Terms 1 and 2
This term has been very busy already and is going to get even busier. In Geography we have been finding out about the four countries that make up the United Kingdom and in Science we have been finding out about seasonal change and the weather. Combining these two areas of learning has worked well. The children have been finding out about being weather forecasters, and have been consolidating their learning of the different countries by forecasting the weather in Scotland, England, Northern Ireland and Wales. Each group of children has been working together as a camera person, director and forecaster to produce some excellent films. Here are some stills from some of the films.
Terms 3 and 4
What a busy Spring Term Rabbit class had. It all began with Bob ‘Man on the Moon’. We loved reading this book and were even lucky enough to have a visit from Bob’s friend Don. He told us all about life in space and even let us try on some of his astronauts equipment. It was great fun. At the end of it all we were so confident at writing we were able to write our own versions of the story!
Terms 5 and 6
We are sure that the Summer Term will be just as much fun. We have already been to the pier, worn old fashioned costumes and learnt about different fish. We are also looking forward to another exciting book all about the seaside.
