What a busy and exciting first week back we have had!
The children had an amazing time on Wednesday when Sarah McIntyre came to visit, she ran a workshop with us in the hall, she read Grumpycorn and then gave us a drawing class. We were all able to draw our own versions of Grumpycorn and name them after our favourite food!
Here are some of our versions:
We had Paul from the Wildlife Trust come in and teach us all about the different tress we could find in our forest school, the children did an amazing job of spotting the different shapes and textures of the leaves. We talked about how the trees change across the different seasons and what animals do to survive (hibernate, migrate or tough it out!).
We have also started our new Humanities topic of 'Adventurers and Explorers', this week we have been thinking about what we might need for a trip to the jungle. The children have filled their rucksacks with what an explorer would need in the jungle. Bug spray was a popular choice!
Just a quick update on what we are learning about this half term.
English - RWI Phonics
Maths - Multiplication and Division then we will be starting our Fractions unit which we will then finish after half term.
Science - Plants

PE - Saints PE on a Monday and REAL PE on a Tuesday
Mr Dray will continue to teach Art and Music weekly.
We are having a lovely day with Sarah McIntyre and will update you at the end of the week.
I am so sorry for the delayed publishing of this post!
We had a wonderful last week of term before the holidays. We learnt all about the Christian story of Easter and created our own Easter gardens. We used our noticing skills to find and collect natural objects to include in our gardens (photos below). We also applied our maths learning all about measuring weight and created our Easter Egg Nest Cakes, we had to read the recipe and measure the ingredients accurately.
