Spring Term

Spring 1

This term the children have learnt about The Arctic and The Antarctic, exploring the similarities and differences between both environments. To help with our imaginative writing we trapped Miss Marshall in a snow globe and wrote about how we would feel if we were trapped. We developed our knowledge about different cultures by learning about Chinese New Year, where it was the year of the Pig. We discussed healthy eating and made a healthy food plate making sure we had lots of different variety of foods on their. We focused on time and daily routines seeing if we could order familiar events and discuss what happens at day/ night time. In Forest School we were very lucky to have snow, so the children went outside and went sledging. To round off our half term, parents were invited in to come and look at the children's homework projects.
