Term 4 - Oh but what if you fly!
We have been so busy since we arrived back from lockdown!
This term we have enjoyed a Whole school topic which has allowed us to complete many wonderful activities and learning.
In PSHE week we enjoyed circle times, 'Toasty Tuesday', making glitter jars, happy feelings bags, art work and producing some wonderful writing all about Feelings Monsters. The children all worked really hard together to make our garden look bright and colourful by planting a range of plants kindly donated by the local garden centre.
During Art week we all enjoyed working collaboratively and producing a whole class project, using David Hockey as inspiration.
In Science week we have completed fun and exciting experiments. We added water to skittles and watched all the different colours run, make towers using biscuits and melted chocolate, and cups of paint with holes in to make some messy art.
Here is our fantastic Christmas video! The children have been amazing this term and we are so proud of how well they have all coped with how different things have been this year. They have shown brilliant resilience and they all deserve a relaxing Christmas break!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
This term our topic is "Let's Sparkle!". We are beginning with a focus on Bonfire Night and Autumn before learning all about Diwali. Then we are learning about the Arctic and Antarctic before changing our focus to Christmas towards the holidays!
This term we are beginning with a focus on All About Me whilst we settle back into school life and get to know each other. We are then moving onto Fairytales including: Three Little Pigs, Goldilocks, Billy Goats Gruff, Little Red Hen and also Hansel and Gretel.
The children have been enjoying spending time in our renovated garden area and mud kitchen in our playground!
