School trip to Lee on Solent
We had a wonderful but rainy trip to Lee on Solent this week as part of our Coasts topic. The children had a great time playing beach games, making art in the style of Andy Goldsworthy, exploring the beach, looking for human and physical features and of course eating ice cream! They have learnt so much and will be writing a recount if he trip in Literacy next week.
As part of our science and outdoor learning week we welcomed some little, wriggly critters into our classroom in the form of 5 caterpillars. We are eagerly awaiting the transformation from caterpillar into butterflies. The children keep any eye on them we talk about changes we notice.
Today we had a visit from Gosport and Fareham Inshore Rescue. The children learnt about the role of the lifeboat rescue team and how to keep safe in and near the water.
We really enjoyed welcoming all the parents into our classroom last week in our parent event. The children and parents really enjoyed making 'gas mask' boxes as part of our WW2 topic. The children followed a set of instructions.
Happy New Year!
The children are settling back into the school routine and enjoying our new World War 2 topic
Week beginning 7th January
We had a surprise visitor in class this week as we found footprints in our classroom. There was a note and a book saying 'read me'. The book was the 'Gruffalo' so the children have enjoyed retelling the story this week and thinking about the descriptive language they could use. They will be writing their own versions of the story next week.
The children had a lovely last day of term with a tinsel trail, a visit from Father Christmas's reindeer's and a special trip to his grotto. Magical!
