Glade Hill Primary and Nursery School

We are Golden and we SPARKLE

Summer 2: All about me

This half term our theme will be, ‘All About Me’. We will be learning all about, the life cycle of humans, our senses and the importance of looking after ourselves and staying healthy. We will be looking at our baby photographs and noting at how we are different now, compared to when we were a baby.  (Please can you bring a photograph into school or email it to We will be reading the books, Monkey Puzzle, Funny bones and Amazing. We will be using these books in order to cover many practical and creative activities which will excite, engage and enhance your child’s learning. In PSED, the children will be learning all about other people’s feelings, learning how to resolve our own conflicts and developing the skills on how to face changes and new challenges that we might face.  The N2 children will be having their transition visits to F2 and there will be lots of preparation to ensure this runs as smoothly as possible. In Maths we will be re-visiting, pattern, shape, measure as well as ordering, partitioning and subitising numbers 0-5. In phonics we will continue to learn initial sounds, rhyme, blending and segmenting words. We will also be having a visit from Imagine Avenue where we will be able to explore and use our imaginations through play. In PE, we will be practising our sports day skills ready for the big day.

We are sure your child will enjoy this final term of the school year.  Remember to check Tapestry and the website regularly where there will be lots of information about what we have been learning.
