In term 1 we looked at primary and secondary colours and designed pictures in the style of the artist Mondrian. We enjoyed reading the story of 'The Tiger who came to tea' and started thinking about the passing of time and the seasons.
This term we have been learning about people in History. We have learnt about Neil Armstrong the first man to walk on the moon and have used the laptops to find out about British astronaut Tim Peake. We have written space stories and are now writing poetry.
Terms 5 and 6
In terms 5 and 6 we will be thinking about the seaside and making piers out of paper then testing them to see which is the strongest! We will be making maps and doing lots of Geography based around the Katie Morag stories. In Science we will be learning about carnivores, herbivores and omnivores, also fascinating facts about lots of different sea creatures.
What a fantastic time we had during our visit to Weston-Super-Mare. We visited the aquarium, built sandcastles and did some detailed seaside sketches. The sun shone all day and we even managed to have a lovely picnic outside - without getting any sand in our sandwiches! We have finished term 5 in style with lots of sport activities during our health and fitness week.
Check back soon for photographs of some of the exciting things we have been exploring.
