Spring Term Blog Updates

Friday 17th January 2020

Where have the last two weeks gone?! It hasn't taken us long to get back into the swing of things. In English the last two weeks we have started reading the holes texts and have already explored the framed narrative and show not tell descriptions. In maths we have looked at finding fractions and percentages of amounts. In topic we started with some basic USA research and created a fact file. In science we have looked at the relative sizes of the earth, sun and moon as well as how we know the world isn't flat. A busy two weeks. It was only this week (w/c 13.01.20) we didn't have forest school, we do have forest school next week.

Forest School Week 1




Thursday 2nd January

Happy New Year, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas. Thank you so much to those who bought me a gift, it was very kind and much appreciated. We will be all set to hit the ground running on Monday, our class book this term is Holes by Louis Sachar (details regarding the Holes playhouse trip will be given closer to the time). Our topic this term is the Land of the Free where we will have a geography focus, exploring different aspects of America. In science we will be looking at earth and space, RE will focus on why Easter is important to Christians, in PSHE we will be learning about legal drugs such as caffeine and cigarettes and in art we will be making dreamcatchers. This half term we will also be going swimming every Friday morning, we will also have Forest School on a Wednesday (morning/afternoon dependent on the week). Busy, busy, busy!!!
