What we are learning

Spring Term 2019

 

This term we will be learning all about The Artic and the Antarctic through our topic, 'Polar Explorers.' The children will learn about the 7 continents and the 5 oceans. They will learn about the different animals who live in the North and South pole and think about their habitat. We will be using Talk 4 writing to help us learn the story of Norbett, a penguin who has a special talent, who goes on a big adventure and discovers the world. The children are already excited about learning lots of facts about penguins and polar bears and we would be delighted to see any additional home learning on these animals!

Next half term, we have planned a trip to the 'Living Coasts, ' which will include a workshop to help the children learn as much as possible about the climates the animals live in, details to follow shortly.

CURRICULUM OVERVIEWS

The Great Fire of London!

 

This term we will be studying 'The Great Fire of London.' The children have already enjoyed their 'Hook morning' with a campfire and marshmallows in the woods! Last week the children discussed why fire was useful and how it can also be dangerous. We have learnt where and when the Great Fire of London started. We are now getting ready to make bread just like Mr Thomas Farriner. In Literacy the children have started to learn the text “Toby and the Great Fire of London and they have used 'Talk 4 writing' actions to help them remember the sequence of events!
