Welcome back,

The start of this half term has been extremely busy. We all enjoyed our visit to Africa Alive, where we got to see in real life the animals we have been learning about. We were up close and personal to a tortoise, spiny mice and a royal python. Since we came back from our visit we have been planning and writing our recount. We have been focusing on adding extra detail to make it interesting for the reader, as well as using a range of time connectives to move us through our day. Over the next couple of weeks we will be moving on to writing information pieces about the African animals we saw on our visit. In Numeracy we have finished fractions and are moving onto measuring in centimetres.

In Art with Mrs Nightingale we are still using Africa as our inspiration but have moved onto creating African jewellery and will then try our hands at making African water jugs. In French with Mrs Gladwin, we are learning how to start a conversation with someone. In Science we are looking at Animals including humans and we are also growing our very own Amaryllis and keeping a weekly diary to see how it changes. In Topic our focus is still Africa and we will be moving on to looking at how different children’s lives are there compared to our lives here. In PE with Mr Hopkinson we are learning different types of movement and dance.

The weather is very changeable at the moment, so please make sure you still send them in with a coat. Diaries and water bottles need to be in school every day and children with longer hair need to have it tied back so it doesn’t annoy them when working.

Mrs Tilley
