Toucans Year R

Welcome to Toucan Class 2020! 




Our PE day is Friday.

Our Forest School days are Monday and Tuesday. 


You can catch up with everything your child has been doing at school on their Tapestry account, if you have any problems logging in please come and ask.


Our topic for Term 2 is based on Woodlands and Winter. We will be reading books such as We're Going on a Bear Hunt, Stanley's Stick and Pick a Pine Tree. We will be learning about habitats and hibernation and we will be thinking about comparing similarities and differences in terms of places and in nature. 


We will continue to focus on making friends and enjoying school, learning about school routines and rules and feeling confident in our new surroundings.


We will be learning a range of songs with dancing and instruments ahead of Christmas. We will also be learning about celebrations such as Bonfire Night, Diwali, Hanukkah and Christmas. 


We will be learning about shapes, position and direction and the passing of time. We will continue to focus on numbers up to five. 


We will be continuing with sending reading books home on a Monday and a picture book on a Friday. 



Our PE days are Tuesday and Friday. Please ensure all children have a fully-labelled PE kit in school with them on these days. Thank you! 



We will be visiting the library every Friday; this will be the day when the children will be given the opportunity to change their library books.


We love Maths in Toucan and Parrots Class because we listen to lots of songs, play fun games and learn lots of new things. Below are some of our favourite songs and games.
