Our Learning This Half Term

Spring 1 2018

Our topic this half term is Paws, Claws and Whiskers. During this topic we will be learning all about animals. We will find out about where animals live, what continents they live on, what they eat and how they survive in the wild. Through art we will be exploring different textures and the patterns of animals. One we have learnt all about animals we will be designing and making our own habitats. This will link to our English work where we will be exploring the story of ‘How to Hide a Lion at School’ by Helen Stephens.


Our science area for this half term is – Animals including humans

Our theme for Religious Education this half term is – Inspirational People

Memorable Experience

Last half term to complete our learning about the Great Fire of London the children chose to recreate the fire in the school playground. Throughout the week the children created tudor houses using cardboard and paper to resemble those from 1666. On the last day of term the children all watched their city burn and saw how quickly the fire spread.

Dojo Masters

Each class has two Dojo Masters. Their job is to make sure everyone is following the Firsy values; Fascinated, Independent, Respectful, Sociable and having a You can do it attitude. They also get the opportunity to greet visitors who come to visit the class.
