summer term will see us prepare for our first Red Barn Sports Day,

Receive a visit from the mobile farm and watch the Key Stage Two play,

So all aboard The Jolly Red Barn with lots of swashbuckling fun,

As we depart our Reception crew and steer the ship towards Year One!
