Terms 1 and 2
During Terms 1 and 2 Rabbit Class worked on the Topic 'Me and My World'. We read familiar and traditional stories in English. We made a map of our classroom in Geography and in Science we began our year-long study of the Seasons. Over the year in Maths we have been developing our understanding of numbers, how to add and subtract and our concept of time.
Terms 3 and 4
In Terms 3 and 4 our Topic has been 'Man on the Moon'. First we met Bob, a Man on the Moon by Simon Bartram and then we met lots of different aliens. This helped us write descriptions and poems. In History we learned about real men on the Moon, in particular Neil Armstrong and Tim Peake. We researched Space and made our own books.
Terms 5 and 6
In Terms 5 and 6 the Topic is 'The Seaside.' This incorporates our learning about the Seasons, through which we also explore Art and Design throughout the year. It is the perfect Topic and time of year for our Year 1 trip too! 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.
