What we're learning this term...

Science: Weather and the Seasons

This term the children will be exploring the different Seasons and types of Weather in Science.  The children will be making weather charts, finding out about changes through the Seasons and even giving their own weather forecasts!

Geography: Countries and Capitals in the UK

In Geography the children will be learning about countries and capital cities in the United Kingdom and the surrounding seas. We'll be looking at maps to find out information such as crowded areas, colder areas and where there are mountains.  What can you find out about the UK at home?

RE: Community - Special People

In RE we will be talking about how we gather together as a family in Mass. We'll be learning about the different things we see in Church and how they are used and the role of the Priest and other people who help in Church.

Maths: Addition and Subtraction and numbers to 20

In Maths we'll continue looking at place value up to 20 and using number bonds to 10 for addition and subtraction. 

Keep practising those bonds! 

Art: Drawing 

In this topic, the children will be experimenting with creating images through lines and shapes on different media and looking at the techniques used by artists such as Kandinsky. 

Please see our Spring newsletter for more information on how you can support learning at home.

Fun in Forest School!

The children have been exploring forest school in the sun and rain!

What materials did you find?

Our Treasure Hunt

We followed compass directions in the hall to find the treasure!

Pirate Day!

Today we were pirates for the day! First Meg Mate came to visit and told us all about life as a pirate, including what was on their ships, what they ate and how to steer the boat.  We even looked at some pirate weapons!  We made pirate badges and learnt a song about pirates.  It was great fun and we're going to keep learning more over the next few weeks!

Games with Chris

We've had so much fun this half term practising our ball skills and joining in team games.
