The summer term began with a visit from a pet owner and their furry friend. Prior to this visit, the children were challenged to write questions to ask the pet owner in order to discover more about their animal and how to look after them.
From this, the children were inspired to conduct their own research into the animals. This research was collaborated into amazing fact files which focused on habitat, appearance and diet.
The children then engaged in the fictional text, The Tiger that came to Tea. This wonderful tale was used to explore the features of a diary which led onto the children writing their own dairy entry from the perspective of the character Sophie. Following this, the story was then used creatively as the children wrote their own version of the story, except their story had a TWIST.
In Geography, we explored maps and at lases and identified the countries and capitals of the United Kingdom and its surrounding seas.
In Math’s during this term, we have explored many new concepts including multiplication, division, factions, money and time. We used our fantastic doubling skills and counting in twos, fives and tens to help us to explore these new concepts.
Our topic, Paws, Claws and Whiskers, enabled the children to investigate and learn about different animal groups including mammals, amphibians, reptiles, and birds. We learned and compared each group’ s key characteristics.
