Solent Infant School
Welcome to Year R
Summer Term News

As the children embark on their final term in Year R we are excited to announce our two learning themes for the Summer term. The first learning theme, to infinity and beyond, will see the children exploring space. They will develop their information writing, create their own planets and explore a range of different space stories. The second half of the summer term will focus on our learning theme of Amazing Plants. With our exciting whole school trip to Birdworld the children will explore growing and changes as they begin their transition into Year 1 and the Primary National Curriculum.

Challenge Passports
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your enthusiasm and support with the ‘to infinity and beyond’ challenge passport. It has been wonderful to see the children working their way through the challenges. They have been so proud to share their learning and achievements.
The children that complete all of these challenges will earn themselves a very special certificate.

Year R PE Days
Our PE Days are on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please ensure that long hair is tied back and earrings are either removed or covered over on these days. As with all items, please ensure that all of your child’s PE Kit is clearly labelled.

Our first outing on a coach
The children were absolutely incredible as they set off on their first coach trip. They were extremely excited to learn all about the life of a farmer during our visit to Longdown Farm. Well done Reception on being such super stars! We are very excited for our whole school trip to Birdworld.

Library Day
Our library day for all three classes is Friday.

Thank you
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support. If you have any messages for the team in the morning, please pass these on to any member of the team on the gate and they will ensure that your message gets to the class teacher.
