Welcome back after the Easter break. This half-term we are studying a new topic, 'Traditional Tales.' We will be looking at stories like: The Three Little Pigs; Goldilocks and the Three Bears and stories from other cultures like The Story of Fire as told by Native Americans.
As part of our topic on 'People who help us', we met a paramedic and a firefighter. We really enjoyed finding out how they help to keep us safe.
During our work on 'Transport', we made paper planes. We really enjoyed flying our paper planes to see whose could fly the furthest.
We have been making boats and finding out about floating and sinking.
In the Autumn term we learnt about ourselves in our topic 'Marvellous Me.' We found out about keeping safe in school and how to stop germs spreading. Here is our handwashing song. (Sing to the tune of Row, row, row your boat.)
Wash, wash, wash your hands
Wash them nice and clean.
Wash the top, the bottom and
The fingers in between.
This half term we have enjoyed our topic 'Into the Woods'. We have learnt the story 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' by Michael Rosen and 'The Gruffalo' by Julia Donaldson. We have also enjoyed finding out about Christmas. The Elf has appeared and is watching our every move. No-one wants to go on the 'naughty' list!
We hope you enjoyed our Christmas Performance of 'Aliens Love Christmas' as much as we did. Thank you to everyone who came and provided the lovely costumes.
Don't forget our second Stay and Play session on Thursday morning. Please stay and enjoy some activities with your child, it will also be an opportunity to look at the work they have been doing in school this term.
On Friday 8th September, we visited the Library Bus. We very much enjoyed reading the books and can't wait to go back.
We have been finding out about the artist Guiseppe Arcimboldo. He painted pictures of people using fruit, vegetables and other plants. Here is one of his pictures.
Here are some of our own 'Arcimboldo' pictures. Make sure you come and see the rest in class.
