We started the half term with a WOW week to compliment our topic on 'The Great Outdoors'. We have been learning all about our school, it's history and what lives in the school environment. On Monday we had a visit from Pat Nicholls who told us all about how the school came to be here and explained to us that it used to be run by nuns. Later in the week we have studied the native trees, flowers and mini beasts found in the school grounds. We finished off on Friday by enjoying the outdoor, learning together through team building exercises. It was a lot of fun. There are lots of photos of us in the gallery section!!! We will continue this topic by studying the life and growth of plants in the coming weeks.
The fun continued throughout May as we learnt all about France, it's regions and culture. We enjoyed map work, comparing climates and contrasting the school systems to name but a few. In English we worked hard to improve our punctuation and grammar and to write some truly excellent non chronological reports about France, some are on the wall - do come in to see them if you have the time. As part of our computing we then converted paragraphs of our reports to QR codes and presented them on posters. In maths we have been learning about fractions and decimals.
We kicked off the new term in grand style with our French day and French breakfast! (See more photos below in the gallery) We are really looking forward to finding out all about 'Fabulous France' this term.
The children have been working hard on their story writing skills, we have really enjoyed reading the graphic novel 'Roman Rescue' - our stories are based on this! You can hear one of our stories and all about the other things we have been learning at our class assembly on Friday 31st March at 9.05am.
