Literacy

Our key text in literacy is Big, Bad Owl by Steve Smallman. We have used the text to write character descriptions, focusing on using adjectives to describe nouns. We have also described the setting of Cupcake Wood. Our final written outcome was to retell the story. We published our own books to share with our families and friends.

We have also enjoyed reading more of Steve Smallman's books in story time. We think he is a very funny author! Here is the link to his website:

Science

In Science, we have investigated growth in humans - discussing how humans change as they grow. We have investigated our bodies, measuring different body parts, and found that the oldest people are not always the tallest!

Art

We have looked at two artists - L.S. Lowry and Paul Horton. After looking at their work, we compared their styles and looked at the different colours they use in their pictures. We have looked closely at the buildings in their pictures and tried to replicate the lines and shapes they use.

Geography

We explored our local area to find human and physical features, recording the things we found along our route. It was very interesting to look closely at the buildings that we walk past regularly but never have the chance to study carefully.

Music

Mrs Brunton has worked with us to teach us a new song, 'Hands, Feet, Heart.' It is an Afro-Pop song. We practised call and response and put actions to the lyrics. We have also joined in with our singing assemblies, learning the songs 'Sunshine' and 'We Run the Show.'

Forest School

We used our senses to make a list of nouns that we could see, hear, touch and smell in the forest school. We thought about our favourite places and enjoyed hot chocolate around the campfire, YUM!
