This half term we have focused on two main stories: 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' and 'The Teeny Weeny Tadpole'. We have been looking at life cycles, including the life cycle of a frog, butterfly and flower. We looked at each stage of the life cycle, and what happens during each stage. We planted sunflower seeds in the classroom, using compost and seeds. We have been watching our plants very carefully, and watching them grow! They are growing really high now! Also, we have been examining the frogspawn in Miss Keith's classroom. We know that the frogspawn will grow into tadpoles and beyond!
Spring 2 Letters:
This half term we have been looking at two main stories; 'Whatever Next!' and 'Owl Babies'. We have learnt the names of different planets, and some important facts about them too. Did you know that Saturn has 22 moons? We have discussed what we would take if we were to fly to the Moon on a rocket! We had some great suggestions, such as sandwiches, pets and even binoculars! Finally, we looked at what nocturnal animals are and how they are different to animals that are active during the day.
Spring 1: Letters
This half term we have focussed on two main Fairytales set in woodland areas, 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears' and 'Little Red Riding Hood'. We looked at the different characters in the story and thought about how they felt. We examined different woodland animals and the habitats that they live in. We covered lots of different events and celebrations, such as Bonfire Night, Remembrance Day and Christmas! We finished the term performing our Christmas Play. We hope you enjoyed it!
Autumn 2: Letters
People Who Help Us
We spent time this half term becoming familiar with our new teachers, classroom and routines. This half term we focussed on different people that might help us- teachers, doctors, nurses, police officers and firefighters. We had visits from two Police officers who work in Chaddesden, and Firefighters that work locally too. We had the opportunities to ask them what it's like doing their job. We even had the chance to sit in the fire engine itself!
