STEAM  

This term in STEAM, we are learning about different types of fruit and vegetables. We will be learning where our fruits and vegetables are grown and where we get our fruit and vegetables from. We will be explaining to the children that in the summer, lots of fruit and vegetables grow. Now the summer is ending, it is time to harvest them in. We will be learning that in the past, farmers used to save some of the food which had been harvested and give it to people who were hungry or didn’t have enough. We can still do this today which is why we have brought in our harvest collection. It is nice to help other people and can make us feel good. We will be having a vegetable box delivered into school and we will be tasting these fruits and vegetables. 

If possible, it would be fantastic if children could please bring in any non-perishable food items for a harvest collection which can be donated to a local food bank. 

 

Reading

We are very excited to be continuing ‘Talk through stories’ this term, which provides the opportunity for children to really explore key texts, understand the principle of the story, learn new vocabulary and explore new characters. Each week we focus on one key text which the children will become very familiar with.  

Our literacy key texts for this will be: 

  • The Enormous Turnip 

  • Farmer Duck 

  • Apple Pig 

  • Each peach, pear, plum 

  • Rosie’s walk
