Welcome back!

It is so lovely to see you all after the winter break! We all worked really hard last term and I hope after a much deserved break we are all ready and keen to work very hard this term!  Our new topic is a really fun one 'Vroom Vroom' and the children already seem really enthusiastic about it- helping to create our new train book corners! With June fast approaching, when the phonics screening is taking place for your children, please make the most of your new Espresso log in and explore the phonics section in Key Stage 1 under the English section. It has video clips that show and say the sounds for you and games for the children to play to really develop their phonic skills, which in turn will help them with their reading and writing. Thank you for your continued support!

In P.E. this term we have been exploring gymnastics. We have been learning about travelling using different parts of our bodies. We have also been doing mirroring tasks copying our partners moves. We are very flexible and can move our bodies in many different ways.

In science this half term we have been looking at plants. We have been on a nature walk round Jubilee to see what grows in our school. We have explored different types of flowering plants including trees and have learnt about the function of each different part of a plant. To make our play area look beautiful in the spring and summer term we have started to plant bulbs and seeds in our garden area. We have learnt about how to care for plants and all the things they need to grow! With Mrs Huq's green fingers and our knowledge we hope they will bloom beautifully in the coming weeks.

In D.T. this half term we have been designing and making our own land vehicles. After designing our vehicles we painted them and then added the features. We used various tools to cut and join our axles and wheels to make our vehicles move. After completing our designs and making our products we reviewed them to see what we could improve next time. Come and take a look in class at our fabulous creations!

In Science we have been looking at 'Animals including humans'. For one of our lessons we went on a bird walk around our local area. We saw swans, magpies, parakeets, pigeons, crows and even a woodpecker!

In English we looked at the story 'No Dinner' we role played different scenes from the story. First we pretended to be the different animals who wanted to eat the poor old woman. Then we acted out the part when the old woman ate so much food and became really fat!
