Term 4 2018-19
Our learning this term
What a fantastic term we have had and what amazing progress the children are making. Miss Williams, Miss Thompson and Mrs Denham are so proud of their classes!
We started our term with an exciting eggs-perience! A giant egg appeared in our hall which provoked great excitement amongst the children and was the perfect way to start our term 4 topic – Out of Eggs! The children loved guessing what was inside the egg and had fun completing some eggs-periments. The children have enjoyed learning about animals this term too – mammals, amphibians, reptiles, birds and fish – we have covered them all! We have also learnt about omnivores, carnivores and the children loved making their very own animal books, filled with fun facts and beautiful pictures. Our learning did not stop here. We put our DT skills into practise by making paper mache Faberge eggs and the children loved learning about Mary Anning and her incredible fossil collection.
We have made great progress with our Maths too. This term our focus has been on mastering multiplication and division. These are taught practically and then through a pictorial representation called an array – why not ask your child about it. We are sure you will be amazed at their mathematical knowledge!
We have been busy in English too. This term we have been working on a lovely story called ‘Who am I?’ This tells the story of a lost chameleon and his quest to find out who he is. Follow this link and watch it with your child - they might even know it by heart!
The children loved learning the story and then innovating it with a new character and different setting. The children are including so much in their writing – conjunctions, question and exclamation marks, adjectives, -ed and –ing words – not to mention capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. They really are going from strength to strength.
A real highlight of this term was World Book and Around the World day. The children loved learning about South Africa, Greece and Costa Rica. Learning about the Olympics, tasting Greek salad and painting colourful giraffes are just a few of the fun activities they enjoyed.
We hope you have a wonderful Easter holiday. Keep reading with your child, practising number bonds to 20 and practising spellings. We look forward to continuing our learning journey in term 5!
