Welcome back! We hope you all had a lovely Easter break, ate lots of chocolate and had lots of wonderful adventures!
Samantha is the teacher and Joanne, Michelle, Rosie, Elizabeth Debra and Kirsty are our wonderful teaching assistants.
This year our swimming day is Monday and P.E is on a Friday so please send kit in so we can all have fun in the pool and do some hard work keeping fit and healthy in P.E.
Last half term we enjoyed looking at where things come from. We especially enjoyed reading the very hungry caterpillar and learning about the life cycle of a butterfly! We will also used our green fingers to plant sunflowers and learnt all about what they needed to grow. We are still looking after these in class three and they are looking good! We learnt all about Easter and who celebrates and did lots of Easter crafts and activities including decorating eggs for the egg rolling competition which we were all very ‘eggcited’ about.
This term our theme is ‘Journeys’ we are going to be learning about lots of different methods of transport both old and new. We will be getting out and about in our school minibus to explore and hopefully see these different types of vehicles. We will be reading ‘Up, up, up’, ‘The journey home from grandpa’s’ and ‘We all go traveling by’ in English. We’ll be counting vehicles in maths and also doing simple estimations and practicing counting on. In science this term we are going to be looking forces and magnets and in Art/DT we are going to be designing vehicles and a bag to take on our journeys.
Due to the snow last term, we are celebrating world book day to the 20th April and we will be reading The Princess and the Wizard to link to our world book day theme of witches and wizards.
If you at home have been on or are going on any lovely journeys please send in some photographs that we can share in class!
We are looking forward to warmer weather (hopefully) and getting out and exploring!
