Please see below our termly planner, our knowledge organisers and what we have been getting up to this academic year!



The children have enjoyed visiting our brilliant library this week. They had a chance to explore wonderful books and take them out to read. 


Children have also loved experimenting with printing tools and paints this week in art

Children are also keeping a diary of their plants - and they are so excited about the growth they have observed and have enjoyed watering them this week.

In Science, for this term we will be looking at Everyday Materials, this week the children observed a tree, they had to draw an analysis on how trees are currently, also what season it is. 



The children in Year 1 have been enjoying playing the recorders and resiliently improving their musical skills. They've been using body percussion also and learning the song 'lazy crazy kangaroo'. 



The children created clay insects for art this week. They applied different modelling techniques to create fantastic insects made from salt dough. Children used their creative skills and art knowledge to design and describe their minibeasts.


The children have enjoyed listening to a variety of stories from other cultures this week in Literacy. Some of their favourites included 'The Elephant's Garden' and 'Handa's Surprise'. 

For science, children went out to observe winter trees and learnt about seasonal changes.
