Summer Term Topic

Food Glorious Food

This term we are enjoying being little gardeners, planting seeds and finding out what plants need to grow and thrive. We will be planning gardens and looking at artists (Matisse, Van Gogh, Tim Lam and Andy Warhol) who have created flowers and trees, recreating their styles and ideas using paint and collage. We are also looking at what parts of plants we can eat and how important plants are to maintaining a healthy diet. We investigate what plants grow around our school and try to learn their names. We will also investigate making bread, other delicious foods and being able to write instructions on how to make them. We are also enjoying making music with Mr Clarke, singing songs about plants, food and the stories we are sharing.

In literacy we are looking at traditional tales of Jack and the Beanstalk, The Enormous Turnip and The Little Red Hen. We are using these books to inspire us to write our own versions of the stories.

Spring Term Topic

Hot and Cold

This term we are enjoying learning about Hot and Cold!

During the first half term we have been finding out about cold places i.e. the Arctic and Antarctic, and the animals that live there.

We are learning about ice, how it is made and why it melts.

We are also thinking of and testing ways that we can keep ice for longer.

We are learning about the journey of the Titanic and Robert Scott of the Antarctic.

 

During the second half term we will find out about hot places i.e. Africa and its weather along with the people and animals that live there. We will compare it with where we live.

We will look at the effects of heat on different materials and what happens when they cool again.

We will look at artists of African art including Tony Hudson and Henri Rousseau.

 

Throughout the whole of the term we will share lots and lots of stories about our topic and will learn new words to read and spell so that we can become super story tellers too.

Ice Trolls Experiment

We wanted to find out which was the best material to keep the ice trolls cold. We chose materials and wrapped them around the ice trolls. They were left together for 2 hours. Then we measured how much of the ice had melted in a measuring cylinder.
