Here is a snapshot of some of our topics

 

SPRING TERM

 

This term we have enjoyed the text of Giraffes Can't Dance, Giles Andreae (author)  Guy Parker Rees (illustrator), and the morale of being kind to each other.  We have also created some wonderful African silhouette paintings.  We have also enjoyed The Snail and the Whale by Julia Donaldson  (author),‎ Axel Scheffler (illustrator) and looked at the descriptive writing in the book.

 

The Great Pet Sale by Mick Inkpen (author/illustrator) will lead us into our money topic where will be learning to recognise coins and understand their worth.

 

  

 

In the coming weeks we will be looking at 2D and 3D shapes in the world around us and understanding their properties and how many corners they have.

 

We had great fun with our transport topic.  Our science link was the 'floaty, sinky' transport.  Each of the classes became a holiday destination which everyone visited.

 

   

 

  

 

 

 

AUTUMN TERM

 

All the children have settled in well and are becoming more independent when organising their coats, book bags and learning to sit quietly and listen carefully to instructions.

 

We have enjoyed our work on Room on a Broom and Super Heroes.  We are working on fine motor skills in our handwriting.

 

Our All About Me looked at how we have grown up and how we are all different especially Elmer the Elephant!

 

    

 

We have talked about our likes and dislikes, what we are good at and what qualities makes a good friend.

 

We have also looked at our own family tree.

 

 

 

Healthy eating is very important to maintain strong bones and organs and we have considered what are the best things to eat.

 

 

We held our anual Scarecrow Day and were visited by all of the school as they admired our scrarecrows and joined us for juice and biscuits.  Thank you to everyone who helped the children produce such amazing works or art.
