What a Wonderful World!


Knowledge Organiser

This term we are using the books 'The Tin Forest' by Helen Ward and 'The Boy who Grew Dragons' by Andy Shepherd, as the drivers for our learning.

We will be learning about living things and their habitats and be practicing our geographical skills and fieldwork.

Don't forget to look at the knowledge organiser linked above for more details.

PE is on Monday and Friday afternoons each week!  




In Year 2 and 3 we set a homework quiz on Carousel every Tuesday, to be completed by the Monday of the following week.  We also set weekly spellings on Spelling Shed and Times Tables on TT Rockstars.


The links to the sites are here ...

After the February half term, when everyone came back after the lockdown, we did some mindfulness work, linked to the wonderful book, The Barnabus Project by the Fan Brothers.  The children made their own failed projects  and thought a lot about friendship, compassion and what it means to work together.

They really worked hard and in the end, I wasn't the only one who thought that their projects were brilliant ... one  of the authors did too!



No Pens Day Wednesday

We all had an absolutely brilliant day on No Pens Day Wednesday! 

First, we followed instructions to make some fudge using condensed milk. 

While some of us waited for our turn, we started to recycle card into some light catcher panels. 

After lunch, we went on a mythical creature hunt around our wildlife area and then made some phenomenal clay sculptures to represent our creatures.

We finished our day by mindfully tasting our delicious fudge!  

Here are some of the pictures from our brilliant day ...

The children have been working so hard for the last three weeks, learning all about real life animal heroes to help inspire them to write their own non-chronological reports.  Can you find yours?
