Last half term our topic was SNAIL MAIL

1y11y121y13

Last half term our theme was Snail Mail, linked to our two English reading books 'The Jolly Postman' and 'Meerkat Mail'.  We employed a talk for writing approach and enjoyed writing postcards and sending letters to family members, which we delivered to the local Post Office and posted ourselves.

We had a treasure island theme in our Geography and Science learning, writing messages in bottles and decorating them too!  We learned to identify countries within the UK and began to look at places around the world, which we will continue this half term.  National Science Week was fun, as we utilised the school grounds to find natural objects, sorting and examining them closely with magnifying glasses. We also conducted a number of interesting experiments, all in the name of Science.

Donning superhero costumes, we took our services out to the community picking litter locally as part of the Great British Spring Clean, all part of the responsibilities we take seriously as an Eco School.

This half term our topic is SIMPLES
