Making Learning Fun


Welcome to Frogs!

Spring 2018


Our teachers are Mrs Bland and Mrs Kirti Patel


Our support team are Mrs Blackburn, Miss Flowers, Miss Joshi and Mrs Esat


In the Frogs class our topics are on a 2 year cycle plan. This is to ensure progression, so that if your child attends our school they do not repeat the same topics.

Topics to be covered this year are:

Autumn Term Spring Term Summer Term
  • Rhymes and Songs
  • Going to the park
  • Food
  • Sights and sounds of Winter
  • My family and Other People
  • Going to the Supermarket
  • Round and Round the Garden
  • Visiting a local village


Frogs have PE on a Thursday morning and a movement session on a Monday morning. Please ensure that all children have kits in school and plimsolls that fit.



As part of our IPC topics Frogs will be visiting Evington Park and Leicester City Centre. There may also be a special Christmas visit too.

My Family and Other People

We started this topic by focusing on me. The children spent time looking at their faces and recreating faces using a range of different art materials.  We then went on to talking about who lives in our house and identifying members of our families in photos.  We finished by looking at our extended families and learning the signs.


Going to the Supermarket

This was our out and about topic and we had lots of fun exploring different types of food using all of our senses.  As part of the topic we focused on what we would see at the shop and the children had a go at role playing shops.  We finished the topic by visiting our local shop and the children enjoyed buying ingredients to make cheese straws.


Spring is Here

In this topic the children learnt all about different spring time flowers and used flowers as a starting point for lots of creative work.  The children had the opportunity to explore a variety of seeds and planted cress seeds of their own. Later on in the topic we focused on spring animals and the children thoroughly enjoyed a visit from Zoolab and watching our own ducks hatch from eggs and grow into small ducklings.  We finished the topic by focusing on Easter and the children were able to take part in a range of activities including an egg hunt.
