Summer Term 2019
Our topic for this term is "Why do people live on an island and what does it teach us?" Our wonderful stories will allow our imaginations to take us to places we have never visited before. We will creep through the hidden island 'Where the Wild Things Are' and with the help from our science unit learn all about different plants that grow all around the world. Our summer school trip to Martineau Gardens will enable us to explore how plants grow and the different vegetation we have in the UK and abroad.
After half term we will be packing our lunch boxes and visiting Mr Grinling at his lighthouse. 'The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch' is one of a collection of stories all about Mr and Mrs Grinling, so why not read the others during this topic! Our wonderful Easter holiday projects enabled the children to discover the purpose of a lighthouse and learn about the importance of these on our coastlines. This will lead onto our geography work all about the British coastlines, where we will continue with our map reading skills and looking at aerial photographs.
Life on an Island
What a fantastic start to our topic to our new topic!
The children shared their Easter holiday projects to support our learning this term.
Where the Wild Things Are
Part of the story retold by Miss Power and year one.
The sun was shining down on reception as they ventured to the beautiful Martineau Gardens. The children spent the day exploring the woodland area, identifying trees and plants, tasting the herbs in the allotment and learning all about the process of pollination.
Mr Grinling's Packed Lunch
The children have spent the term learning about instructions. They worked in groups to create a set of instructions and produce delicious sandwiches! The children used their computing skills to record their instructions and became fantastic TV chefs!
