What we did last half term
Our topic last half term was ‘Spring Watch’ so we spent a lot of time learning outside as well as inside. Our spring hunt around the school grounds was very exciting and the children spotted everything on the list except a lamb! Many of our Maths, Science and English lessons were based on growing seeds and bulbs. We grew seeds in different conditions, made bar charts showing growth, learned how to care for different plants and learned about the different parts of plants and flowers. We also looked after the environment by litter picking, clearing weeds and planting bulbs.
Alongside our topic we have also learned about and celebrated different event including Australia Day and The Royal Wedding
We ended the term with a visit to Marquis Drive
What we are doing this half term
We are now studying rivers and coasts, learning about the water cycle and finding out how rivers form and where they go. One of our visits will be pond dipping, seeing what creatures we can find.
Please ensure your child has sun cream on each morning and they also bring some with them if you wish us to reapply it at lunchtime. Most days we are outside for some lessons as well as playtimes.
It is Sports day soon, please make sure your child has a full P.E. kit in school, and check that their pumps/trainers fit as we will be practising outside in each P.E.lesson.
Please ensure all clothing, lunch bags, water bottles etc. are labelled.
