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.

Songs and Rhymes

We started this topic by looking at different songs that we use in our classroom to help with our routines.  We then focused on songs about ourselves and our bodies. We got to know our new friends and learnt their names. Towards the end of the topic we learnt some songs about colour and lots of new action songs.


Going to the Park

This was our out and about topic and we had lots of fun playing with a range of different sensory materials such as soil, leaves and twigs.  We learnt how to use different outdoor equipment and had a great time on our trip to Evington Park.



In this topic the children learnt all about the different types of food using a range of stories as starting points.  We used Goldilocks and the Three Bears to start our week on breakfast foods.  The children enjoyed playing with oats, making bears and cooking their own porridge.  During our week about fruit and vegetables the children enjoyed a visit to Leicester Market and used PECs cards to buy their favourite. We also learnt about food from around the world.


Sights and Sounds of Winter

In this topic the children learnt all about weather that we might see in the winter and the sorts of clothes you would need to wear.  The children had a great time exploring ice and insta-snow during sensory sessions.  The second half of the topic focused on Christmas and the children took part in a range of craft and cooking activities.  They also had an amazing day out at West Lodge Rural Centre where they were able to take part in a live nativity, walk through the Elves village and meet Santa himself in the workshop.
