What we did last half term
Last half term was another busy one! Our topic was ‘Down on the Farm’. We enjoyed lots of farm themed activities across all subjects. In English we learned The Little Red Hen story using signs to help us retell it to others. We enjoyed exploring different textures and choosing appropriate materials to make animal pictures, as well as looking at what materials would make a good animal shelter – we had great fun testing out different sheets and making dens! We have loved visiting the farm and seeing the goats that came to visit the school.
Red Phase enjoyed a ‘Wild West’ American themed day on the last day. We played games, experienced Wild West cooking, learned some dancing and made some native crafts.
What we are doing this half term / Reminders
This half term we will be learning all about the seaside! We will do lots of fun arts and crafts, identify sea and land areas on maps, identify different sea creatures, explore how seaside holiday destinations have changed over time and explore and compare different textures/materials found on the beach. We will also be looking at the effects of pollution in the ocean and how we can look after our environment, the sea and sea creatures. We will become experts in water safety and use these skills on sailing trips. We will also enjoy lots of sand and water play – learning through touch!
We try to change library books on Wednesdays
P.E. is on Wednesday
